My Men on Winter Retreat
Every year Jamie takes the big boys up to his parent's cottage at Rumney Bible Conference for a few days of rest and relaxation. I did not get many details out of the guys, except that there was much ice hockey, chess, and food. There were no dirty diapers, distracting musical toys, annoying little siblings, or chores beyond the few dishes 3 guys can generate.
Despite the lack of details, I did see that Zachary uploaded some photos of their time away. Although the big boys prefer not to be blog subjects, I like to show that they are part of this family too!
We are a family blessed with nine children. Four of our blessings were born to us, and five joined us through adoption. They have Down Syndrome and are such a blessing to us and everyone who knows them!
Jamie and I have been married 20 years. He is a high school teacher, and I stay home to school the children.
We are now seeking to live together in a way that is pleasing to Jesus as our family encounters new challenges and embraces what each day brings.
