This summer, we had the good fortune of going to Sandy’s cottage. Sandy is not only my neighbor but a good friend of mine and used to watch the kids for me when I drove school bus so the kids are very familiar with her and her kids. Emma and Gerrit were sooo excited to go when I told them about it. She invited us to come for a few days up there and it was a blast. We hung out in the sun, on the beach, by the dock and on the boat. It was a definetely tiring but it was fun!!!! Looking outside at all the snow makes me really miss it.
