Schaefer Family Adventures: August 2019

This is Charlotte….the floating rainbow unicorn.

She resides in Vermont at my Grandparent’s home on Lake St. Catherine. She is a lovely addition to a place that is filled with already amazing memories for me. My grandparent’s home, which we call the Camp, is nestled in the Green Mountains of Vermont on a beautiful glacier formed lake in the town of Wells, Vermont. I have visited this place my entire life.

But now we have a bit of a lull and I’m caught up on editing! So I’m combining April and May into one blog post!

For the past four years we have spent each spring break in the beautiful state of New Mexico. Franciscan University of Steubenville sends out around 300 missionaries each year on spring break mission trips all over the world! We have been so blessed to be the advisors for New Mexico Mission for 4 years now. The mission team serves in Gallup, NM and we work with the local Catholic schools, the Missionaries of Charity and the Little Sisters of the Poor.
