First Road Trip of the Year: Point Reyes

It's been awhile since we have visited Point Reyes. Today my husband and I made the almost three hour trip and it was well worth it!

There is nothing like the sunlight at the ocean. As we drove the lovely winding Navato Road, I felt like I was entering into a fairytale land- somewhere over the rainbow.

Point Reyes Light House

A Beautiful gift from my husband.

Troy and I watched a grey whale in the waters that surfaced about every five minutes and playfully spouts out his fountain before disappearing into the deep blue once again. 

Back at in our vehicle we enjoyed a thermos full of hot clam chowder with crackers and coffee.

Our Theme:
"Follow me and I will make you fishers of me." Mark 4:19

Our sister prepared the cutest puppet show to tell the story of Matt. 4: 17-20 and Luke 5:1-10. The kids sat on quilts laid on the grass and listened with enthusiasm.

Then they all got a chance to do some fishing for fish and men. When they caught a fish they a prize and when they caught a man they got an extra special prize.  We played a couple more games and had blue jello with whipped cream and gummy fish on it. 

They all got a gift to take home with their memory verse. A little fish frame to color and put a picture in of someone they would like to pray for to come to know Jesus. 

They had a lot of fun while learning more about what it means to serve Jesus.

Good Bye Sweet Holly

The Angels are crying with us this morning as we had to say goodbye to our sweet gentle eyed Holly. She was such a beautiful dog. We lost her to breast cancer. She never had her own puppies, but she lactated, nursed and watched diligently over the puppies our lab had. You can see the pictures of it on the link below. We got her for free when Shane was 8 years old and wanted his own dog. He loved her very much and spent a lot of time and his own money trying to cure her of cancer. She was my walking and jogging partner the last couple months. She was just such a sweet dog. I miss her already so much!!!

Griffeth Quarry

It was nice to get out in nature for awhile today- to breath in the freshness of the cool damp earth, the fragrant pines and soft, sweet grasses. It was a wonderland of every shade of green imaginable.

Huggies for Surgical Padding

My husband came up with a great idea today to use disposable diapers to cover Holly's wound. We were going through the largest surgical pads we could find. I paid $9 for a box of twelve at Walgreen's, and then we bought another box for $6 at Walmart. Today, Felecia picked up a box of 168 Huggies at Target for $25. Well, I wasn't expecting her to get such a large amount of diapers, but maybe we can make another diaper cake for someone soon? $25 divided by 168= .15 cents per diaper. $6 divided by 12= .50. So if you take .15 away from .50 you have a savings of .35 a pad. So 12 diapers = $1.80. That is a savings of $4.20 per box of surgical pads. Not bad! And they work great. In fact, because the way her tumor protrudes out of her stomach, the gathered sides of the diaper help keep it covered better.
