Just 2 more days and we'll be back in La Veta and Circle the Wagons. It has been a crazy 5 months. We've been separated from Meeko and Jumper more than we have been with them. We are all anxious to be back home and together. Dale and Buddy will be heading our way soon to help get the park ready for our first group which is coming in on April 24. Our minds are racing about all we have to do. Another friend will be coming out to help with the building of the greenhouse. It is a kit but he has put one up before so he'll know the ins and outs. I can't wait to plant some herbs, tomatoes, broccoli and lettuce.

We have some new things happening this coming year.
       1. Big R in La Veta now has propane available 7 days a week
       2. We are putting up a greenhouse. I thought it would be fun for our seasonals to grow some veggies this summer. 
       3. We will have 2 Quilt Retreats.  May 29-30. Toni Whitney Design class.    October 10-12  Bring a block pattern of your choice to the retreat and we will make a quilt out of everyone's block designs.
      4. My friend Carol Naylor has offered to host some art classes using the technique Batik Watercolor. It is very exciting and everyone can do it, even if you have never painted in your life.  Dates to be announced as we get closer to opening. 
We are opening a week earlier, the weekend of April 24th. If the weather cooperates there shouldn't be an issue, but.....we never know in the spring what will happen in Colorado.
