a lake and a kitchen

Muddy dig 1a

"I drive tractor today" 

Yep. He did! Without Tegan staying on top of the lake dig at camp, I'm not sure anything would be getting done!Muddy dig 2

Muddy dig 3He's going to be letting all the readers of the e-newsletter know about it via his first vlog! Yeah. That is when his mother gets around to getting that newsletter done. ahem. (don't get our WM e-newsletter? go here to tell us you want it!)

Muddy dig 1The sunshine is good for this muddy pit that will soon be our new lake site! With it drying up a bit, the boys are trying to take down the rest of the trees and burn them so digging can commence! Oh, how fabulous to have a larger-than-the-creek body of water on our camp property

In other news:

We sho' do thank ye!

Happy day to you, friends!

Gravel + Dirt

Journey with me along our camp road:

MudMade of dirt and gravel, our road fits its surroundings.

Ditch We've created ditches to direct the runoff into the creek.

RiverBut the rain still makes its own ditches with every storm.

Mud-holeMudholes for splashing in find their way into our road!

Dragging So the boys will hop on their big orange tractor and start dragging the road.


Up-top to make it ready for the guests that will be traveling its way!

These roads are big upkeep and I'm sure that if we could snap our fingers this would be one of the first changes we'd make.  But much like life, we travel the road we are given, bumpy or not, and we are grateful!
