Captain’s log day 2,141

We stopped by the lake the other night. It has become a favorite thing to do lately in the evenings. The kids get some wiggles out, and we get the peacefulness of watching the sun set. The moon was crescent-shaped, which was interesting to Sylas. He knows all about that already. He truly has an […]
