I don't even remember the last time that we went to the beach with the girls. We've gone to the lake up by the cabin, it has a beach. Does that count? Julie, Allison and Adrienne invited us for a girls (and little girls) weekend away. We arrived in Ocean City sometime near lunch (yeah, we tried to get there earlier, but...). We sat their in the sand from about 12:30 till 6:00. Down to the ocean, back up to the towels, down to the ocean, play in the sand. That's the way in went for hours. Leah got to see the ocean for the very first time she was SO excited. She would sit on the shore line squealing and waving at the ocean to come back and splash her once more. We made our way to Atlantic City for a night in a fun hotel, complete with pizza, princesses and movies. A quick trip to the shops in AC in the morning. A treat for the girls at the Disney Store and a crazy ride home complete with some potty stops on the side of the road.

Today Aubrey made the most important decision she will ever make. She decided that she wanted to live forever with God in heaven. She prayed a simple prayer in the back of the car. It is beautiful that such a small child can understand the greatness of what Jesus did for them on the cross. We pray for both our girls that they would love God with their whole heart and that he would give them courage and strength to share their faith with this hurting world.
I am so blessed that God has allowed me to be a part of such a special little girl's life. I know that God has knit her together perfectly for His will and purpose.
I pray that she will continue to grow in her relationship with Him.

One of the coolest things about getting to be a part of Matt's family when I started coming around was that 4th of a July was a big deal. Every year there was a celebration of not just Independence Day but also the honoring and celebrating of one very special man. Grandad! I am so lucky to get to be a part of this family and to get to be a part of Jack Webster's life and story. Every time I am with him, but especially on this day I think about all that he as done in his life and the amazing legacy that he is leaving behind. One of faith and respect and courage. I pray for many more birthdays with this man. We love you Grandad! Happy Birthday!
