It’s the Next Big Thing

So right now pickle ball is all the rage in the retirement snowbird communities. Benaiah is inventing the next big thing.  It’s a combination of golf and tennis played on a pickle ball court. Name is still in the works.

Hawks Cay Dolphin Connection

This is what you call hands on learning.  We can not recommend the Dolphins Connecton more. Great experience with the dolphins and the trainers seem very knowledgeable.  It was a highlight for all the kids and the younger ones can’t wait until they are older so they can get in the water with the dolphins.

Youngest Snowbird

When we head to Florida for a month in the winter we usually end up staying in retirement communities that also welcome families. I love that the kids are quite comfortable and actually prefer to stay in these places.  This little one was told she was the youngest snowbird at the resort on Marathon Key.

May We Never Forget……

Teaching history to our children is so important and while traveling we try to find opportunities of new experiences to solidify what we’ve read in books.  Josh and I had been to the Miami Holocaust memorial years ago and have wanted to take the kids. It is beautiful and every detail has symbolic meaning. Some Read More…

Fall Ministry Trip: Bridges of Faith

I don’t know how I came to know about Bridges of Faith.  I had followed their Facebook page at some point. When I saw that the new gym they had been working on was destroyed by a hurricane and we were planning on heading down to Alabama the following month it sounded like a great Read More…

On the Road Again

We made it out!  We are excited to see what the Lord has for us in these next few weeks.  Today we have been driving for 11 hours so far and have 4 hours left.   We did not get on the road like our usual 3am departure time so we are arriving later than Read More…

Musing

On the drive down (and as it turned out, most of the trip), couldn’t help but think of this Psalm, musing on the work of His hands: I remember the days of old; I meditate on all Your works; I muse on the work of Your hands. Psalm 143:5        

Overcoming Fear

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7 So this is our final night.  Tomorrow, Lord willing, we will be tucked into our beds at our house with hopefully much of the unpacking done.  Today while driving Josh commented Read More…

Trip Update

So I had every intention of updating the blog at every stop.  But the internet has been quite the obstacle and after fighting it for so long I decide that I’d rather go to sleep!  So when we get back we have posts and pictures but I guess they’ll just have to wait.  I even Read More…

He Chose the Thorns!

Our first stop on the trip out was Oklahoma City for an over night at Twin Founatins RV Park.  Great park if you’re passing through Oklahoma City!  A bit of road noise, but a very clean and well maintained park. We picked up a round of 18 at their onsite mini golf course.  Quite a Read More…
