For now, I'm still reflecting. So much of the summer months I didn't post. Life was just too busy. I do like recording things though as I'm so behind in my scrapbooking that I may never catch up.
One sweet moment in our summer was a quickly planned and put together family vacation. To Wildwood. To visit Christopher! We headed out in the morning and stopped at a rest area for a picnic lunch.
No matter the differences, it was just perfect.
Just having fun.
(Did I mention that Christopher has great friends who were tons of fun to hang out with and everyone loved playing with them!) And Lia was a really good sport about all of this!
Christopher spent the summer learning more about Treasuring Jesus.
And how to share his faith. How to live and have an impact on the world.
We wanted to see where Christopher was working and so we headed down the boardwalk to Morey's Piers one morning.
Christopher took days off of work while we were there so we didn't see him working and instead just got to hang out with him. We were able to see some of his friends working there though.
Another afternoon at the beach. Can you ever spend too much time on the beach? It is hands-down my favorite place to go with family. Its just easy and fun for everyone!
After leaving the tower, we went to see the lighthouse. We didn't have much time to spend there as we had a ferry to catch too. We saw an old WW II bunker on the beach! How neat is that? Roger, Daniel and Joshua went to take a closer look. You aren't able to go inside of it unfortunately.
Mostly, I was glad to have time with Christopher. To experience some of what he is experiencing. To meet and spend time with some of his friends. To hang out and love on him. I love you Christopher! I miss having you home, but am so very excited for all of the opportunities that you have for learning and growing and drawing closer to God!
Thankful for time with family. Always thankful for time with family.
