A Family Event

We had many great games of foosball and table tennis in Colorado! Lots of laughter and good times were had all around.

“The Lord hath done great things for us;
whereof we are glad.”
Psalm 126:3

Water Time

I always love our time at the ponds. The mountain scenery is gorgeous, the water calm and clear, and a rousing game of tag can’t be passed up.

This was Ellie’s first experience with a pond, and even though the water was cold (as in cold!), she was pretty excited.

Checking it out.

Celebrating Ten Years for the Titus2 Blog

While today is still August, I want to let you all know that this month signifies our 10th year blogging. It’s hard to believe we’ve been sharing that long, but it’s true.

Thank you for reading. Thank you for rejoicing when we rejoice, weeping when we weep, and praying for us. We truly love you all.

Love,
Sarah

I love to chronicle everything from our hiking adventures to our everyday lives.

“Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God,
which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and
keep his commandments to a thousand generations.”
Deuteronomy 7:9

We’re Home!

We arrived home yesterday early evening after a pleasant drive. We had a delightful time in the mountains and are grateful the Lord provided the way for us to do that.

I’ll have a few more blog posts about our time there later.

Love,
Sarah

and make the voice of his praise to be heard.”

Calia and Ellie

Look at this little cutie enjoying the puppy. Calia loves Ellie.

(And yes, Joseph, Elissa, and Calia were able to spend a little time with us here in Colorado!)
