A different adventure-rock climbing!

This weekend Gregs son and his girlfriend came home, and we went rock climbing at a local climbing wall gym! It took me almost an hour and a half to get so that I wasn’t scared and actually climbed to the top of these climbing walls, and was able to free fall down to the bottom!

Greg took a video of my last climb and I uploaded it to YouTube, and here is the link! Enjoy!

Christmas in Texas

We were blessed to be able to spend some Christmas time with 3 of our kids and their families last week in San Antonio, Texas. Weather was very pleasant, better than in Minnesota (had -50F with windchill on Saturday!), while we enjoyed 75 degrees the same day! We enjoyed some shopping in the quaint town on Gruen, TX one day. Seems many of the towns in that area have German names…hhmmm…probably settled by Germans!

I am so glad we had this opportunity. This coming weekend and the next will complete Christmas with the rest of the family before we head south into warmer weather.

While we were there, Clint made some adhesive stickers with the name and logo of Aquataurus! I put one on my iPad and it looks pretty darn good! Good job Clint!

Being a “mommy” again…

I’ve been babysitting the grandkids at their home, while my daughter, Sheena, and her husband are traveling for his work. I am a “mommy” again, and am loving it! Tessa is 9 years old and Kendra is 6. It has been a lot of fun. Tessa has been such a good helper, and Kendra, well, she can be a little stinker. But we have a good routine each morning before school. Then I get (paid) work done during the day. After school, I pick them up at after school care. They come home, go out to play if its nice out, then I get dinner ready, we eat, then homework time. Last night, we tried doing some Yoga, but Kendra was just too crazy. I think it was the Reese’s cup she had as a treat after dinner!!! But Tessa is really interested in this and after Kendra went to bed, we did a 15 minute meditation to Deva Premal and Miten. She loved it! She’s my girl! I have 2 more days with them. It’s the weekend, so I’m not sure what we will be doing. I’m sure we’ll think of something.
