Zipline for my birthday present!!! AWESOME!
We've had some busy weeks with school starting and teaching a new Teen class at church  but we've taken some time out to have some fun. Last week for my birthday, Mike took me to Zipquest Waterfall & Treetop Adventure. It was so much fun. Once you start on the first platform, you don't come down out of the trees for 2 1/2 hrs.! You get to cross a waterfall on a rope bridge & go down 8 ziplines.  We felt totally safe & the guides were fantastic. Highly recommended!!

This past weekend  we took a few days to go down to the Outer Banks. We took the ferry to Ocracoke Island (where Mike & I got engaged yrs. ago) and played on the beach most of the day. The kids had a blast playing putt putt, eating ice cream & going to the lighthouse & aquarium. Thanks Nana & Poppy! Great memories were made.

We'd appreciate your prayers this week as we continue school. Noah seems to be adjusting & learning great but Laurel is struggling a bit. She's regressed in some behaviors & not wanting to go. When I pick her up however, she says she's had a good time. She does like her new therapist who will be doing her speech therapy twice a week while in school so that's a good sign. Thanks!
