Such good students!
Then Abby & Bree took turns running down the hill and having daddy catch them just before they fell. He would swing them high in the air and they would scream in delight.
Then it was off to see the "moos" accross the street. There are two calves that the girls are dying to get their hands on but mean ol' daddy won't let them in the fence.

My answer: We would go camping at White Horse Lake. We didn't go very often so it was a special treat for all of us to go camping together. Another reason it was special was because my parents seemed to chill a bit and my brother and I got to fish from sun up to sun down if we wanted. Mom would always make blueberry pancakes over the campfire too, so yummy!
Now it is your turn. Leave your answer in the Comments Section below.

This week we are in the book of Esther. It is one of my favorite books because it is so much like the Christian novels that I love to devour. Drama, power, romance, intrigue-this is the stuff of which best-selling noves are made right? But Esther is a true story! I admire Ether’s character and her courage but I can also relate to her life (well sort-of).
God has a purpose for the situations in which He places us. He has placed each of us in our present situation to serve Him. That is exactly why God placed adoption on our hearts… to serve Him. God was working behind the scenes throughout our entire journey. Like Esther it involved risking our security but it also taught us a great lesson. We had to be willing to let God be our ultimate security. Serving God often demands that we risk our own security to serve others with care and concern. Are you willing to let God be your ultimate security? Trust Him, He will bless you beyond measure.
I would like to encourage you to read or re-read the book of Esther. Maybe even enjoy a great movie this week called One Night With the King. I loved what Steven Isaac said in his review for Plugged In Online. ‘“For such a time as this," Mordecai tells Esther. And in both small and big ways, the same applies to those today who love God and are called according to His purpose. That's powerful, encouraging, spiritually beautiful stuff. And it's great to see it on the big screen.’

Abby & Bree love to make us smile. I bought each of the girls a pair of goggles for the bathtub because they hate getting water in their eyes when I wash their hair. We decided to try them on the girls so the could get used to wearing them. They thought the goggles were pretty fun and mommy and daddy got some good belly laughs. They are such a joy!
