February in Pictures [2014]

FebruaryInPics-1 FebruaryInPics-2February was a month feeling scattered and out of routine for our Whisper Mountain Crew. Having enjoyed traveling or snow days on end, we are looking foward to the serious focus of March! The in-between of February – dousing of snow and teasing of spring — seems to have run its course, we've survived a bit of cabin fever, and we emerge ready to plunge full steam ahead with our summer programming and preparing! Getting those proverbial ducks in a row! While the crew does that, my kids enjoy some Saturday school and longer school days through the week to make up for all the days missed this month! Mhhm…good times! I assure you they are rejoicing–I drip with sarcasm!

On a more sincere note: thanks for coming to spend a few minutes here each day! You are pretty awesome! How was your February?! You looking forward to anything in March?!

January has already brought some hiccups, frustrations and stress, but strewn throughout all of that are the moments of delight, togetherness, and purposeful living. Whisper Mountain is in full gear prepping for our summer program, expanding and improving our facilities, and filling the calendar with many people coming to escape their noise and encounter God's whisper! We are thrilled!

Have you planned a getaway to Whisper Mountain yet? Now's a great time to gather some people and make some plans! We would delight in serving you!

a remedy stroll

January deadlines are feeling heavy. What's the remedy? Go for a stroll! Here's a peek at Whisper Mountain right now.

WhisperMountain-mud// ground awaiting its lake transformation

WhisperMountain-Sticks// playful propps (were the guys playing cowboys and Indians?)

// splashes of color growing on the barn

WhisperMountain-falling-forest// fallen (dying) forest everywhere

WhisperMountain-mud-puddles// jus' my shoes get little wet, mom (draw out the "o" in a whine here!)

Lots of mud. Lots of messes. But just the remedy I was in need of!

Make it a point to get outside today! Always a day-changer!
