It is impossible for me to figure out how to share over 200 pictures of the worlds most wonderful vacation with you. Our BWCA trip was the best. The weather did not cooperate most of the time but being in the most beautiful spot in the world, weather is just a minor problem. We went a total of 45 miles with 2 miles or so of portaging. I had time to sit and relax and ponder what comes next in life when Mike graduates this next year. I had time to hike, fish and play with Mike and enjoy him and his antics. I had time to get to know 4 other teens whom one that is heading to college in a short 20 days, one that says her ducks aren't in a row yet and just not sure what her future will go. She turned 18 while we were on our trip so we treated her to a necklace and pair of earrings I made just for her in colors her parents said were her favorite. Both were eye openers for Mike because people, teachers, family, friends are always asking that "what are you going to do when you graduate." He really isn't positive yet. He has picked a college he's interested in and classes to study but then there's the family business he wants to be a big part of, his choices are not easy ones but he got to see that it can take time and he's young and he doesn't have to know it all now or even in the near future. The sites, sounds, feelings are so perfect in the BWCA that it gives such a feeling of peace.

I am going to see what I can add here without over doing it. Just look and enjoy and I am sure I'll have to add a few more as the week goes on. I uploaded my photos today to snapfish to be printed, all 170 of them. That's just from my camera (which got broke so not sure what I'm going to be doing for a bit. Kim said I could borrow hers but I hate doing that, what if I screw up and break hers?) there's still two other people with pictures too and totally different ones then I took, I can't wait to see them too.

There are so many to choose from. This is all for tonight. I'll share a few more tomorrow.

Take care and God Bless. Thank you for letting me share such a special vacation and such a terrific young man. Love to you all!!!
