Short-But Sweet

My trip down to Michigan to visit our g'son, Javan, was indeed
'short, but sweet'. When Emily and I discovered that Javan's
spring break was the same week as her children, we knew we
wanted to go!
We spent a lot of time swimming, but discovered a nature park
that was located not far from our motel too. This photo is of
Javan and Lambert on one of the many downed logs they
It wasn't just the 'little' ones that got a thrill out of playing
circus either!
Starlet wasn't quite sure she was going to cross this log standing.
It was a good 5' off the ground. But little brother, Lambert,
was there to encourage her.

Star was really happiest when she found flowers she could pick!
You see that big leafy one? Well we soon discovered once we
were in the car, that it must be what's know as a 'skunk' flower!
Stinky, for sure.
Can you see the Canadian Goose nesting on this mound? We
almost walked right past it.
I can't begin to tell you how special it was for me to have this
time with the g'kids before we shove off to the Yukon. Before
leaving we went to Javan's home where he put on a piano
recital for us all. He is doing so well!
It's so good to get back home. I'm hoping I'll have time to drop
by to visit and see what all of you have been up to lately.
 We will be leaving
early Wednesday morning. I've got a feeling our lives going
 to be like a whirlwind of change for a while. My greatest
comfort is in knowing that wherever I go the Lord goes
with me.
Have a great Monday-Kimberly

  3. Kimberly,

    Good morning! There is nothing better than visiting and spoiling the Grand Kids any chance you can get. Looks like everyone really enjoyed themselves walking through the park/woods. Wednesday is getting closer. Are you getting a little excited? I'm excited for you and hubby. This sounds like a wonderful adventure!! Catch you later.

  4. Oh- Kimberly- I am excited for you and sad for you at the same time. I know it must be heart wrenching to leave family so far behind. Keep us updated as best you can and I hope that once you are settled in you will be able to post often and fill us in on your new life adventure- xo Diana

  11. Good morning Kimberly..
    I looks like you had a wonderful visit, and a fun time with the grands.
    You will miss them, and they will miss you.
    How sweet it will be to see them again.

    I'm so excited for you to begin your new adventure!

    Be safe, and keep us posted on how things are going.

  12. It looks like you had a wonderful weekend with your grands, I'm very happy for you. I find it very hard to be so far away from my daughter and her kids. I think she finds it to be equally difficult, sometimes we just need each other, don't we.
    Enjoy your drive! I haven't blogged for a while, I will get back into it when I feel like I have something to say.
    Hugs, Cindy

  13. I am glad you got to be with them before you left.
    I know God has many adventures for you to accomplish.
    Go in Peace.

  14. I am so happy for you that you were able to have this visit before moving. It must be so exciting to wonder what the adventure will be like.
    I can't wait to see the photos from the Yukon. You will be taking lots of friends with you.

  15. Hi Kimberly, So glad you got to spend some time with your grands...

    Prayers for you all as you enter a brand new life!!!

  16. Kimberly, I don't know why I haven't been to your blog in so long, and I appreciate you visiting mine, when I saw your name I thought wow, I haven't been there in a long time! ANYWAY, I love all your pictures, especially of your grandchildren and children. Such beautiful souls! Good luck on your move to the Yukon. I will be following it all!

  17. Hi Kimberly, I loved seeing your grands climbing the logs and having such fun. Grandchildren are life's greatest blessing. Happy traveling friend.
    Hugs, Noreen
