Crazy hair week with mohawks, bleach and blue dyes the Johnson tribe is looking a tad bit different. But otherwise nothing else has changed much. We’re gearing up for more volunteering in the next week with pre-schools, and then the week after Father’s Day the farm will be open 7 days a week (10am-4pm if you are planning to stop by).
We continue to stay at my friend Shelley’s place and our families get involved a bit in each other’s activities, learning from each other and… not surprisingly, getting in each others bubbles. Relationships are difficult, and I appreciate and admire how much energy Shelley puts in working on them. I have much to learn from her…maybe that’s one reason we are here?
We try and see Layne each week on her day off but sometimes we have a conflict of schedules. But it was important for me (and the kids were curious) to check out where she was living, not to be nosey but to have a sense of what it was like, and be able to have an image of what she was talking about when we are afar. So a visit to her abode was quick and to the point…maybe I can go back sometime without the rest of the family and we could hang out there more. But for now, the quick tour fit the bill.
