Macie's Garden

Macie would be so excited to know that her memorial garden won the Green Thumb Award!!! Building that garden was the best therapy for our family last year, and it has brought a lot of beauty to our yard.

Back From Camp

We had so much fun at camp! I was surprised to find out that it wasn't as difficult as I thought. Jordan and Macie were supposed to go together last year, but of course that didn't happen. I thought it would be a lot harder being there and knowing that Macie never had the opportunity to attend. The goal at camp is to get the kids to disconnect from the outside world and to realize their need for Jesus. It brought tears to my eyes to watch some of the children accept Jesus. Fortunately, Macie had already accepted Christ and she was prepared to be with Him. All of the fun at camp could never compare to the fun we will have in heaven! I still missed her terribly and wished she could have been in our cabin with us. One of Macie's friends from preschool was in our group, and it was strange watching her and Kaylee hang out together. Macie should have been right there with them.

Carter, on the other hand, didn't enjoy his week at all. He was too young to attend camp, and he has never been away from me for more than a night. He spent a lot of time crying, and whenever I would call home, he would yell, "come home NOW!!!" We were so excited to see each other on Friday. He ran right to me, and we were both holding back tears. I was able to get a glimpse of what my reunion with Macie might look like one day.
