Building sand castles at the beach is an absolute must. Some kids close by were coveting our spade. This is Edinburgh Castle, only we added a moat – with crocodiles.
We headed to Kure Beach on Saturday, just for the day. You might not think it’s worth the 3 hour drive there and the 3 hour drive back, but I’m telling you it is. The kids love it, and so do we. The sea air just helps us to reeeeeelax and truly chill out for […]

For example, I would sooner watch Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter than the Oscar winning […]

Each of the devotions are written at such a level, that even our youngest (8) can fully participate in the conversation. Family What? “Family devotions”, you say! “They’re one of those families”, you exclaim! I used to think the […]
