On October 31st, while most were celebrating Halloween,
we were driving to a beautiful Refuge in the woods.
It was there we enjoyed a small family retreat and celebrated The Reformation.
We learned a lot and had a great time.

Along with the Reformation vignettes and instruction we had plenty of time for fun and relaxation.
I was ping-pong champion all weekend.
OK! OK! My main competition was under 12 years old...still.
Most of the lovely people we spent the weekend with.
The kids divided into teams to answer tough questions about The Reformation.
