Yep I am back from a week’s long V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N!!!! I know you didn’t even know I was gone, that is what makes blogging so mysterious. 🙂
I had a wonderful, awesome, great, fun, RELAXING vacation. Can you tell I am still excited about it!
For those of you who read my blog regularly like sweet Mimi( who takes the greatest pictures of her kids!) at He and Me and 3, you know I am a busy momma!
I was reading about Faith’s summer vacations at Gold in the Clouds and really felt the same way she did, about having a time of rest. She said that God is in the restoration business, and I thought to myself if I am so busy, I can so easily miss His restoration Power! But I am also smart enough to know that everyone needs some down time, and a time of reflection, renewal, and time to refocus. And that is just what this vacation provided for us.
I am thankful for time to get away with my family. We traveled to the Adirondacks in upstate NY. It’s a perfect example of God’s marvelous handiwork! We visited Ausable Chasm, a beautiful example of God’s beauty. We also went tubing down a river with pretty impressive rapids, and yes I screamed as I went through them on a tube!
We camped together in a tent, and played lots of ping pong, ate smores, and survived a rainy night in the tent. We then made our way to a motel on Lake George. We hiked a 4,000+ mountain and did lots of kayaking. I even read a book, nothing like Linda at Mocha with Linda, she is such an avid reader, but I was happy to get A book read!
We loved the beauty of the area, we were so far North at one point we were close to the Canadian border, I thought about hoping the border to visit my favorite Canadian blogger, Susanne at Living to Tell the Story
There were so many of you that I missed reading this week, I always appreciate the spiritual insight and encouragement I get from Alicia at Confessions of a Snowflake, and my dear friend Beautiful Grace.
But, before you know it I will be back and school along with my other fellow, special ed teacher blogger, Beth at Walk a Mile. But for now enjoy some of our vacation pictures. 🙂

At the Ausable Chasm, we walked and drove over that bridge. And yes I am afraid of heights!
