Time for a Little R&R

Alpha Delta Pi's Leadership Seminar in Atlanta, GA was a great experience!  I love attending summer conferences because the programing allows sisters from various locations to interact, learn, and bond.  This conference was especially important to me because I finally had the opportunity to meet the consultant sisters I will be working with this year!  We look forward to visiting a chapter near you!
Over this 4th of July holiday I was lucky enough to spend time with my family at the lake.  There were many boaters out during the day so we decided to act as the audience rather than the stars of the show.  After boaters dispersed, I decided it was my turn to ski.  “Alright mom, let’s see if I can still do this” I said.  I haven’t skied since last summer and the first run of the season is always a tossup (luckily I have always come out on the winning end, getting up on my first attempt, to date).  My dad always chooses to ski this week.  His birthday is July 1st and he always skies shortly after his so he can proudly proclaim “I skied when I was 55” for example.  This may or may not be the only week he skies, but it counts in my book.  Maybe one day I can beat his record. 
            As the sun set over the lake and darkness crept in, we gathered on the pontoon (can’t think of this word without singing Little Big Town’s, Pontoon) and awaited the fireworks show.  The moon suspended over the lake, red, green and white lights bobbed in synchrony with the motion of the water and fireworks illuminated both the sky and the surface of the water.  It was a great way to spend the holiday week!  I hope yours was great as well!
