Sisters are such a gift from the LORD. Kati, I treasure our late night talks (feasts), being mermaids on the bottom of the pool, dreaming of being missionaries and changing the world for Christ, and late night baseball games covered in sweat and dirt. I am so excited to be an Aunty again! I can’t wait to come visit you!!! 😘😘😘
Thank you @govinslee

It’s not like summit lake is hard to find, but it’s slightly off the main trail. After poking around for a few minutes, we walked down the shore a bit to sit and stare at the lake. Fish were jumping and the sun was out. We heard the crowds walk by, but two voices carried closer and closer. We stayed put. The louder exclaimed amazement at the abundance of life in the lake. Within minutes, his volume dropped, but he was still poking around in wonder. At that point we stood up and walked back towards the trail. He didn’t even notice us.
