Celebrating Jack's 14rth birthday!

He had a really fun day at an obstacle ropes and zip line course with two friends.  It was such a perfect way to celebrate with a teenager.  Then we went out for pizza.  With family, we had a big breakfast and night out for burgers with grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.  I hope this amazing boy knows how much we all love him and what a gift from God he is!

Art hallway=happy place

This is our new hall art gallery.  I am in love!  I treasure the kids' artwork, especially the art made together from our homeschooling days.  This hallway is one of my happy places in our house now!  I know it looks home-made and it's full of imperfections, but it's like family history and good memories displayed in front of my eyes every day.  Happy!

Our weekend at the lodge

Our night away was close to perfect.  I enjoyed the gardens, good books, and my camera.  And Andy loved his time on the water.  And in between, it was just us.  What a fabulous, quiet, beautiful time away!
