Looks like a fun time for all. We took our daughter to Plymouth Plantation when she was 6. She had a blast and still talks about it 14 years later.
God bless this family. Just saw the article about your son and Iowa QB C.J. Bethard. As a fellow Iowa grad and fan with a family of six, it was awesome to come across the story!
As a homeschooling mom of 6, I am amazed by all your family is doing. I saw your blog when my cousin posted the Hawkeye article. Very encouraging!
Just read an amazing story about Jay texting Scripture to C.J. Beathard which led me here! Beautiful family! Love all the photos and adventures!! God Bless You!!
