The cabin was a cozy fit for all eighteen of us plus four adults, but we made it work. It was nestled in a kind of clearing in a forest and during the day the younger kids would explore, running past the fire pit and into the parts of the woods where the trees grewContinue reading “Answered Prayers”
Last week I started my final year of school. I’m sorry… WHAT?! It honestly feels like two minutes ago I was finishing year 6 and feeling oh-so grown up.
