It feels like we have been on the run all summer. Tomorrow the girls and I are meeting some friends in Balmorhea, Tx at the state park. http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/spdest/findadest/parks/balmorhea/ It is an artesian spring in the middle of the dessert that has a huge pool from the spring. I've discovered today that we really don't need to go, we just needed snorkel, mask and fins for our 'white trash pool'. The kids have been testing out the equipment for an hour now.
We are also going to the McDonald observatory in the Davis Mt's. The McDonald observatory is the darkest area in the U.S. and we are going to the star watching party (even though the little girl doesn't "like science") but knowing that it is the darkest place around I'm a little concerned about the drive out of those mountains...
We are meeting friends from the Dallas area, we have known them forever but our families are very different. My friend isn't a Christian. She and her family go to a Unitarian church. We have discussed religion often and she knows how strongly I feel about the subject. I love them, I hope we are a good witness to them and I pray faithfully for them. I hope one day we make a difference in their beliefs.
On a different note, today is 1 year and 78 lb. since my lap band surgery!
