Our kids are clueless. They have no idea that white sand, crystal clear water, and 80 degree February days are not the lifestyle of the majority. For them, these are the amenities of a weekend trip. Its ridiculous. What a blessing! So, while we certainly mourn the loss of certain aspects of the lifestyle we consider "normal," the loss is often aided by blessings that come in the form of playing on a sunny beach with the kids. This weekend, we were able to kill a couple of birds with one stone as we had a little family getaway, took our turn at the SAV church, and then picked up our friend Erin at the airport.
