Summer Beach Wednesdays Begin!

There is nothing like a day at the beach to completely relax me.  Today kicked off our 2nd annual beach Wednesday playgroup at Zuma beach in Malibu.  Just typing "2nd annual" seems strange!

The kids love knowing that Wednesdays are beach days and have been looking forward to spending time there with friends.  Last summer we were new to the area and our dear friends Celeste and Colin invited us join them in their beach Wednesday tradition.  It was a great chance for the kids and I to meet some of the other mommies and kids from church while enjoying the sand and water.

One year later, I had the chance to not only enjoy beach Wednesday, but I invited three great mommies and their kids from school to enjoy the day with us.  It was great fun!  As I look back upon this past year, I am so very grateful for the people that God surrounded me with in California.  And I am reminded that He is faithful, He hears our prayers, and He is good.
