flash back to our trip


We really did have a good time on our trip to visit Chuck's side of the family. It was fun to explore their world and see their friends and reconnect with family. One day we drove to visit Chuck's grandfather's home and all his family that was in the area. Since we don't get to very many family reunions, it was extra special.

Of course the girls had a great time playing with cousins and climbing in the tree house. I sure love that area of upstate. So beautiful and scenic. I could sit outside and stare at the garden and listen to the birds all afternoon. I still think we will end up back in the country someday. Maybe when we are old and gray and our kids come to visit us with all the grandchildren.

We have been blessed with loving and supportive family. This trip reminded me of how I am so grateful for Chuck's side of the family. I just love to see how they are so proud of him and who he is. They have been very supportive and encouraging. We are so blessed.

What a nice family picture. The girls look so grown up and tall. And you and Chuck look great too.

I agree. You all look great! The pictures are beautiful. You are indeed blessed. Looking forward to see who God places in your family.

Great pictures. I especially love the one of you and Chuck. I don't think I had seen a close up of you two before and it was neat to be able to really see how much your girls look like you.

Hi Cris,

It was so nice to meet you all the other night at CC. We already feel so blessed to have such a network of people around us already. In one of your postings, you talked about doing a Bible study with your girls. What a great idea! My girls are younger (6&4). When did you first start doing the more formal studies with them?

Looking forward to seeing you all at our next CC meeting.

Hi Cris,

It was so nice to meet you both the other night at CC. We feel so blessed to already have such a great support network underway.

In 1 of your posts, you talked about doing a Bible study with your girls. What a great idea! At what age did you start doing a more formal study with them? (my girls are 6 & 4.)

We look forward to seeing you all at the next CC meeting.
