We spent the morning and early afternoon hanging out with members of the Special MIA/Scouting group that Matthew has been working with for the past few months. We did a craft involving leather stamping and sent the scouts and young women through an obstacle course that included shooting hoops, kicking soccer balls and finding the beauty and uniqueness of the nature surrounding us (this also including finding a "face" on a tree) Merwin Hanneberg was the host and one of the trees in his front yard had a scraggly looking face including eyes, nose and mouth on it. It looked like it was a yard decoration that he and Brit have had there for years. We ended the activity with lunch that included hamburgers, hot dogs and roasting marshmallows in the fire pit.
We enjoyed spending time and talking with our choir friends, as well as eating more good food. We also gave some canoe rides to the children that were there. It was a perfect day to be on the lake.
