Kathrynne, Kaitlynn, and Silas started ice skating lessons last week. None of them have had ice-skating lessons before and the girls have only been ice-skating once before, so it was fun to watch them go and do something new and learn lots of great character in the process (persevering even when you’ve fallen down multiple times, etc.)
Silas is still working on facing his fears :), but they all had a great time and are looking forward to their Saturday classes for the next few weeks.
Kaitlynn and I flew to Naples, Florida, for a retreat with all of the writers of MomLife. FamilyLife paid for the entire trip and put us up in an amazing resort (that’s the view from our resort balcony above!), fed us delicious food, and provided lots of time for us to enjoy the beach in between our planning meetings every day.
Kaitlynn had an blast playing at the beach! She was at the perfect age to really enjoy it!
The weather was gorgeous and the ocean views were breath-taking.
And then we came back to real-life again. 🙂 It’s always so good to be back home again, even if it’s a lot louder and messier than that resort in Naples, Florida was. I want to soak up every minute of the life that God has given me and embrace every part of it–messes and all!
