Some pictures from our recent vacation.
It was such a great trip in so many ways...
Educationally: Let's LIVE history!
|Jamestown: Recreated town|
|We attended Bruton Parish Church on Sunday and they let the kids ring the bell to call everyone to worship.|
|Governor's gardens at the Governor's mansion in Williamsburg|
|Capitol Building in Williamsburg|
|George Washington answering Tommy's question, "When will you fight?" Washington's answer, "Whenever we have to."|
|Korean War Memorial|
|Tomb of the Unknown Soldier|
|Nate explaining things to the kids at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier - lots of questions about this one!|
|World War 2 Memorial|
Spiritually: Who says our country wasn't founded on Christian principals? It's written everywhere you go!
|Abe Lincoln's second Presidential Speech|
|Same as above|
|At the Jefferson Memorial|
|Jefferson Memorial - I find this rather amusing since Jefferson was the one who wanted separation of church and state.|
And personally (what an awesome responsibility I have of spending each and every day raising these kids to be who God wants them to be!)
Thank you Lord for this trip and for this life!
|4 going on 14. He cracks me up. Every single day.|
|Sweet baby, messes, and curious almost 10 year old|
|This girl LOVES babies. She's a baby who loves to hold babies! Holding her new cousin with Grandma Gi Gi.|
|This is how we roll.|
|These two have a precious relationship.|
We're hanging around the house this week trying to get over a flu bug that just won't leave.
Poor Matthew. He was the first to get it and now has it again three days later.
The baby has also been throwing up at random times.
Thankfully both are sleeping right now.
The others are busy making various messes...
while I read to them.
It's been a slow, quiet sort of day for us.
Praying Matthew and baby get well soon!
