Underwater World and Home

Hello my faithful friends and readers,

I am happy to tell you that we are home, we are all doing fine, and on the road to recovery. :) Stuart and I talked many times in the last 2 days and agreed today would be the day for us to come home.
The children and I travelled up home today, and we are all feeling settled to be together again- a little surreal, changed and new, but still the right timing.  I know it will be a long road ahead, but with little baby steps and a God who can do amazing things, I am feeling much more hopeful for our family than I was a week ago.  And we have 2 weeks holiday stretching before us, so lots of time together- I hope we can use it really well.

I know my blog has had a very different feel lately, and for that I apologise!  Things really have been pretty blue.  I guess I have had trouble focusing on anything else, and my journalling has reflected that.

SO, for a complete change and a breath of fresh air, here are some photos from our wonderful day yesterday!  Mum and Ray decided they wanted to do something really special for the children, and treated us to a day at Underwater World which was just north of where we were staying.

It was truly a great great day, perfect to reflect upon and share with Stu as we came home today.  Enjoy!!

 "He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High 
       will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. 

  I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, 
       my God, in whom I trust.""  Psalm 91:1

We love going to underwater world. The kids always have a lovely time & it's educational (bonus!!) Love that pic of will standing looking at the fish - he sure is cute!

You truly have some of the most gorgeous children that I've ever seen! They're seriously very beautiful. I love the picture of the three of them together. :o)

Don't you worry a bit about the feel of the blog - it's genuine, and you're a wonderful person who we love to get to know, and you have lots of support from your friends here in blogland!

What a wonderful time it looked like you had at Underwater World. The children are so beautiful and love their smiles.
Continue to pray for you as you and Stuart spend time together and as a family.
I'm really glad how you've shared so regularly and honestly through this hard time. I hope it's helped you too.
