Before I forget, I want to share about Pepper’s experience at the Old Sturbridge Village day camp this summer.   Pepper had a wonderful time at this camp.

Posted by mrssmythe on May 25, 2014 in CPT's Lens, Out & About |

We started the weekend with three days of rain in the forecast. And then, (as happens so frequently here), the weather reversed, and today dawned beautifully. So, after church, we piled into the car and drove east to Old Sturbridge Village for “Wool Days”. And then the weather changed (again!), and we found ourselves under a […]
