Sleep Sacks and Monkeys
|Penny and I were lagging behind....making our way to the bridge.|

The whole family lives for the weekend now. When we don't have to fight traffic, don't have to sit in class for hours,when we can sleep in until 6 or 6:30, eat pancakes on Sunday with "toppings" (strawberry, blueberry, Carmel or chocolate) and Skype with friends and family (been having poor connections lately). This Saturday after church we took off for another hike into the mountains. This time we headed to the base of the water fall. The children waded in the water....though it is very cold because at night the temperatures are in the 50's.
Then Darron saw movement near the top of the water fall. Ever ready with binoculars in hand he spotted 3 monkeys. They were eating a fruit in the bushes. After a while they started scaling down the cliff. The monkeys blended in with the foliage; however, we were able to keep track of them fairly well. All of us thought it was so cool to see monkeys free. Andrew is really hoping that he will get to raise a baby monkey. I personally believe I already have a barrel full!
Darron is feeling much better. All of us are for that matter. I think all of us had "it" to a much lesser degree and are all marveling at how much easier life feels this week...... it is Monday....but we are optimistic.
