We traveled home to the lake while Jeff went to cross country camp in Alamosa. Dad flew out so he could help me make the long trek home. What a great guy!
While the kids achieved many of their goals (Jackson-bare-footing, Emma-skiing without the binding strap, skiing over the wake; Will- slaloming), Dad managed to put us to work- me especially :). Each day we lifted 70 lb blocks to construct this ginormous retaining wall, and cut (Jeff's job once he returned) and place 30 lb capstones. I didn't need to go on a run while I was there, because the kids and I were put through the Ross Johnson Boot Camp!
We even managed to sneak in a trip or two to Zorbaz, and an outing to the Perham County Fair. They loved the rides and fair cuisine.
