Labor Day Weekend

We had another wonderful weekend at camp. I was kind of sad because it really is the last "summer" weekend we will be spending there this year. The boys are going to be so busy every weekend with soccer that we will be lucky to get up there once in the coming months. The summer just flew by and as happy as I am for fall and winter, I am very sad to see this summer end.
Trevor and Nolan learned to fly fish this weekend. They both loved it and from what I am told are both good at it.

Very much like their personalities, Nolan is quick and impatient, but he seems to have the technique pretty down. He caught quite a few fish, including some bass.

Trevor on the other hand, just started practicing this afternoon. He spent most of the weekend inside. His ear was bothering him so we took him to Urgent Care on Saturday to find out he had an ear infection. When he was finally feeling better he came out to learn and he really loves it, too. He is much more thoughtful and methodical about the way he casts. He caught a few sun fish and two that were rather large.

Both of them look forward to many may days of fly fishing on our lake.

Griffin had a tearful mixed with smiles kind of weekend. I think all the transitions he has had this last week have him acting out a little. I am sure once he is settled in his routine all will be good.
Going to bed on Friday night was not easy. I finally thought Griffin was asleep only to walk into the room and find him like this. I cuddled up with him and we were both fast asleep.
He visited his favorite store on the lake and got some ice cream at the farmers market.
Griffin decided he was going to go on a hike and this was his hiker "get up". A walking stick and a candy necklace over one shoulder, go figure.
So tonight I am pretty sad to say good bye to a wonderful summer, but I know we are beyond blessed to have had the summer we did with the ones we love.
Happy Labor Day!
