End of Baseball

 We had our baseball party last Sunday.  It was nice(although very hot!).  The boys had a good season and the head coach was really great.  Darryl also got to coach this season.  He loves being there for the boys.

We sold our camper yesterday.  It was so bittersweet...I did start to cry as they drove away and I could see that Darryl was almost in tears as well.  We had so many wonderful memories in that camper.  So many great trips and experiences I'll never forget.  We loved how cozy it was, we loved that we could just all be together in the woods, on a river, or by the sea...We love, love, love being out in nature.  My favorite trips were in the mountains by the river.  We would do nothing all week but swim, fish, eat, campfire and the boys would sometimes watch a movie at night while Darryl and I would sit by the campfire and talk under the was so awesome.
However, we hated the setup and teardown of the's quite a bit of work....
We also haven't used the popup in almost a year...could be because our property looks like a campground and our desire to go camping has greatly diminished since we can just go outside and build a campfire and sit under the stars.  Our property really is quite beautiful and we are blessed...
Darryl assured me if we wanted another camper, we could just buy one(although it would be a travel trailer-we are so done with the setup!)
Bye-bye provided us with so many good memories!
Another chapter closed..can't wait to see what the next chapter brings!

Will be back...

I'll be back soon.  I've had a rough week and a rough weekend so I need a bit to get some posts together about what has been going on.
Praising God for healthy children and a wonderful family.
Praising God for family moving close.
Praising God for twin boys that are such a big help to their mama.
Praising God for a beautiful morning and mild temperatures(that heat wave was horrible).  I had such a pleasant walk down our driveway this morning with baby in a  wrap snuggled close(and not crying-which has been rare these last two days).
