Showing gratitude

So much to be thankful for. Looks like you live in a beautiful part of the country.
I read that you were homeschooled, what a blessing.

I love that we live in a place that has distinct seasons, too. It makes us appreciate spring all the more. I also have always wanted to make maple syrup. How fun that you did that. Great list!

How fun! What a sweet family you have. What a blessing that you get to live near family too...

Your little girl has a sense of style like my little girl. They must be around the same age. How cute.

Okay, I've been rather emotional lately anyway but your list and pictures made me laugh and cry. I love Megan's outfit. Singing around a campfire looks wonderful. We all thought the picture of dad and Megan with the four wheeler looked like fun. Miss you guys. Thanks for keeping us posted.

I NEVER read these but recently, for LENT, picked up "A Holy Experience" -- a gentle reminder to Pause and Worship. Today I scrolled further and found an "Abbi". :)
(which is my #2 daughter's spelling.)
I also was raised in MN and tapped trees. And just yesterday a dear friend's mother's next door apartment was on fire in Bemidji. So, I read and was blessed. . . You have a beautiful family! God indeed is kind. 2Cor. 4:1,5
