Swimming Holes -- posted by John

Here are 60 or so pictures from our trip to Sliding Rock in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Sliding Rock is a 60 foot waterfall slide that drops into a deep pool. We also went to Looking Glass Falls but we left the camera in the van so I'm posting a video from online.

We dream of going camping for a week or so and hitting all the swimming holes up there. It was so much fun, and man were we sore the next day!

Contra Dancing -- posted by Mom

We had heard of contra dancing, but none of the kids had been particularly interested in it until last weekend.  A friend convinced Will to round up the older kids and they went Saturday night.  To my surprise (and theirs), they had a blast!  They were out until the wee hours with all these people they met.  Oddly enough, the next morning we were visiting a church and many of the people they were hanging out with the night before attend that very church!  They didn't miss seeing each other since they were all dragging into the late 11am service.  Haha.
