One of the joys of this time of year is looking back on all the blessings God has provided throughout the past year. We were able to go on three trips this year and they standout as times of fun, so I will share them with you.
In late February, we packed up and headed north. First, we drove to Louisville, KY and had dinner with John’s Cousin Richard at his house. The next day, we drove to the Creation Museum in Petersburg, KY. Bobby (10) enjoyed seeing the “Men in White” movie and Sarah (13) really liked the life-sized section of “Noah’s Ark”. We spent the morning there, then drove to Bloomington, IN to spend the weekend visiting with family and going to Matthew and Emily Crum’s wedding. Jeffrey (6) says his favorite memory of that trip was getting to eat a Subway sandwich. John and the children even got to go sledding in the snow – a special treat for children growing up in South Carolina!
In May, we took a day trip to Charleston and went to The Patriot’s Point Museum. Trey (11) especially enjoyed seeing the planes and going on the flight simulator. Before driving home, we went to beach and played in the waves. Rebekah (1) discovered sand doesn’t taste as good as it looks.
In November, we were off to another wedding - Charlie and Katelynn Cahoon's. This one was in Williamsburg, VA. John’s sister-in-law, Sandi, arraigned for us to stay at Wyndham Governor’s Green. It was so luxurious; the children didn’t want to leave. William (7) said that was the best part of the trip, but I think getting to go swimming with his cousins in the resort’s pool was also special. Before the wedding, we were able to walk through part of Colonial Williamsburg. After the wedding, we all had fun dancing at the reception!
When we are not travelling, you can find us most days at home. We might be doing school work or chores or we might be playing in the backyard or watching a movie. Whatever we’re doing, you are welcome to join us. You might want to call first though, or you may catch me in my pj’s!
May your family be blessed this coming year with an ever deepening and an ever awe-inspiring relationship with Our Creator and Savior!
