Over the 4th of July holiday weekend, we rented a cabin near the Lexington, VA area for two nights. It was about a 3.5 hour drive from where we live. We were joined by Robbie, Naomi, Naomi’s sister Priscilla, and Sarah. Overall it was a very relaxing trip. Our cabin was roomy, had enough beds for everyone, had A/C, and satellite TV (which came in handy because we had zero phone reception or wifi). It felt secluded and peaceful. The weather was wonderful too. It didn’t have an outdoor grill or fire pit so we brought a little one so we could grill hamburgers and steaks, but also to roast some marshmallows!
Day 2 – Monday was our only full day at the cabin, but we made the most of it! Damien and I are the early risers so here’s a video of a very happy Damien singing a song for me 🙂
Day 3 – The 4th of July! We all woke up and loaded up for the return trip home. We considered driving 30 min to see some caverns, but ultimately everyone was pretty tired and ready to get home.
I’m very happy with the whole trip. Damien was well behaved and enjoyed running around outside and fishing. I see there are tons of cabins all over the state so maybe next year we can try one in a different area to scope out the different sites.
I’m a little late, but here are some pictures from the beginning of June.
The school year ended on a very positive note. I loved his first grade teacher because she worked with Damien to help him succeed which I know requires patience and understanding. And since I didn’t get approved for the Minot assignment, we’ll be going to the same school for second grade. This summer I’ll be having Damien work on his reading, spelling, and handwriting since those are his weaker subjects. Scott and I bought him a couple more Minecraft books to get him excited which is working out so far.
