The ~PARK~



Ryan and I took the little boys to the park the other day....It was so much fun! Why do I not do this type of thing more often? Joshua instantly made friends with some kids who were busy building sand castles...and Josiah just ran here and there trying to figure out what he could climb on all by himself! We only stayed for maybe 25 minutes, but the boys had a blast! Sometimes you get so wrapped up in the everyday business of life, that you forget to just "ENJOY" what God has given you! In this case, it is my children! As school time approaches, I am truly thankful for the summer break that I had with my kids! Not to mention, the "wake up and smell the coffee" reminder.....(drum roll please) that just because school is going to start and I am going to be so busy, well, it does not mean that I can not stop and smell the roses!
