Row, Row, Row Your Boat

Yesterday was such an awesome day and was completely a "Mom Day." Nine of my teacher friends and I went white water rafting down the Ocoee River. The upper section of the river was used as the canoe venue for the 1996 olympics. We did not use that course, although we sure felt like we did! We rafted the middle section which was exciting enough for a novice like me.

Since there were ten of us, we split up between two boats and it was so much fun to watch our friends go down the rapids from our boat. We had such an amazing guide and boy, did we have a great time! Everyone is our group made it down the river safely and only left the raft to swim and enjoy floating down the river for a bit. If you are in the Tennessee area, OAR was fabulous!

A passenger from another boat did fall out of her raft and our group rescued her! We happened to be stuck on a rock when she went by and we nabbed her. If we wouldn't have been stuck, we wouldn't have been there for her. God sure knows what He's doing!

I did not take any pictures but I stole a few from some friends. :) Thanks Laura and Jennie!

Here's our second boat with our sweet (and very adventurous) friends!

All smiles after an amazing trip!
Thanks, ladies, for such an amazing day! You all make every day a fabulous adventure and I am so blessed to work (and play) with you!
