I'm a redeemed child of God and the momma to four vivacious daughters. I'm passionate about finding hidden blessings in the trials of life, living it out in an honest and open way, while encouraging those around me to believe in better.


my adventurous girls

I know, I know … and I can hear you saying, “you’ve told us a million times … yes, we know … your girls are adventurous!”  But indulge me a moment, won’t cha?

On our recent stay in Exuma, the girls did a lot of snorkeling.  A. lot!  They’ve even worked their way up to using fins!

When I was a kid, I was afraid of what was on the other side of our 24 foot pool{and let’s not even discuss what was lurking under the cover that wasn’t pulled all the way off}!  But these girls … they jump into, and swim off into an ocean with no fear!

This trip Huntie was brave enough to give it a try too!  LOVE the yellow fins!!  She climbed into the water into CJ’s arms and stayed there for a cruise around the boat.   In fact, she came back into the boat with dry hair.  But as they went out time and time again … she got braver and finally started looking under.  Don’t get me wrong … she’s turning into an amazing swimmer … but maybe she’s got a little bit of mom in her and is a little apprehensive of that great big ocean!

And yep!  You’re seeing clearly … that’s a real lobster the girls are holding!  Caught right in the Bahamian waters of Exuma.  And my girls gave it some love … right before we had it for dinner! =)

And lastly … a new science experiment!  Drinking club soda through a flower …

Praying your life adventures are always good!
