After we got home from church on Sunday, we got a lunch together, hopped in our van and drove the two hours to Greenport, New York, located near the tip of Long Island. On the way, we passed dozens of vineyards, pumpkin patches and corn mazes. It was a beautiful drive and when we got to our destination, we were not disappointed. Greenport is a quaint little harbor town and we just so happened to come during their fall festival so stands were set up everywhere with fun little finds. We meandered, we found a carousel much to the delight of the kids and afterwards, they played in a field with a group of other kids. After a few hours, we finished off the little excursion with dinner at a place on the water called “Crabby Jerry’s”:) Rick was quite happy to get his favorite meal, fish and chips, and I got a salmon burger that was surprisingly delicious. The kids ate their usual chicken and french fries, danced for a while on the restaurant deck, (much to the amusement of those eating around us), and then we were off again, back to the city!
Thank you Lord for our new van and for rejuvenating little escapes!
(By the way, homeschooling continues to go well as do the classes Micah and Ellie are involved in. I will try to update some of our recent school activities soon. And… we are waiting to hopefully finalize some important news…stay tuned!:)
