I have a standing date with my friend, Melissa, to walk on Tuesday evenings. Admittedly it has not happened more than it has happened. This being blamed on illness in the Spring and heat over this Summer. However, on the occasions that we have walked my reaction has been anything from enjoyment to pure torture. Poor Melissa. This is not me at my best. For sure! I get cranky. But bless her heart she just bears with me and keeps encouraging our Tuesday dates.
Last night we went to a new place to walk. It was way better than our usual walking spots. This was a park deeply hidden in the woods of Lancaster County. It took us a while to find it again. You see, Warren and I had been here before with our church group, but that was about five years ago. So following the directions in the phone we attempted to find it. The phone knew what it was trying to tell us but we did not get it. We wandered a bit until Warren just went the way he thought it was and we arrived.
Shortly after I took this photo I realized what time it was.
We were due at another park to meet more friends for
Ultimate Frisbee....the kids, not me...
Time had flown
such was the beauty here.
My camera and I were having a ball.
So up to the park in Lancaster we went.
Chelsea was already there but we were delivering Jonathan
and meeting up with friends Amy and Deanna.
One of the things I miss most about home schooling is meeting
with friends while our kids take sports or play together.
This was kind of like that.
Even though our presence is no longer required
for our offspring to get together it is nice to
make it happen from time to time.
Especially when we can choose a nice Summer evening
for the occasion.
There were a lot of young people out to play
As the moon became more distinct in the sky
the kids stopped the game and ate their traditional
ice cream bars.
It was just a perfect way to spend an evening.
