We took off the middle of last week to head to the beach again.
It was a short trip with just my three youngest and myself.
Thanks to my dear friend Kim who invited us to their beach home.
We found these beautiful live conchs while exploring.
This was Adam's second time at the beach this year.
We are really enjoying this summer!
The older girls stayed in the water the whole time.
Sam can usually be found near the snacks!
Notice the sand Adam put on Sam's shoulder just before the picture.
He is such a funny boy and looks quite pleased with himself!
We had a fantastic, laid back time!
We are really loving a break from school and all the doctor appointments. We have been super busy but doing the things we want to do. I have so much to blog about from all the events taking place in our lives. I hope to be caught up before we head off to the beach again!
Prior to recital weekend we took one last road trip to Raleigh. The boys were released from their last exam at 12:00 noon on the 10th. We were waiting in the parking lot ready for the 3 hour trip. We had no time for traffic jams, to stop for lunch or even to go to the restroom. Everyone wore their dress clothes in the car and we had packed a cooler for lunch.
We weren't sure we would make it in time but we did. We saw our niece graduate.
Afterwards we enjoyed dinner at P.F. Chang's. Sarah was toasted by me and her dad.
I must say her Dad's toast had us all in tears.
He talked about his memory of her as a baby and the night he remembered them bonding as he fed her a bottle before bed time. And now she has one foot out the door as she heads off to college. It is so hard to let them go.
I do think going through this with Sarah is preparing me for next year
I have been married to Greg since 1990. We have 5 children and a very full life! We spend our time with friends and family and running our kids to ballet, basketball, football, horseback riding and anything else they dream up. Our oldest is in college but no where near grown. Our favorite things are our faith, orphans ministry, Panthers football, and Make-A -Wish! This blog documents our journey as a family.
