"For I know the plans that I have for you,'declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11

Sunday dawned and hubby and I joined our daughter, her hubby and her three girls to participate in our local Memorial Day Festival. There were so many great activities from the 5K run/walk to a rock climbing wall, bungee experience, Scottish highland games, concert plus a lovely area of town to hang out in. This is the first 5K I've ever walked although I've walked around the lake many times, just never in a timed competition. Needless to say I did not do as well as I had hoped but I did finish. Of course having our granddaughter finish the race with us certainly helped. My next goal is to improve my time by walking more and bike riding. Hubby and I especially liked the Highland games~watching the men throw the hammer, shot put and the girls throw a hay type bale over a 24' high bar. We did not get to see the men throw the cabers but loved seeing all the great effort and emotion they put into their games. We hope to see them again Labor Day weekend in Estes Park. Our weekend finished with rain, hail, thunder and of course lighting with more in the forecast. Got to love living in a state where the weather changes constantly.
I am a daughter of the King, saved by grace for 38 yrs. I am married to my best friend and beloved for 39 years. I was born and lived most of my life in Northern Calif. until moving to Colorado. We homeschooled our girls for years and I love encouraging my daughters and others in their homeschooling. Hubby and I are blessed to have two incredible daughters and sons-in-law and 11 grandkids. I love spending time with my family & our dog Hunter, friends, plus quilting whenever I can.
