So for those of you who are new (YAY and welcome), my family decided to meet up at least once a month in honor of Rochelle, after she passed away January 2015. It has been going great and I love the fact that we have to be intentional with each other and make sure a visit happens every month.
It never fails that something goes wrong on the day of, or the day before our visit, but somehow/someway, God makes it possible for all of us to travel safely to be together.Today was also the first time our foster child has seen his Dad in over a month! It was a lot going on in one day (more about that on the blog tomorrow)!
But for this months location, we all decided Seguin, Tx! There is no doubt that this is one of the most beautiful cities with Guadalupe River running straight through it. My Pop lives there, so we decided to all meet up at his house for a few hours and just be together.
My parents decided to pick up lunch from Chisholm Trail BBQ in Lockhart, Tx and bring it to us all, and it was so delicious! After lunch, we all just talked, hung out, and enjoyed spending time together. I haven’t been back to the house since David passed away and it was really nice being in his old room, and going out to his garden where he would tell me everything he was growing and take me on a walk around the yard. It was his motivation each and every day to see what all he could grow and produce out there. I walked away with a box full of keepsakes that were his favorites that I will forever remember him by.
Overall it was a great afternoon that I wouldn’t trade for the world. As much as I would have loved for Shane to be able to take off to join us, he had so much fun hearing all the stories of the day!
I will share some of the pictures with y’all, and you can tell yourself how these kids just exude happiness.
