We stay so busy around here with the children, farm and gardens. There always seems to be pressing things that need to be done and attended to. I never seem to actually have a time in my life that I can sit back and say…wow. Everything is caught up and done!
The kids work so hard all the time. They home school and do therapy sessions year round so we don’t lose ground. They also all work daily here on the farm caring for all their animals. Although it is work, it is also a fun and happy life. But…… sometimes we just need to save up some money for an extra fun day to get away. We try to take the kids, that want to go, to Lake Winnie once a year if we can. We try to go early in the summer before the intense Georgia heat and humidity hit for the summer. This week was the week we chose.
Antonio and Zeke do not like to go to Lake Winnie. So it is just much better for them and easier, if Tim and I divide and conquer on this day. My dad helps me take the kids to Lake Winnie and Tim plans an extra special day out and about in our own town for the boys. Even though Tim and his crew had a great day I have no pictures to share of it as Tim forgot to take any! :( Sigh! He is a great and wonderful hubby and dad but would make a terrible blogger. As everyone always love pictures!
Here is our day out at Lake Winnie. William brought “J” his best friend with him for the day! They have been best buddies for many years, since they were both very young, having regular play days together to play legos, board games and swim. The above picture from left to right is Carolyn, "J", William and Elizabeth!
Above...William and "J" on the sad frogs. Below Carolyn and Elizabeth on them.
They rode so many rides and had such great fun....here are just some random shots of the rest of the day!
I praise God for all He does for us. For His mercy and grace. For my family and that there are days like these when we can get away from it all and make happy family memories.
But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee. For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
