fort clinch, the beach, and enjoying the ride

While in Florida we managed to fit in some fun around Jeremiah's work schedule. 
It is Florida, after all...

We visited Fort Clinch on Fernadino Beach. A fortress used during both the Civil and WWII wars, it had lots of winding staircases and dangerous overlooks, so of course it was a hit with my crew.


Nothing like the windblown squinty eye picture to prove we were there...















We also made it to the beach one afternoon. It was a wee bit windy and there was no way I was stepping foot into the water, but that didn't stop the three crazy oldest kids. 

Zoe was much more sensible and ate a pb&j in a chair with me...


Ezra was really (really!) hoping to find some treasure...


She finally was coaxed out of her chair and at least walked to the waters edge.

But the real fun began the moment she discovered she could tame the seagulls by sharing her bread with them.





The kids traveled like the traveling troopers they are. We have learned to enjoy the getting there, instead of being so focused on the end destination. It makes my attitude so much better which in turn makes their attitude so much better. If Momma ain't happy...

We are all happy to be home and settle back into "normal" again. For a week and a half this time and then we head up to Pennsylvania to speak at a church.

Our life and schedule may be crazy at times, but I LOVE what we get to do and wouldn't trade it for the world. Being on mission and being a part of watching churches and individuals get on mission is an amazing life to live and sometimes I'm just overwhelmed with thankfulness for the story we are allowed to be a part of.
