Scrapping in a beautiful cabin with a beautiful view of the lake--it doesn't get much better than that!
I was able to get away on a scrapbook this past weekend. It was such a refreshing time. The highlight by far was the company I shared it with. There were 10 of us from all walks of life...and bonded by this common bond of enjoying each other's company while getting some scrapbooking done.
It is an interesting phenomenon that most moms need to get away from the kids for awhile on a weekend like this. But, after sorting and scrapping pictures of the kids all weekend, they are reminded of why they do what they do everyday and are renewed in their love for each of the children. It is refreshing to be reminded of the sweet moments of a child's life...
My favorite memory of this weekend will always be the impromptu Saturday night sing along! From the theme to Gilligan's Island to Jim Croce's "Time in a bottle," we sang it all! It was so hysterical--I am so thankful that some of the people could actually sing because I sure can't. Remembering the words to any song is not my strong point. But I am good at making new words if I have to...not necessarily a skill that is helpful--but funny anyway!
What a gift it is to have a husband who is always up for a challenge at home. I didn't worry at all when I was gone.
