Two Weeks Away

Well, we were gone for the last two weeks. First, Jack was given the great opportunity to speak for World Changers in Anniston, AL. So Jack took some vacation time and we all went together to Annistion. It was a great week of fun family time and Jack getting to preach. And it provided a little extra income! We stayed at an Inn and really enjoyed it- the pool was really nice, the boys were well-behaved. We found an awesome city park that was free and had a lake with ducks to feed and a mini-water park with several playgrounds! It was very awesome! At the end of the Anniston week, Jack's furlough week began. It was a week that he did not work, but was also not paid for. We decided to turn a negative into as positive an event as it could be and we got away for the week. We began the week going from Annistion, AL to Billingsley, AL to see Nana and PawPaw. We had a wonderful time visiting and the boys had a blast. And Jack and I were able to worship that Sunday at Church At Brook Hills in Birmingham. It was wonderful. We love the preaching of their pastor, Davide Platt. But it was also refreshing to just be able to sit in church and worship without being in charge of anything- we were just regular worshipers not pastor and wife! It was a great little time of refreshing. Here are some pics from our week in Anniston and Billingsley!

Can you tell we had a great time???

And then we came home for a day to do laundry and re-pack before heading up to North Georgia to see my family. However, Grammy decided to get into a car accident and so our day at home was cut short since we went straight on up to help take care of her! Thankfully, she was ok- just very sore and bruised with a totaled car! Our friends and my sister's in-laws let us use their lake house for the week so we could have a Moffett Family vacation. Stacey, Andrew and their boys and Grammy and Pop-Pop and the five of us all enjoyed our mini-vacation. They have an awesome inflatable water slide/pool that all five boys loved. And Caleb, Hayden and Noah loved swimming in the lake. We really enjoyed the jet ski- a first for me and the boys! We took a boat ride, too. We did lots of relaxing and spending quality time together. The boys caught lots of frogs and Jack even caught a baby snake! Here's pics from the Georgia week

We had a wonderful two weeks away. Although the circumstances that caused the break are not so happy, God continues to be good and He blessed us with a wonderful family and two weeks of time together! We are grateful for the little things!
