Sometimes life throws curve balls, and God does some work that only He can do. He separates people. He brings people together. He reunites people. He changes perspectives.
We've certainly enjoyed having our friends back in the "area" (lower Michigan), so we can hang out again. It doesn't happen as much as we'd like, but it's better than nothing. We are thankful for so many friends to live life with, even if it means we don't live day to day with them, but only in encouraging talks once a month or once every couple months.
Josiah and his buddy, Quin
We meet them at Pokagon as it seems to be a good meeting point. This day we checked out the new bee observatory hive. We found the queen and Josiah explained what each bee was doing, what they were called, and about the different cells. This boy sure knows his bee stuff!
There is always football involved in our get togethers.
The girls and their friend, Gabi.
We swapped kids for a couple nights, so we got Gabi and sent Josiah with Quin. The girls had an absolute ball watching old musicals and riding the 4 wheeler.
Diella stopped so Gabi would get wet in the sprinkler.
Diella getting smacked for it. :)
So much laughter.
Checking another thing off the list. Get togethers with friends were at the top of our list. Haven't accomplished all the friends, but I think they are all scheduled at least. We got a room painted, garden harvest done, visits to parks, sleep overs, and some water fun. More to come....
