A Day at Yorktown beach



Hello, Life has gotten much better since the last time I posted. I still spend all my mornings in bed until about lunch time but I am slowly starting to get over this morning sickness! Grandma and Grandpa came up for the weekend and went to church with Daniel on Sunday. We all spent Sunday afternoon at Yorktown beach to watch the boys play in the sand and water. They had a blast! James is walking now and he was so cute waddling around on the beach and then plopping on his fanny. Afterwards we went out for ice cream at the Ben and Jerrys by the York River. Grandpa left early this morning for the 12 hr drive back to Ga and Grandma stayed behind to keep the boys this week and help Daniel with the cooking. It has been like heaven to have her here after trying to manage the house on our own! Daniel is enjoying it the most because he has had delicious dinners that included elk steaks and homemade apple pie! Also his work clothes are clean and ready for him to put on in the morning after sleeping on fresh sheets! I have so enjoyed having the boys home again after having them gone during the day the past few weeks. The boys love having Grandma here. Isaac says Grandma like Gam Ma!
Another wonderful thing that has happened is that Daniel has found a church for us to attend.
It is less than 150 people but it is very family and homeschool friendly. The pastor has 9 kids and there is another family in the church with 10 kids! The pastors children are going to help us out with the boys in the mornings for the next 2 weeks. I am so thankful to have their help! Well, time for me to run. Here are some photos of our day at Yorktown.

Thank you for emailing us about your new post. We love reading your blog but wouldn't know to check otherwise. You're so inspirational!

Just saw your morning sickness entry. A couple thoughts:

Out of ten pregnancies, in only two was I not nauseated. Both those babies went home to heaven before we ever got a chance to know them. :-(

"It's worth everything" gets even better as your children grow into adults! You two will truly have no greater joy than to hear that your children walk in truth (3 John 1:4).

Keep living for the Lord, dear ones! You're blessing more folks than you know.

Love from all of us,
Mary
