Hitting the Beach Again...

I'm up late packing and doing some last minute washing. I had an incredibly long evening nap, and now I'm wide awake. Good thing, because I am so not even close to being packed yet!

We're going to try the beach again as part of a few mini-vacations we're doing with the younglings this summer.

We haven't fared well our last two coastal outings. I wrote about the first incident last summer: http://the-moose-pond.blogspot.com/2007/08/back-home-early.html

Also, earlier this summer, our mission trip was cut way short by Hurricane Dolly. I'm still not sure our son comprehends "why God would cancel a mission trip." Or... "why God would allow the hurricane to blow over the outside walls of the new church building our crew worked so hard on." But, I know that God is good, and I hope someday my son does as well.

Sidenote aside, I'm looking forward to the next few days, and praying/hoping we get to finish our trip this time. Wish us well as we monkey around at the beach. (Had to get the word, "monkey" in, you'll see why at the bottom of this post. *smirk* Again, it doesn't take much to entertain me.)
