Vince texted this photo to us today. He climbed to Viewing Rock with his friend Jack. Ignoring the first rule of scouting – “be prepared” – they failed to bring water and Vince hiked in his Vans sneakers. Hmmm. This summer has reinvigorated his desire to be able to work at other scout camps including Sea Base which means he wants to do a bunch of things like lifeguarding and boat safety.
Our newest across-the-street neighbors invited us to their housewarming party. They are approx. 20 years younger than us and the invitation indicated that the evening’s activities were going to be ping pong and video games. I was concerned that they were still in the furniture-acquiring phase of life and that it might be hard to find a spot for Edda to sit down. But first, in order to find that out, we had to go through the pouring rain and up about 12 narrow and steep steps. Challenging, but doable.
Jeremy looks good in a floral backpack.
They are still acquiring furniture (the whole living room is fabulously filled with only the ping pong table), but we found a seat for Edda to sit down which just happened to be the closest to the food.
It was delicious even though Edda wasn’t sure at first.
