I have been married for 40 years, to my best friend. We have two beautiful children and two cats, Sam cat who is 18 and Bessie who is 5. Moved to Montana in 1974 from New Jersey and have never looked back. I am newly retired from working at an Alternative High School and I am going to miss the staff and students so much, but I am ready for the next chapter! I use my blog as a secondary journal, to keep a record of the events in my life.
Oooo, what a chair, if I could have one chair, this would be it!

Going to the Lake
It was a tradition in our family to visit Seeley Lake each summer. Sometimes camping, sometimes just for a day of swimming. But the girls got older, life got busy and we tended to fill the weekends with other events. Hubby and I drove up one weekend and while gazing at this beautiful lake, we reminisced about the good times we had had. He could tell I was getting a bit melancholy and smart man that he is, he suggested that we should see if the girls were free and plan a Saturday at the Lake. I couldn't even wait to get home and texted the girls to see if they were game. Replies came in shortly with a resounding ~ YES!! Plans were made; snacks, water toys, towels, sunscreen, chairs, Subway sandwiches and beverages. The day was perfect, hot and sunny and the lake pleasantly cool. We spent 6 glorious hours paddling about the lake, talking and laughing and just being together. And I swear I have a permanent ring around my bottom from just plunking myself into the inner tube and floating in the sun. It was hard to leave as the sun dipped below the pines, but the fun was not over. We had to stop at Pop's Drive-In for milkshakes for the drive home. We have promised each other to claim one weekend next summer for our Lake day. Another tradition re-established! Always, Kit
