Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young—a place near your altar, O LORD Almighty, my King and my God. Psalm 84:3

Spring Break: A Hunting We Will Go?

Our country boys...

Growing Up Garcia invited our family to visit Camp Garcia in South Carolina. All the kids 'hunted' for rabbits and checked out Ethan's turkey. We had mixed reviews if Nicci's Nest will ever go camping with Growing Up Garcia. Kelli was quick to point out there were perfectly good hotels in town!
