Reasons to put Seabeck on your calendar now
If you’re like me, making commitments for summer many months in advance is hard. But it is easy to have one thing on our family calendar that stays the same every year. The four of us in the McAbee family look forward to going to Seabeck each summer.
As my kids get older, our immediate family spends less time together at Seabeck, but we still have the anticipatory trip over and the satisfied trip back together. In addition, we usually spend some time together in the afternoon and evening. It is wonderful that my kids feel so independent and there are activities for each of us, even as our interests diverge.
In the afternoons, I like to do yoga and try not to miss Womensong with Betsy Rose. I also like the talk-back sessions with the speaker, but often that’s a tough one for me to fit in. Rob goes for a swim in the lagoon. Ian and Aaron also enjoy the lagoon, or meeting up with other youth for a game, or playing Ping Pong in the pavilion.
After the scheduled evening program and a leisurely snack on the field, the kids might play a game of sardines in the dusk, while I check out the puzzle in the Inn. Rob uses the time to catch up on his reading. After a busy day, we all tend to fall asleep pretty quickly!
This summer, we welcome Dr. David Roon, Professor of Ecology and Conservation Biology at the University of Idaho, as we explore Faith, Science, and Environmental Stewardship.
Whether or not you plan to attend Seabeck this year, please join us Sunday, February 23 as Dr. Roon offers a preview presentation after church.
