Gone For A Time

 I've been away for a while.  Steve and I really felt that it would be good and fun if the children and I went to our favorite lake place ... Kingsland, Texas.  This is my pop and granny's home.  My parents have it now since my grandparents have passed away.  It is like another home to me.  I have spent so much time in this little trailer.

 While Steve did a lot of work on the home front, the children and I enjoyed some fun school time;

 and play time with our Texas family - yes, that's my brother, Kim running a touch down with Keshawn as his ball....LOL.

 Jace and Karlie got to come for a while, and it was so wonderful to see them.  I already miss them!!

Of course, what is a lake with out a boat, and thanks to Dandy, Gommy, Kim and Karla, we had some great boat play time.  That is a dog to the left of this picture.  He is precious and belongs to my nephew, Scott.  

 No words needed for this.

 Bible time in the trailer.

 A spring scavenger hunt.

 Hiking while it was 97 degrees, and the children all said "We knew that sooner or later you would take us hiking."  What can I say, I love to explore.

 Karla got to spend a few extra days with us!  It was so wonderful to have her with us.

We were gone almost three weeks and it was such a perfect time of rest and reconnection with my children.  We swam every day, even the cool, cloudy days (hey, we're from Colorado).  Steve got a lot done at home.  And it is good to be home, but I am thankful for the break that we had!


  1. I'm so glad that you had this time with your children. Looks like fun!

  2. What a wonderful family time!! I love all the pictures!! I have been thinking about you and missing your posts.

    So happy that you shared on your blog!


  3. Welcome back! I wondered where you were. :-) Me, I haven't blogged in months, but when somebody else doesn't blog, I start to worry!

    Happy to see you had such a delightful time. Your parents are "quite the troopers," as my mom would say, welcoming home so many grandkids in such a small space. Makes for fun memories!

  4. You don't have any idea who I am, but I found your blog a while back through another adoption family blog and have been a fan ever since. I have missed you so! I have five adopted teens (15, 15, 17, 17 & 18), we home-school three, one is in day treatment 9am-3pm and the other is in public high school at her request. I follow your blogs and so wish we didn't live on the other side of the US so that we could connect at some point. Your blog and family blesses me each time I open it and read. May God continue to bless you on your journey of parenting and living for Him! Ginger AKA iadopted5

  5. How fun to take a much needed break like this. I especially loved the photo of your feet. You're right; no words needed.
