Labor Day was spent at the family cabin at Strawberry Reservoir. We met most of the Lewis clan for our annual bbq. We did this last year too. It was a lot of fun. It makes me sad that I don't make more of an effort to go up there. The kids love it. I have fond memories of spending my childhood there. We would get filthy making sand stone sculptures, climbing in and out of the meadow, hiking to the water tank and the beaver dam. But it has been years since I have spent more than an afternoon up there.
PJ and some of his cousins thought it would be so much fun to make a new mud slide. They would climb up the hill a few feet and slide down on their backsides, getting completely covered in dirt. I have never seen PJ get so dirty. He had so much fun. Liza went hiking around with anyone who would take her anywhere. She loves hiking and exploring in the outdoors.
No longer a stay-at-home Mom, I am super busy. I the last few weeks, I have been diagnosed with Graves' Disease and gone back to work. I am now running the Take Home Reading and STARS tutoring programs at the same school my children attend. A job that began to pay the medical bills, has since become a very fulfilling path to express my talents.
