Weekend Away at the Lake

We survived another soccer season. All four kids played, and my hubby coached, but I had baby duty most of the time. We did a lot of walking up and down the sidelines. Needless to say, we were very ready for a break from the practice/game schedule (at least until basketball gets into full swing). My aunt and uncle again generously opened their lake house to my sweetie and me for a weekend this fall. What a blessing to step back from the routine, sit in peace, and plan steps for the future of our family.

God grace abounds and amazes me. Looking back at the ups and downs, good and bad of this past year, makes my heart fill with praise again for our sovereign, merciful, awesome Lord. I love my kids and consider it a privilege to be their mom. I am even more privileged to parent alongside my sweetie.

I took only a few pictures during a brief time away. Here are some of the highlights.

Biblical principles guide us, but this book helps with making the principles work practically.

. . . because we all know that chocolate is good any time.

I actually won this time.

We plugged the iTouch into the Bose and we were set. Great view, great music.

It's a small thing, but I enjoyed having hot water always ready for a cup of tea.

I came home refreshed and ready to continue on this journey called life as a mom.
