Sailing

Last Sunday, Zach, Allie and I went to "Mr. Bill's house" on Lake Wylie. Bill is a co-worker of mine and truly one of a kind. We are so lucky to have him on our team at FHC.

We had planned to just fish from the dock and swim in the lake, but our day turned into a sailing adventure!


(Thanks Andrew for letting us use your boat and Mr. Bill for teaching us how to sail!)

The captain! (We actually all took turns steering, even Al!)
We could not have done this without you Bill! Thank you for being such a good teacher!

We actually had a great day for sailing! Lots of unexpected wind that carried us all over the lake. We also had some unexpected rain, but it cooled us and the day off so sailing after the sun shower was perfect. Thank you Jesus for such a fun and special day with our family!

After our sailing adventure, we headed back to Bill's house and got to see Rosie, Bill's cockatiel. If you remember, we borrowed Rosie for Allie's 11th birthday party last November and she remembered us! She couldn't stop talking to Zach!

I can't wait to take Allie back to Bill's house when she is here in September. There's so many fun things to do!
