Investigating a horseshoe crab with a 7 year old
Teaching my 16 year old to drive
Walking approximately 200 miles of boardwalk, beach front, and nature trails
Observing a rehabilitated sea turtle release
Reading, eating, and sleeping outside
Putt Putt, Pizza and Pool parties with middle-schoolers
Moving into a new church building
Taking teenagers to King’s Dominion and out for ice cream
Meeting new “significant others” and watching our family expand
Learning new skills, taking a class, and sharing ideas with co-workers
Consuming copious amounts of black bean salsa, a few hundred shrimp, and taste testing all the crab cakes in Hampton Roads
Watching a school of dolphins frolic right in front of me
