Trippin to the San Luis Valley

It is officially summer break for us. I am so excited because this means camping and road trips! I grew up camping and taking spur of the moment road trips. I will NEVER outgrow camping and road trips. I love sharing these special moments with my family! The sense of adventure, the unknown, being in nature and spending time enjoying God’s amazing creations.

It is an interesting analogy, as sponges can get gross over time. Does that mean are kids are taking in the bad stuff along with the good and are impacted by it? Unfortunately, they are!

Mom: The Heart of the Family
