We made it to Ohio, safe and sound. Thanks to The Backyardigans, our trip was fairly easy.
We've had a great time visiting family. It is so fun to see Evie interacting with her aunts, uncles, cousins, and Grandpa.
The "country life" is so appealing. Evie is a suburban girl, but she loves it here. Tonight, we went for a walk in Aunt Shari and Uncle Luke's backyard. We picked green grapes right from the vine, which Evie HAD to try, and promptly spit out! They also have lots of fruit trees, so we picked baby apples and beautiful miniature pears. All were unripe at this time of year, of course, but the girls ate a few bites anyway. We also discovered a pecan tree, and Daddy cracked the thick green outer hull open with a hatchet!
I have been married for more than 11 years to my fantastic husband, Chris, and we have two beautiful and energetic children. Evie is 5, and full of spunk and sparkle. Ethan is 2, and has taught me about trains and construction vehicles and Buzz Lightyear - and about sweet boy cuddles.
I strive to be gentle and kind - a reflection of the love Christ has shown to us. I don't always live it perfectly, but I am working towards a life of gratitude, joy, and love!
