Brother and Sister Quality Time

I love being outdoors and enjoying God’s creation. My favorite place to be is the mountains, but an almost equally nice place is gliding along the water. Jesse and I worked out our schedules (his work and I’ll be traveling myself soon), and last Wednesday, we drove to southern Missouri and went on an 8 mile canoe float trip.

Jesse “docked” our boat while we had lunch on shore.

For a June day, it was perfect and so peaceful (only two others on the river). The crystal clear water felt good to wade in and just dangle your foot over the edge as we made our way down river. We enjoyed talking and the serenity of the atmosphere.

For those of you young people who have siblings at home, treasure each moment. Make opportunities to create special memories, for you never know when times will change!

Thanks to Jesse’s watch, we took a selfie at the end.


“As the hart panteth after the water brooks,
so panteth my soul after thee, O God.”
Psalm 42:1

  1. It looks like you two had a wonderful day together! I have all my (younger)siblings at home and I enjoy the opportunities I have to do things with them. We may not get out very often but there are enough of us that playing outdoor games is lots of fun anyway! 🙂

  2. Wow, the scenery is beautiful! It’s so nice to see a brother and sister enjoying special times and making memories together.

  3. Where did you float? We live in Missouri and enjoy floating on Current River near Eminence, MO.

    Thanks for sharing! Fun to see other homeschool families like ours.

    1. We floated from a place in Pineville, Missouri. We did the Big Sugar Creek and then ended in the Elk River.

  4. Aw. How sweet ! I like to spend time with my siblings Joyanna, Joshua, and Abigail. We like to read books, and I teach them piano too. 🙂

    1. That’s wonderful, Alanna, that you are investing in your younger siblings. I know they not only enjoy it, but your mom would appreciate it too.
