Sunday Snapshot - a fun tradition

They were a bit tentative at first about getting into the water.
They hadn't been in a pool since last Summer.

Pool - G & W
But once they got in, my littlest fish took to the water.

Pool - Will

As did his sister.

Pool - Grace

For 4 years we've made it our little tradition
to have a get away from the dreary days and cold of Feb. or March
 We meet halfway between Madison and Chicago with
members of our China travel group. Some years it's a bigger group.
This year was a small group but no one complained.
In fact there were only smiles and laughter.
And lots and lots of talking and catching up with the momma's!
Friends who truly are family.

Pool - Travel group

(Taken last weekend).

Thank you for the prayers for our family, they're
so appreciated and felt.

I remember your trip last year...... what a fun thing to do with your friends!!!

That first dip in the pool after a whole year is always a little daunting, but it looks like they warmed up to it quickly!! Such sweet smiles!

Thinking of you and hoping that Dan had a great interview.

Enjoy your Sunday.

These are perfect Gail! Looks like you and the kids had a fabulous time. Wish we had a group like that to meet with each year.

We made it back from our sleepover in one piece. I think I slept for possibly 20 minutes the entire night. It was really hard driving home. Nat fell asleep for two hrs. I basically walked in the door, ate a couple of bites, took a quick shower and then passed out by 8pm. Didn't wake until 7:30 this morning. I must say I would do it all over again to see the smiles on the girls faces. :-)

Still sending Dan lots of prayers. Lets talk this week.
