Rina was awestruck when she saw the beach for the first time. I've love that moment when each of my kids first sees the ocean and squiggles their toes in the sand.
That childlike wonder of God's creation is a precious thing to behold.
May we be like children and appreciate the beauty all around us and find delight in His world.

On Saturday we spent the day at the Civil War reenactment at Camp Rilea. It happens every Labor Day weekend and we enjoy going every few years. My two eldest nephews, Josh and Marcus, were recruited in the morning and got to participate in the afternoon battle.
They did really good keeping up with the other soldiers.
Rina enjoyed trying to find her cousins in the binoculars.

We visited Seaside the next day and the kids rode the carousel and then we all went out for sushi. Rina loves seaweed!
I was able to pay for our portion of the trip with my Underground Tour money that I've been getting for guiding. It's wonderful that we're able to do some fun things without having to stress about where the money is going to come from. What a blessing! My sister and I are planning a trip to Greece in May with her in-laws. I'm going to save all my Underground money to be able to go with her. I'm so excited for this once in a lifetime opportunity!
Have a Blessed Day,
