A little lightheartedness
I do not often share my family on here because this is Eli's journey, but I thought that I would share a little about how we have been slowly adjusting to to life without him. It really has been difficult to participate in fun filled activities knowing that we had planned on having a little one around to enjoy in the fun also. There are constant reminders of our loss, but not every moment has been filled with sadness. The 4th of July is always a time when we get together with family and celebrate our country. We generally go up to Lake Martin where Jamie's parents have a place on the 4th. This year we went on the 3rd because the 4th fell on a Sunday. We most always swim, boat, jet ski, and enjoy BBQ. The boys actually got to have a little fun tubing this time around. I am not very comfortable around water and up until this year my nerves just could not handle it. I decided to give my faith a chance, put my nerves on the back burner, and just go with it. I did and all turned out well. The boys were overly thrilled and had a blast. Here are a few pictures to prove it.
