Every summer, our church family spends a Sunday together at the beach. It is wonderful. We fellowship in the sand and sun together and then go out to eat together for dinner. We especially appreciated it this year because it doesn't look like we are going to be able to go on a family beach trip with the grandparents. And attempting a beach trip with 3 littles and no help is just not going to happen. (We did it last year with only 2 little ones and although we made wonderful memories, Mark and I were utterly exhausted and decided not to do it again without help!)
But our church family is awesome. They know we have our hands full and totally take care of us. They carried our junk, fed our girls, played with them, and really let us relax and enjoy the time together. We couldn't have done it without them!
Not only do they help us, but the impact they have on our girls is priceless. Our girls feel so special and loved by our church family.
