Aug 09 -Heaven on Earth 3

One of the things that is wonderful about being at the lake is the kids that are around. You know how sometimes kids bring home someone and you think "I hope this blows over quickly"
The kids around the lake are not like that. They are all wonderful and the type of kids that you hope your kids are friends with.
There was another little fellow that showed up this summer. There were a fair amount of ducks around and then there was this one little guy. All the other ducks were larger so we are not sure why exactly this guy was smaller and less developed, or why he seemed to be all alone. He spent time on the docks and I saw people from several other cottages feed just him and shoo the other larger, more aggressive ducks away.
One of the neighbour girls had this funny fellow. Simon thought that it was so hilarious! He would look at him and say "Why the long face?" and then burst into peals of laughter.
Here is the crew making funny faces on the last night for the kids in the cottage to the right of ours.
Skiff lake... Heaven on Earth.

heaven on earth for sure.
it is these moments that your children will recall forever, and reach for when they need comfort and balance.
there is nothing that compares to summers on the lake..

Funny looking long faces. Ah... to be a kid again, if only for a week at the lake. It reminds me of when I was young and without a care. I would spend the whole day down the brook with my friends, swimming in the deep end only coming home when my stomach was growling for food.
