Living along the bank of the Grand River on Abrigador Trail, we are now official river rats--meaning that we live in a floodplain. But the term means more than that since my initials spell rat--and the reflections are ones both in my mind and on the water.

We went hiking with Carlton and Kayla Sunday afternoon at Seidman County Park along Honey Creek. Had a long talk with Kayla. What a mature 15-year old she is! She's very concerned about issues of poverty and justice and world affairs and gets stressed out over such things. She's been involved in a Model United Nations program that has taken her to the University of Michigan and Hope College and given her experience in debate and international negotiations. She's like me-----doesn't like to work in groups. In her case, the group entirely slacked off and she was left with all the work and embarrassment by their poor presentations. She's learning what life is all about.
