Just thought I’d pop in for a minute! Our escape has been so wonderful and I am so thankful for the time that we’ve had together as a family. I took this picture a couple hours ago from the deck of the house that we will live in this summer. We are staying here this weekend and I am so excited about the memories we will make this summer and I’m hopeful that they won’t involve children falling off the dock or sting rays! I don’t know if you can see Justin, Morgan and Rover on the dock… it dwarfs them, doesn’t it? I can’t be for sure, but the dock may be bigger than the house. They were setting a crab trap and maybe, just maybe, tomorrow morning I can report on a successful trapping a few tasty little blue crabs. The kids are all tucked in to what will be their bedrooms this summer and they are absolutely on cloud nine. I look forward to bringing y’all with us this summer and I also look forward to a high-speed internet connection so I can upload the rest of my pictures from this past week to share with y’all!
I also wanted to say ‘thank you’ for your support of Big House and the swimsuit drive for Alabama’s foster children. If you are interested in helping but haven’t yet… Old Navy is having a flash sale for 4 hours tomorrow (Saturday) from 7am to 11am! All swimsuits will be 60% off! This would be a perfect opportunity to support these precious foster children!
And… thank you, also for all the book recommendations! My goodness you all sure had a lot of books for me, we must be kindred spirits because a lot of what you recommended I’ve already read… and loved! I ended up loading the first of the Hunger Games books… and I must say, it’s a page turner but not like anything I’ve ever read before! Earlier this week, I was sitting outside on the deck reading, the wind was blowing when all of the sudden a door slammed behind me and I nearly jumped out of my chair… Katniss was high in a tree, and I thought for sure the slamming door was her falling out! I’m not sure I won’t have to be on blood pressure medication before I finish this first book!
