its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

June 28 to July 1 - Graham's Visit

“Promise me you'll remember, you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think.” -Winnie the Pooh 

Graham’s visit actually started off with us spending the weekend in Bloomsburg. We’ve visited Forks Farm Market many times, but this time Graham had a booth to sell some of his artwork. He had a great showing and sold out before lunch. It was so much fun to be there with him.
Graham spent some of his earnings on an arrowhead kit, complete with chipping tool, obsidian, grinding rocks and several pieces of antlers. Graham and his friend had a great time making arrowheads and figuring out what they were going to mount them on. Graham made an arrow and spent time at the boat finding feathers to attach to it and a branch to make a bow. I have to say I was a little skeptical that it would work, but Stan and Graham proved me wrong. They did a great job and he was able to shoot the arrow 20 feet or more. What a great summer project...Camp Marshall was a success.  
The weather was extremely hot the days Graham was on the boat, so we spent a lot of time at Long Point Park swimming in the cool lake. Graham had fun playing in the water, riding his scooter, looking for treasures and playing on the playground. We also spent time in the early morning and late evening riding bikes. Now that he can ride the two wheeler without training wheels we can cover a lot more ground. Each day we rode over three miles. Having the kids spend time on the boat during the summer is a very special time for all of us. Priceless memories. 
We picked raspberries one morning at Indian Creek Farm...they were so sweet.
The best way to spend a warm day is playing in the lake and eating ice cream.
