Summer's ending

                  But not without a protest. 
                Not without exploring.. jumping..

                            searching for shells..
        The beach is relaxing and a great place to recharge. 
                            to discover new things
            to build relationships
A place to let everything stop and focus on the little things for a while. 

      Until next year...I'll miss you

Summer beach days

There's nothing quite like a lazy day at the beach.

Relaxing in the sand; the gulls crying overhead. 

Did I say lazy?
I was just kidding....
With six rowdy boys haha  
It's more like full bore, petal to the metal
Give me some more. it's not gonna stop
Wrestling, tumbling, talking, jumping...
And it's awesome! 
There does come a time when things slow down. 
Things do have to be built before they can be destroyed. (:
Then a great sunset to top it off while listening to the surf. 
Such is the life...

Creation Museum

                    We had such a good time at the Creation Museum. 
                  The boys had a good time learning about how the ark 
                                  was made and fit together. 
                      There were models of the ark, inside and out, 
                              life size and small scale models.
                          They really enjoyed the dinosaurs too! 
             Ps. I love this bridge. I used to have a video   
             on my phone of the boys running across it. 
           Boaz would watch that video over and over.  :)

                             The petting zoo was a big hit. 
            They especially liked seeing the animals that were cross bred,
               such as a zebra and horse, to show that it's very possible 
                that not all of the animals we know took a ride on the ark. 

                    The cow and Zip were buddies! :o

                  It's always fun to feed the animals

                  Here they are, not too little anymore.

Haven of Hope ~ Texas trip

I had a great trip to Texas
I went to the Haven of Hope Retreat
visited some great friends
and made some new ones.
I love driving though Texas
the land, the scenery!! ❤

I was there on Boaz 6th birthday.
We released butterflies
on his birthday!
All of us at the retreat!
It was nice to share
his birthday in that way
with all of the other Moms.

A little basketball

The boys had a great time playing basketball tonight. The jv played first and took a win.
Next was the peewee team. They play 5 on 5 of our little boys, and tonight they had a tie again, 2-2. It's a lot of fun to watch, more like tackle basketball. They're learning the basics though.
Then the varsity played, which was intense. Most of the time the teams were within a few points of each other, but Fury came out with the win! Josiah is getting great on the rebounds!

Need a good book to read? :)

 The best book I've read in a long time! 
Simplicity (for the bible tells me so)
 Coming from a girl who loves to read, 
that says a lot!
If your tired of "Christian" books that all seem to regurgitate the same concepts of how to achieve holiness and righteousness then Simplicity is the book for you! 
Caleb Thompson sheds light on how having a personal relationship with Christ can be the answer
 to what's missing in your Christian life. 
The Bible is not a list of rules and regulations for Christians. 
We don't need an appearance of righteousness, 
we need an intimate relationship with Christ.
As I read Simplicity, hope dawns in my soul! 
I'm not bound by men's philosophies, 
I am freed by the word of God! 
Never more to be chained by the ideas of mortal man...
I choose to live in Christ! 
The more I read this book, the more I want to pick up my Bible and devour this love letter from my Saviour!
