During our time in the west, we went back to Washington and visited our former church and saw some dear friends. we also took a bit of time to see the ocean...something I think everyone should see. I know Noamers won't remember it, but we have pictures :)
Something about the ocean, about the big-ness of it points to how big my God is. I find it easy to be made aware of how small I am and how immense His love for me must be that he would think of me.
Welcome to the shore, little one!
In the True North
This summer, we went for an adventure! The entire Stobbe clan went up to "the Lake" a place my family has been going to since I was 2. I have a lot of wonderful memories there and it was thrilling to make some new memories with my own family. Taking bike rides with Jerusha, walking with Naomi, riding dirt bikes in the mountains with Jeremy...I completely understand why my parents spent the money on such a place. That is something I really appreciate about my parents. I know there were other places they could have spent their money, but they chose to invest in a place were we could be together and make memories...relationships first.
Here's Grandpa Stobbe with the newest Biker Babe!
Dad and John took on the 3 amigos. Isaac and Roo loved being in the canoe...Megan loved stepping back on dry land!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY NAOMI!!!
Our sweet baby turned 1 on August 9th. We had her party at Mom and Dad's (Stobbe's) house with our dear family. It was such a treat to be together. I am so proud of Naomi.....she has become such a darling. She likes to check everything out before she tries something. She's thoughtful about the things she does.....and she's incredibly cute! She's also very loyal. The other day a comb (of all things) caught her fancy and she held on to that comb the entire day. She played with one hand, she ate with one hand, she pulled her sister's hair with one hand all so she could keep her paws on her comb. Finally at the end of the day I was able to extract it from her hand once she fell asleep. Her character is coming out and we love watching her as each day she has something to new to show us.
