Vacation at our Iowa Resort

We are having a great time, relaxing and being lazy, doing fun things! We've eaten all the ice cream and the whipped cream, and we are working on the chocolate sauce. We've watched plenty of movies and jumped on the trampoline. We did get some sewing done, and yesterday we went into Omaha to volunteer at our Church library. We labeled about 50 books with the Dewey decimal system, and there are about 250 books left, or more. We learned the Dewey decimal system real well, though.

Our hosts' chickens are surviving under our care, though we were too scared to force the sitting hens off their nests to get at the eggs, so now there is a little chicky added to the brood, with maybe more to come. Won't our hosts be surprised when they get back!
Today, our last day of freedom, we are planning to go(if tornados don't stop us) see "Prince Caspian" and do some grocery shopping. Tomorrow and Saturday we will be at conferences all day and we will have to clean house Saturday morning before we leave. Then it's back to real life and responsibility on Sunday. Not that we didn't have responsibility here, just way less than at home. I think living alone long-term could make a person very self-centered, because there's no one to take care of but yourself!

Haha! Vacations are fun, especially when they're not all play and no work. :)
