Lu Lu was happy to go.
We camped by a little lake in a pretty much deserted KOA campground up near Frappy's college. I prefer to camp in a more primitive setting but KOA's are nice for a base when you will be doing things elsewhere. I can't imagine going to stay at one and not going anywhere else even though they have all sorts of ammenities like miniture golf, game rooms, fitness rooms, cabins, paddle boats, etc. With it being off season, those things were not available while we were there.
We've got some family drama going on... with all three kids. Chai Tea has dropped out of college and will be leaving us in a couple weeks to move in with her boyfriend in Mississippi. Frappy and Cuppa Joe broke up. (uhhh... update... they are back together. OY! The DrAmA!!!) Double Shot has not been doing his homework and is ineligible to play ball next week.
Double Shot wrote us a very heartfelt and honest letter last night. It was difficult for me to read. The changes in our family have been hard on him, as they have been on all of us.
My voice, the problems with our children, the suicide of my friend, the problems within our country... the disconnect I feel at church... How do other people get through this stuff with grace? I know we are not the only family to go through these sorts of things... Sigh.
