Summer vacation takes on a whole new meaning

when you spend 28 total hours

in a car

with five kids.

Our destination: 1000 Islands

It’s ohhh so grand to be home.

  • Taking a little scavenger hunt hike with Blaise and Emerson. We hunted for all the colors of the rainbow.
  • Watching the uncontrollable smiles on my kids as the tubed on the water.
  • Being surrounded by God’s glorious beauty.copyright-2009-km-1211s

I am reminded during the good times and the difficult moments…

“Always be joyful. Keep on praying. No matter what happens, always be thankful, for this God’s will for you and who belong to Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
