We have had such a fun summer together and are sad to see it ending. We took the kids to the local water park as one big last hurrah before school starts up again. It was crowded and hot but man did we have fun. Then this weekend we checked off school clothes, school supplies, and back to school haircuts and the kids are looking fresh and excited to see their friends and teachers again. I would have to say, as Mom, my personal favorite thing this summer was that we were finally able to get a table big enough to fit all of us and still have some room to grow. There is just something so special about sitting down together over dinner and strengthening those bonds of love that tie us together. We sure do love our little family and are grateful everyday that God has brought us together.
