This week (actually last of August) has been a hard week for our family. We lost our little buddy, Otie ba goatie. He has been a part of our family for over 10 years and we will miss him terribly.

Just some random pictures from the beach that I want included in my "journal". These are mainly activities we played. This was at the Estauriaum. We only went to the "petting" tank this time. The kids love to see the stingrays and pet them and sometimes there are hammerhead sharks in the tanks.
We drove into Mobile to go to the Exploreum
Looking for clues to a murder mystery
Seeing how the body works
We even managed a little school work

Awwwww, sigh. We have been going to Dauphin Island now for 5 years. We had the best time.....so relaxing, so fun, so soothing at least to me. There is something that draws me to the beach. I don't particularly like getting in the water; I just like sitting on the beach and listening to the waves. And the boys have grown up going to the beach. In fact, Isaiah thinks this is Jenny's other house.
Some treasure hunting
happy to be here
Let's bury my feet
just a walk along the beach

Some down time after the water
Let's bury dad

Nothing special? Does there always have to be something special going on or can we just be living an everyday ordinary life. Isn't that special enough? I think so. We have the opportunity to live in a nice warm (or cool) home with lots of creature comforts; we have plenty (really more than enough) of food to eat; we are healthy and that's a big thing; good jobs. We have a great church that we can freely attend so we can worship our truly amazing God. I think that all is pretty special. I get to see my grandkids almost every day and that is extra special. They even call asking to come over although I think they just want to get a snack and watch tv but I'm OK with that. I even get to travel some. Woohoo! Oh and do some "junkin". So you see, I think there is something very special going and it's called Life. And I am blessed beyond measure to be living it.

Summer may be winding down but we are still very busy with all kinds of activities. Since Jessica is the youth pastor at church, we do a lot of things with the older ones such as Sunday night movie nights,
Canning spaghetti sauce
Busy, busy, busy but fun summer time activities. Never a dull moment around this farm.
