We had our 12 year old granddaughter and 15 year old grandson visit us this July. That kept us busy with fun kid stuff.
We took them camping in the mountains to reacquaint them with their home state. We stayed at Shadow Mountain Lake but my battery system for the inflatable boat had a disconnected wire so we didn’t get to troll around. But the kids got in the water and generally we enjoyed out of doors.
t was cloudy and rainy driving down the east side of the mountains so we didn’t stay one more night. We just drove all the way home.
Alice spent lots of time with her friends in the US and a lifelong friend of Spencer’s came to visit. Tao and Spencer met in nursery school as babies. It was great to see him and his mom.
Before the end of Alice’s stay we drove down to the amazing Garden of the Gods. We all hiked a bit. Alice and Spencer went together. And we watched the rock climbers.
We sent Alice home but the plan is for Spencer to stay the school year to get some US education and play “real” football.
