He's growing up. Some days not fast enough for either of us. Other days too fast for at least me. I wish he didn't have to learn everything like his mother...the hard way. We look a like and unfortunately, we have a lot of the same quirks. I acted just like him at his age. Under all the stuff, he's the same great kid that I'm proud of. Can't wait until the wisdom starts returning.

We walked in the drizzling, cold rain in and out of little gift shops. Robin loves antiques and we went into several shops. I found this funny little potty chair. Not for the purchase, but worth the blog pic.
Grandma and Grandpappy Crawford came in from Minnesota.
We have had a few days worth of visits with them. We took Robin and went to Roscoe Village in Coshocton, Ohio.

Through our marriage we've jumped many hurdles, loss of jobs, post pardom depression, learning a child has a learning disability, bullying, car wrecks, surgeries, and so forth...One thing has remained constant...love. We have never lost our love for each other. We have grown stronger as a couple. We have learned to rely on the strength of God in our lives. We have learned to trust on a time frame we don't always understand during the "training" but understand at the end "of the race."
So many hurdles are crossed, we have many more to go. I'm looking forward to doing this together in the love of my best friend...my husband!

In the drizzling, cold rain we watched Kota compete at his second meet of the season. This has been a strange year for our Dakota. He has had so many medical trials and yet he keeps pressing forward. He contracted mono at the beginning of March. The doctors said no track for 5 weeks. That means he missed all of the conditioning needed to help build stamina and technique.
He got to be coach for the middle school track hurdlers as they were conditioning. He enjoyed that. He didn't place at all during this meet. He smiled, but with disappointment in his eyes. I think he understands what the Doctor told him now. He won't be up to par for months. He dragged himself across the finish line on the 300 meter hurdles. He was tired. I'm just proud of him for trying.
The great thing about track--it is a personal sport as much as it is a team sport.

Stella ended up being Kayla's little shadow. She sat for awhile and got her fingernails and toes painted for our trip.
We enjoyed the gardens. Can you believe it was in the upper 80s and actually cooler than the day before at a record high of 93 degrees in April.
One of the best parts was being with our friends. We miss them.
It was so fun. They had all crazy kinds of hot dogs. I ordered a galactic dog which had chili, cheese, slaw and spicy mustard. Mmm. With a nice order of cheese fries, yep on vacation and didn't count calories.

Fort Sumter was smaller than I had envisioned and wasn't like any other fort that I had visited. It really was not that great. We did the tour in about 15 minutes.
Kota did score an in tacked clam shell. He was happy.
Stay tuned for more southern fun...

We decided to do a true spring break this year. We took off Friday at 8 am after Kota got off work and headed south. Charelston, SC is the desitination.
