My heart couldn’t be more full as I look at these pics. It’s kind of like looking at a sleeping child… your heart just fills up and all the frustrations of the day just fade away and don’t matter anymore. We have had such a great summer so far… it’s been so full of time spent together and I can’t help but feel so blessed. We have done tons of day trips, the outdoor options here are endless and we’ve been taking full advantage! Ocean, hikes, parks, lakes… you name it. I’ve seen the kids enjoy God’s creation, enjoy each other and build stronger relationships in the meantime. Oh, don’t worry, it’s not all picture perfect by any means – we have our moments and days of fighting, frustration and grumpiness (kids and me) – but looking at things as a whole I can see God’s hand working through all of that for our benefit. It’s been a different summer with our main man gone evenings and Saturdays to reserve police academy… so it’s the 5 of us all day and some nights, 6 days a week. I wondered at the beginning of this how I’d survive… but now summer is half over already and we’re just fine.
I know in years to come, I will look back at this summer with true fondness, and good memories. I’m enjoying the ages the kids are at so much, it’s hard not to feel sad about the fact they’re growing up so fast. But, that’s how life goes, and I need to learn to accept that we are all just going to keep getting older. :)
