It is because as I write tonight, THE FINAL packing up of the RV is being done..Bikes being disassembled, the wheels off the stroller, the pups outside fence taken down, evening candles blown out and packed away and the outside carpet all rolled up and put away...with only the outline remaining..
All kids and laundry scrubbed clean of the chlorine that has soaked them for the last 3 weeks.
It was a wonderful time for all of us..Let me just say that 25 days has FLOWN PEOPLE!
Packed Even MORE FULL than our physical things in this RV are THE MEMORIES that will pack our minds and hearts FOREVER! A special family time making more blessed memories than we even deserve. We are thanking God for it all. For allowing The Captain this time off, for allowing me to be able to homeschool our kids, for new friendships made, for sunshine & rainbows and fish and even for the stressful times. YES, OF COURSE there are stressful times with 9 people together NON STOP for 25 days! I just love my family so much and still remain in AWE of God's plan for us to have 8 children! BLESSED BEYOND MEASURE!
Here are the 2 gals I was blessed to hang with during our stay. Neither one of which was turned off by the number of children we have..
I took this pic yesterday during a 5 minute rainstorm we had. MORE PROOF that God is all around us, sending that rainbow to remind us of his promises to us.
We will start making our 5 day journey home tomorrow and this trip is just more than I could have asked for. It just was..
OH SUGARLOAF KEY KOA, HOW I WILL MISS THEE..
I must go wipe my tears away now as we head BACK TO REALITY :)
