We moved our family from the great state of Texas to the beautiful coastal town of Ventura, California last October. Our first year has included so many new things.
Last Monday we asked our kids to make a list of the things they have most enjoyed about living in California. Then we grabbed a pizza and drove down to the beach where we read our lists to each other. It was a fun evening!
So I thought I’d share a few of our favorite things about our new home:
Madison (4 year old daughter)
Jade and Jayna (neighbor friends)
Lincoln (7 year old son)
(Bad thing = fog)
Kennedy (9 year old daughter)
Dates w/Linda (wonderful adult mentor)
Reagen (11 year old daughter)
New friendships with good and encouraging people
Regular dates with Mark
Running my first 10K
Museums, parks, and shopping
Fresh, cool ocean breeze
Church and church leadership team
Pacific Time Zone (don’t have to stay up late for games)
Our family adventures
Mountains reflecting different colors
Love hearing my family share some of things they enjoy about the area where God has placed us! We are so grateful for an incredible first year!
