My college roommate opened her beautiful and spacious home to our family while we were in Lexington. One of my favorite places in her house was the little window seat nook where I could curl up in the morning with a cup of coffee and my Bible.
The last time we saw Amy and her family was almost five years ago, and a lot has changed for both of our families since then. They've added two beautiful girls and moved to Lexington, and we've moved overseas. I loved how our kids played so well together, just like they were cousins who had been together last week.
We enjoyed the Newport Aquarium together,
with its sharks
and great hands-on experiences for the kids.
Although we all had a blast,
my animal-loving Olivia enjoyed every minute. Especially "kissing" the penguins.
Sarah crocheted a little hat for this little bear and left a lasting impression on her cute little "cousin".
We love this sweet family, and we're so thankful for them. They have encouraged us and stayed in touch and supported us throughout our time in the Solomon Islands.
