Back to school

Looking back to the end of school, what a great Summer we had. We rested a week after school ended on June 8, 2012. Then we headed to our three week vacation by driving from Pennsylvania to South Carolina for a night. We spend a night with Jim and Ginger and drove to Ft.lauderdale, FL.

Spending a couple of nights at Miami beach, then to Marco Island. We had such an amazing time with my friend Genet and her kids. Five days later, we headed to Nickelodeon hotel and the kids enjoyed every minute swimming and playing double dare.

We went to Universal Studio and Wet n' wild in Orlando, FL. The weather was cool and the kids have amazing experience. Sure, God was on our side everywhere we go and His favor was upon us.

We finished our visit in Florida and we headed back to South Carolina. Our favorite time is enjoying moments with Jim and Ginger. As always, we had a great time cooking, eating, laughing and fishing.

Five days later, we drove to visit Pat in North Carolina. Pat is a sweet heart. I can just sit and chat all day with her. But, she planned for us to visit the butterfly farm and the state historical park. We went out to eat and we had a great fellowship with Pat and Josh.

After enjoying family visit, we had to make another stop. That is my kids favorite beach.....Virginia Beach. We stayed a few days swimming and enjoying each other's company.

On our way back, we stopped to visit with my brother Alem and his wife Askela for a night. We get to eat Ethiopian food, which we only get to eat when we go to see them. Alem is a wonderful brother, it is always nice to hangout with him.

We finally got back home July 7, 2012. What an amazing time with my kids and family!

The kids went to camp just for a week. The following week Emily went to the shore with a friend.

A week later, we got invited to a friend Lake house for three days. The kids were able to water ski, and canooing. Great swimming and laugh ending the nights watching the beautiful sunsets.

Jason was able to experience too visit Mexico by going as a mission trip for ten days.

We had kids coming and going to sleepovers. Swimming, going to library, eating out and reading and spending quiet time at home.

The last week of Summer end up taking day trips to Rohoboth beach, Hiking, and Mt. Lake Gretna with friends.

We celebrated Jacob's 10th birthday party, the boys played Soccer tournaments and Jacob team/ Gunners won the Championship. What a great way to end the Summer!

Now, here we are getting ready for tomorrow first day back school. The kids had put everything in their bag packs, ate dinner, took shower and relaxing and watching a movie Facing the Giants.

God has been so good to us. Showering us with His favor, His love and His arm of protection. We couldn't do what we do without His strength and His Peace.
