It is always fun to leave for vacation, but I love the joy of coming back home.
We had a wonderful adventure exploring the Texas coast. Some of the trip highlights for me were attending Summit Church in Corpus Christi and the dolphin tour we booked through The Dolphin Connection.
Mindy and I and the children were able to relax, play, and enjoy one another. It was the deep breath before jumping back into the start of a new school year.
As the start of school approaches and church life begins to pick up in pace, I want to take a second to remind you of some important events that are quickly approaching.
