Do you remember the parable of the persistent widow? We could write our own about persistent sons. These two have asked for hermit crabs every year while on our beach trip since the time they could talk. We have always said no or "the week is just starting, maybe we can come back toward the end of the week" Not. I don't know why we have never let them--either way, this year, we broke.
If we had known the fun and happiness these crabs would have delivered, we may have said yes sooner. (I'm feeling a bit sorry for my pet deprived children.)
Besides hermit crab races and training..our week was full of sunshine, cousins, fishing, swimming, and laughter. Here are some random photos from the week:
"What is good?" Micah 6:8 t-shirts
Did I mention how many cousins my children have on my side of the family? 16!!
I heart family!
beach vacations where we are ALL together!
I am hoping by next year's vacation there will be one more in the picture and one less orphan without a family. Until then, I will relish in the family that I have been so blessed to be a part of.
I have decided to keep the below sale going--no more freebie surprises, though. I'll update if we get close to sold out. We've sold about half of the shirts. Thank you!!
