After 3 weeks without Internet up here in the woods, we are back! Its been a surprisingly blissful few weeks. John has loved not having the computer to compete with in the evenings (a good wake up call for us, we didn't even realize he was competing!) We were so lucky that the 3 weeks happened to coincide with 'summer' here in Northern Michigan, it got here late but finally got here! The past weeks have been wonderful. Filled with days sailing and spent at the park. These weeks have been important for us as a family as well. Learning (remembering) to stop to smell the flowers. Watching a bald eagle cross the sky at our beach. Realizing just how much pure JOY John has brought to us.
