We celebrated Labor Day Weekend by hitting up a few local spots in the area which included an alligator farm. We saw more alligators in 30 minutes here than we did in the 3 years we spent in Florida! The kids had the opportunity to hold a snake and a baby gator....Nate and Laura passed on those "experiences."
After not seeing her for almost two years, Laura was able to travel to Virginia to spend the weekend with her grandmother. It was so, so good to be with her! Laura was also able to see aunts, uncles, and cousins who live there as well. Hopefully, we will all be able to see family there in the coming year, the kids haven't been north since we lived in Costa Rica over three years ago!
No, we didn't get a dog....Abbi "dog-sat" a couple of weekends last month and we all had a blast playing and cuddling them.
We took the kids to their first-ever county fair last weekend - we all had a blast! The best part was the rodeo....the opening ceremony was awesome! The announcer took the time to honor those in the military, public service, medical field, and teachers! He then proceeded to pray before the rodeo officially began. It was so refreshing to be in a public setting where people were honored, but most importantly, where the Lord was honored.
The girls had "Spirit Week" at school this week. The first day was "Disney Day." Another day was "dress up as something that begins with the first initial of your name." So, Reagan chose "rabbit." Abbi opted out of participating that day, but Laura had tons of ideas for her as you can imagine. We went to the town parade last night, the football game is tonight, and the Homecoming dance is tomorrow. We are embracing this small-town life!
Thank you so much for your faithful, continued prayers, and support for our family. We love and appreciate all of you so much!
