"Our homes, imperfect as they are, must be a haven from the chaos outside. They should be a reflection of our eternal home, where troubled souls find peace, weary hearts find rest, hungry bodies find refreshment, lonely pilgrims find communion, and wounded spirits find compassion.”

Whee!

A great perk of my older kids working at this adventure farm (corn maze, giant slides, pumpkin slingers, animals, giant jumping pillows, etc) is that our whole family can get in for free.

The other day the farm was open for school groups only, but we got to go in and do some fun things for the little ones. It is probably the last trip for this year as the farm closes for the season, on Saturday. We also were there before the school groups arrived and the kids did everything they wanted to before the groups got there, so it was like having the place open just for us!

Emily was working the slide, so she helped Kyle with the slide.


Here Rachel has joined him and they are headed down!


Here they come!



Wouldn't you know that when I went to snap the last photo of their happy faces at the bottom, my batteries died! Ugh!
They did this slide about 3 times before heading over to the giant pillow, where Lindsay was working, to jump!
I am blessed that the older kids and the younger kids have such love and affection for one another. They all had such a fine time together!
