Boy, do I have some catching up to do! It’s been a busy year and my poor blog has really suffered. I thought I’d spend an hour or two tonight working on it. I really have enjoyed having a place to record all of our little adventures over the years and I revisit my photos often..usually as a reminder that sunny days and good times lay ahead!
This has been a crazy, busy, wonderful year for our family! In September our camping trips came to a pretty abrupt halt. Our goal over the three years that we’ve owned our trailer was to use it at least once a month, and until this fall, we did! The beginning of this school year though brought a lot of change for us. I’m a teacher, so most of the month of September was spent opening my fourth grade classroom. On top of that, our youngest son was leaving for his first year of college and we were busy trying to help him organize his room of 16 years into boxes…that took some time – and patience!
In October, Todd and I became grandparents for the first time…an event that was more special and exciting than we could have ever imagined. We are now the very proud grandparents of a beautiful little girl! In December I finished 15 months of active treatment for breast cancer and then the holidays were upon us. Phew!
Now life is calming down…routines are taking shape and we’re learning how to fill our time in this empty nest of ours! What fun!
Our last trip before our hiatus, was to Blue Bay Campground at Suttle Lake. This was our third visit to Blue Bay and I will say without a doubt that it still ranks as one of our favorite places to camp during the summer months. The sites are huge, private and most afford you a view of the lake. The campground is also just a short drive from Sisters, Oregon which has some fun galleries and stores to explore. If you’re visiting central Oregon, this is a campground you’ll want to visit!
