The end of our week was long and hard.  
In the middle of it all, Saturday offered a bit of a respite.

We hit the field bright and early for the first day of flag football - 
Gabe's first year and Luke's second.  
The weather was perfect.  
The peaceful hour - healing.

The first couple of weeks will be skill focused, then they will scrimmage for a couple of weeks, and then play games in the end.  I know it's far away, but in this picture, Luke has the ball (center of the picture) and is running hard.  Gabe's in the back with his hands on his head 
like "Oh no!" or something.  Who knows what he was doing.  
They both did great and had a great time.  
It's going to be a good season.

Afterwards, we headed home, picked up the rest of the crew, and headed out to find the beach.  We're three hours from the coast but only an hour from Chesapeake Bay.  
We kept it simple and went to the bay.

The view is beautiful all on its own, 

but when you sprinkle in a few of these...

it becomes breath-taking.

(I know there's no single picture of bad - but he was there, I promise, and was always off doing his own squirrely thing 
and having a great time).

We stayed until the sun began its descent into the water, 
then cleaned up, got some pizza and headed home.  

A welcomed treat to the end of our week.  Please keep praying.  
These days are hard, but I know God is listening, 
and I know He is working this all together for His good, 
because that's the kind of God He is...

"For I know the plans I have for you, 
declares the LORD, 
plans to prosper you and not to harm you, 
plans to give you hope and a future."
Jeremiah 29:11


  1. Beautiful! So glad you are getting out and enjoying your new home. Still praying for you all!

  2. Now there's a plus, to be able to "hit the beach" just an hour away :) Hopefully it was a small healing moment for all. Continue to pray for you my dear friend!
