Camp here in Daytona is off to a good start. I’ve been able to attend both nights of worship so far. It’s good to be able to sit and support Dave. He works so hard and I’m not kidding when I say he puts all his time and energy into every time he is given a platform to communicate. I respect him so much for what he does and the preparation he puts into things. It’s just good to be physically in the room with him this week. It’s good to be a part of the journey that the camp is on. It’s the only time I’ll be heading to camp with Dave this summer. Well I take that back. I may attempt a few days in Talladega, AL sometime in July. Still too early to tell. It’s just hard with Izzie and being on the road. She’s wonderful but she’s also an 18month old in a hotel room with 5 other people and playing in the pool and beach which she is not all that accustomed to. My mom is here with us so I have absolutely no room to complain about managing things. Nana has been a HUGE help and I think she is…well I know she is loving being here at the beach.
This past Saturday Emma was a flower girl in Dave’s Cousins Wedding. She was the perfect flower girl. She loved every minute of the day and I think as her mom, I’ll remember spending the day with her and watching her enjoy it for the rest of my life. Our children grow so fast. What an amazing memory we created. I was so proud of her. She is one sweet, tenderhearted little girl. If you need a flower girl we’ve got one for rent!
How do you know when your kids are growing up way too fast? You see them ride a two wheeler for the first time. Today Emma learned to ride her bike without training wheels. All the family was there to cheer her on. Dad was running beside her and off she went. Izzie and I cheered from the sidelines. Emma was so proud. I shed a tear in my heart. These earlier years are hard and tiring but they are slipping away so fast.
