Just Because

My baby is no longer a baby!  So thankful to have her in our family.

Camping...another trip!

We had such a privilege to help plan and organize a camping trip with 5 other families from church.

It.  Was.  Wonderful!

Each family planned and prepared just one meal all weekend, talk about easy!  Friday night we all arrived around 5 and set up camp.  We had reserved two spots at the Beaver Dam Lake Campground.  Daniel and I have camped in this particular campground a couple of times before so we knew it could hold a ton of adults and kids.  We were right next to the playground and several yards from the water.  The kids had so much fun on the merry-go-round.  Most of them have never even seen a merry-go-round!  I think those are now prohibited from most playgrounds, but nobody told the US Army Corps (who run this campground).  I loved spending time and visiting with a couple of the families I didn't know all that well except in passing at church.  What a fabulous time to get to know each other and see their true personalities.  I was impressed!  Because, let's face it, your true colors shine when you sleep outside two nights in a row with approximately 15 kids running around.  I felt so encouraged and refreshed hanging out with everyone and watching each family interact with one another.  I hope everyone wants to do this trip again, because I sure do!  And, in the future, maybe we can add many more families from church.  It was a blast!
Sweet Sawyer!

Go Mommy!

SJ likes to have her privacy when she goes to the bathroom. Don't we all. This little command to me makes me smile every time!

PB&J, anyone?

I walked in the dining room the other day to find SJ making her own snack.  She got the bread and peanut butter out of the cabinet all by herself.  I guess she was hungry...
