400 feet below ground...loving the mud, darkness, and a group of 10 boys in their element: My favorite one!!
A beautiful underground world:
Tucking it in after a full day...sleeping with the bats...
Owen and I went caving in Chattanooga at Raccoon Mtn this past weekend with his troop. About 20 parents and kids were in our group, and we had a blast. As Owen said at about 200 ft below, "I was born for this!" :-) After 3 hours of army crawling, jumping, climbing, splashing, and looking for bats and salamanders, we climbed out, kind of got cleaned up and set up camp. We got to sleep in the cave and that was really thrilling, but I ain't gonna lie, I was sore the next morning. But memories were made and fun was created...good times!!
a Carolina girl by heart, a broken but beautiful vessel in the eyes of her Father, a devoted wife learning to serve her beloved in new ways, a momma to four children; three with us and one waiting in Heaven, and a grateful girl that enjoys everything from writing in a quiet nook to the swirling buzz of life in my home.
