I realize I haven’t posted in a while, but I have really been meaning to! I see your sweet comments you leave on my past posts, and your comments on instagram asking when I’ll post again, and it means so much to me that people are being encouraged by this blog.
I owe it all to God…I can’t take any glory.
SO…as winter is arriving I thought I would show y’all what life has looked like this fall in the Robertson household.
During fall break in October, we took a trip to meet my family in one of my favorite places in the world- Pagosa Springs, Colorado. My parents have a cabin there and we have been going to Pagosa since I was 8 years old. In the winter, Wolf Creek is a great place to ski, and in the summer the hikes are beautiful. I always thought summer was my favorite time to go, but now after going in the fall I have definitely changed my mind because nothing can beat the leaves changing colors!
JL and I arrived in Durango before my family (the closest airport) and due to the fact we are under “rental-car-renting-age” aka 21, we had a day to kill in Durango.
But we finally made it to Pagosa that night.
Someone was really happy to see JL.
The next day we went on a hike to Piedre Falls.
One of Teagon’s happier moments of the day haha.
The Liberty students just had to get a picture in front of the Liberty Theatre downtown!
October 11 was JL’s birthday! Yay!
We had a USA themed breakfast b-day party to start off the day.
I don’t know who had more fun…the big boy or the little boy…you tell me.
Then we went on a birthday hike to Treasure Falls. One of my absolute favorites. I can remember climbing up the rocks as a 10 year old thinking I was such a cool nature girl haha, but as a 19 year old I was about to have an anxiety attack thinking I was about to slip.
Also, take a look at the McEacharn Christmas card for 2015!
Day 3 called for yet another hike. Another favorite…Opal Lake
T learning to use the Go-Pro.
Dad getting in on the fun!
When life gives you a nature see-saw…
…you play on the nature see-saw.
And when your sister thinks she is Katniss…
…quickly remembers she’s nots..
you laugh..and laugh some more.
But don’t worry Kel, dad’s got ya!
Baby T had a long day.
(if you just fell head over heels in love with this place, my parents rent their cabin out, so check it out here and book your trip to pagosa…you’ll LOVE it )
Our time in Colorado had to come to an end, BUT then it was time to head to Nashville to see the Robertson side of our family.
They surprised us with birthday bowling!
Then to watch Sadie present at the Dove Awards…
she was incredible.
Then it was back to Lynchburg.
Came back to friends and….MORE HIKING.
One of mine and John Luke’s favorite things about Liberty is Convocation. Three days a week the entire school gathers together to hear different speakers. It really is such a blessing. We get to hear the most incredible people…from authors to preachers to actors to Fox News Anchors to presidential candidates… you name it! But whats most fun is when one of our friends comes to speak! That week in particular Jefferson Bethke was in town. (He does spoken word and is an author..check our Jesus>Religion…so great!) So we took him to the mountains for a good time.
John Luke’s silly side.
Then we celebrated Laura and Wesley getting married!
And got down at the reception hehe
A few weeks went by and I just really needed to get home for a little while…so I went…
and it was so good. Time spent with family is time very well spent.
Went home in time for a Ben Rector concert…he’s the real deal guys…check out his music…you will become obsessed.
Then it was time for a road trip. JL and I had a 2 night event, so we packed our bags and threw them in the car…along with our friends!!
And then Atlanta.
And a Sunday morning at Passion City Church.
Then we had a really special convo…
the secret service!
A few weeks went by and then it was time to travel home for Thanksgiving break…praise the Lord!
Mom and T were the only ones in town the day we got in, so they picked us up and we have a wonderful weekend in Delhi with those two…plus a lot of kitties.
We headed over to West Monroe and I got to see Brighton for the first time in months!
The next few days were filled with homemade pizza, pottery-making, and research paper-writing.
and Emma Jenkins. Thank God for Emma Jenkins.
We had three Thanksgiving meals.
I am sure I gained like 5 pounds.
night before Thanksgiving with the Robertson side
Thanksgiving lunch with the Howard side
including a million pictures and learning how to “hit the Quan”
Thanksgiving night was spent decorating the tree!!
and she is my favorite little elf in the whole wide world 🙂
post thanksgiving we tried to get in some exercise before thanksgiving meal #3 in Delhi with my side of the family haha
LOVE THESE PEOPLE
I have GOT to share a few of these because I know Kel won’t.
But Kelly asked me to take some Senior pictures for her over break. Besides the hundreds of mosquito bites we received we had a blast-just me and her.
And yea, she’s a babe.
But this is what we’ve been up to lately! And YES we do go to school despite what some people have thought haha. We even work for our school too. We love it. We love our friends, our co-workers, our professors.
