We went to the Oregon homeschool conference and met some wonderful homeschoolers. In addition to the conference, our entire family met with some close family friends (the Holland's from Oregon) and went to Sunriver for a family getaway.

Here's a photo of our adventures:

Imagine if every few minutes a hundred gallons of ice water is dumped on your six year old daughter who was clinging to a rope at the front of the raft in order not to be tossed into the level 3 rapids, while two dads and four kids under 14 years old fight for your life (well, maybe not your life). It was an adventure. It was all my idea so I'm glad we made it through.

Looks like a lot of fun! Were the little ones scared?

We've wanted to do that but we hadnt found an outfitter that will allow small children. We've been waiting for the youngest to grow...almost there now.

I wish I could have made it to the conference this year! I would have loved to meet you. It looks like you all had a wonderful time while visiting our state.

God bless!

Hey! We live right outside of Sunriver! We were camping that weekend (we always end up camping the weekend of the conference here) and so I had to miss it as always. I was especially bummed because it was the first year I even wanted to go --- and add to that the fact that YOU were there ... well, I REALLY wanted to go!
