    The Hiatus Report

    September 17, 2007 by Brandy Vencel

    All the posts in the world could not begin to convey how wonderful was our hiatus. It was due to the amazing generosity of family that we were able to take such a journey in the first place, and I think we will be forever in their debt. I do believe we made significant additions to our stockpile of beautiful family memories.

    It took a lot of planning and preparing and packing to make this trip successful, and yet it was well worth the effort. I will share a bit of what worked in the planning/preparing department sometime this week.

    Today, I just want to gaze upon the above photo of my three babies sitting in the sand at sunset. This was something we did three or four times during the eight days we were gone. By the last time, the children themselves were watching the sky for sundown. And I, for one, wished I could freeze time. Not just because they were so cute when they were sticky and sandy, but because they were so little, and that, my friends, is something that just doesn’t last.

    You wouldn’t be bias because I have two with strawberry hair, would you? 🙂

    So beautiful!

    You are so right, my little ones are growing leaps and bounds before my very eyes and it’s exiting and sad all at the same time. Very bittersweet.

    Well, we’ll be seeing you soon, the move is a week and a half away and I am STRESSING OUT!!! Pray for me. 🙂
