Our family had an incredible time together at Myrtle Beach, SC in July. We were usually up pretty early and on the beach by 8:30am and played, played, played till lunch. Chad and the older two thought the waves were incredible for boarding while Tate and I stayed closer to the sand. We all spent hours playing UNO, swimming, building castles, knocking them down, eating, and showering off from the beach. This year was the first year I felt like the fellas were at a similar stage so we had more time together and not split up from naps or feedings, and in an odd way, it was a sweet blessing this summer. On the way to see family, we stopped by the USS North Carolina for a tour. It has been a long time since my parents took me there so it was fun to share that we my guys. An they thought the anchor and guns were "Awesome!!"
a Carolina girl by heart, a broken but beautiful vessel in the eyes of her Father, a devoted wife learning to serve her beloved in new ways, a momma to four children; three with us and one waiting in Heaven, and a grateful girl that enjoys everything from writing in a quiet nook to the swirling buzz of life in my home.
