It's been a beautiful Spring at Camp Lake.
I'm blown away at how all the kiddos are so much older looking than last year! Benjamin is a year and a half, now, and such a fun filled little person, watching his brothers and sisters, and still prettymuch the center of adoration around here!
Charity is growing into a very inquisitive little girl who loves science, microscopes, new projects, and popsicles. :)
Anders is full fledged little boy this year, definitely out of the toddler era! He likes to take care of his sisters, follow Dad around whenever possible, and still has the happy hearted robust little personality he was born with. :)
At our favorite park in Mountain, the Town Hall park.
I'm so thankful to be expecting, and I'll be extra thankful when the nausea subsides soon! In the midst of the sickness, I have ben able to enjoy life in little bits and pieces! The time is passing, and all of us can't wait to meet him or her! This is bound to be the tie breaker.
I've started the vigils to Antigo where I go for the baby checkups. I'm really thankful for a good and kind doctor and for a hospital that reminds me of the goodness of the Lord.
Snickers is another new addition to the resort this year. He sure loves snacks!
John and Esther have been busy this Spring patching many rowboats around the grounds, hauling them up and down from lakes, welding, sanding, painting. The pretty red chairs to the right they rescued from the Dump one day and sanded and repainted a beautiful color for us. Esther has been helping me very much with the kiddos during the sick days.
For Father's Day weekend, my Dad, far right, just ahead of Steve, visited with my Mom and we had a wonderful weekend together. Folks at church were surprised how young they looked! This picture is of a prayer that Pastor Ben made for all the fathers in the congregation. What a special morning.
Dad and Mom always insist on helping in many ways when they come. Somehow Dad whipped together the complete installation of new doors to both Pine Hideaway and Pine Haven. They also managed to give our kids the time of their life with much attention, presents, and swimming down at the lake.
The new door at Pine Hideaway lets in so much more light and has built in blinds. I'm just thrilled.
Steve has been busy, busy, busy, getting the cabins up and ready this year. here is raising the dock at the Green Cottage.
It is a little hard to see the rope, but the tractor is pulling a rope around a tree I believe and providing leverage for the dock raising. Steve successfully completed the task and then stained the dock a pretty green.
The boys love riding the pickup truck, or occasionally getting to sit in the mower (not while moving). If Anders gets a ride in the pickup, and Benjamin sees through the window or outside, Ben will start fussing! So much they don't want to miss out on.
The resort is full of guests and a busy summer lies ahead. Looking forward to watching the kids enjoy it all!
Thank you for joining our family for a minute as we share with you glimpses of our life in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. Steve and I run a small resort and have four children, Charity, Ellie, Anders and Benjamin. I enjoy writing, cooking, homeschooling, and watching old movies with Steve. :)
