We are saying goodbye today to our home and neighborhood, and I'm processing this the best way I know... by writing and reminiscing.
We set out to get to know our new neighborhood just like this almost every day.... for years I pushed strollers through the streets of Lake Park!
We've enjoyed our neighbors....
.... and hosted Back Yard Bible Clubs, Back Yard Explorers Camps, Cousins Days, etc.
We've loved the traditions of Lake Park, like the Fall Festivals, the Kite Days, and our favorite, the Bike Parades:
We've enjoyed hosting parties, for Pete's students and for friends:
....and the occasional random adventure, like when the hot air balloon came down.
Season after season has been beautiful from this vantage point!
The Lord has blessed us in our home in Lake Park!
