There has finally been a slight change in the weather lately. Fall has been slow in coming to Florida but we are beginning to feel a difference in the air. I feel like I hold my breath all year for when the weather changes and I can go outside without sweating. Don't get me wrong, I love living in Florida. I am so thankful that the sun shines on us just about every day and I don't have to bundle my kids to go out all the time. But I do wish it wasn't so hot for so long.
The days have been non stop from sunrise to sunset around here. It takes a lot to care for a family of seven! Not to mention homeschooling 3 children and keeping the 2 little ones out of trouble. Since the weather has been so much more bearable we have been getting out as much as we can to enjoy it. Though I like to start our school days early sometimes it's nice to get out early and come back and do school.
We set off for one of our favorite stomping grounds this week. We love this park. It's probably the only spot in the city that has rolling hills. We love looking for alligators, birds, turtles and other critters. There is also a little nature center that the kids never get tired of seeing.
Our days aren't always picture perfect but I am so thankful for God's grace in our lives. No matter what our days look like or how good or not good they go, He is faithful to be with us and and give us what we need for each day inspite of ourselves and our circumstances.
Do you have a favorite park that you go to?
How do you see God's grace throughout your day?
