Our quick day trip to the beaches of Florida was a long day, but worth it. Pancakes at Sugar Mill State Park, followed by a quick dip in a spring fed natural pool, then east to New Smyrna Beach for a day lounging a doing a lot of nothing...
A week after returning home from Disney, I am still in shock and humbled how amazing the trip was.
Boo and Pops stepped up their game to a new level and made this family trip a true once in a lifetime experience.
From the Disney parks, to the resort we stayed at, to the day trip to the beach, to just being together for the week...it was incredible. From a parental stand point, I know my kids don't comprehend what they were able to experience, but someday they will be able to look back and smile at the week we had together.
Funny how people's paths cross when decisions are made in life.
When Robyn and I decided to host Mark for the summer, I was completely unaware about how many different organizations do similar programs in and around Frederick.
The church we typically attend (not the one that the ABRO program with Mark is connected too) found out about what we were doing and also learned that a few other families within the congregation were doing similar programs for the summer.
One of the elders, with whom I had know but never really had a chance to connect with, invited all the families over to swim, cook-out, and enjoy each other's company and fellowship.
Though each family has it separate struggles and challenges, it's always nice to connect with someone that is going through some of the same experiences you are.
