Just dropped Ava off at school for her kindergarten assessment. Nina is talking to herself in her crib. Have to pick Ava up at 2:45. Nina will probably fall asleep at 2:30.
Great weekend. My friend Tammy got married on Saturday. She was so beautiful. It was fun to reconnect with some people from high school. I tend to avoid that sort of thing (long story) but it’s not all about me, is it? Saturday was a HUGE day for Tams, and I’m so glad I was able to go. Livi and Ava went with me.
We went to the zoo on Sunday. After church and a nap. It was hot.
Went to Gabe’s grandpa’s house for a cook-out yesterday. Lots of little people–including a 6-day-old. Sooo cute, that little Brady. The kids (nine of them, six and under) think it’s fun to play with plastic cups in the gravel driveway. They sit there forever and fill up the cups with their hands and pour the contents all over themselves. They were grey from head to toe when it was all said and done. Jamie popped by for a surprise visit, and Erik and Eden fit right in. They loved the gator rides. Fun day.
Our first soccer game is tonight. I’m determined to enjoy each one and not say things like, “One down, nineteen to go.” Keeping track of Nina while watching a soccer game = impossible. I’ll do my best.
I think I mentioned that I’ve been trying to enjoy life and my family in the midst of all this stressful writing/school starting/soccer stuff. It’s working. Except that my deadlines are looming and I don’t have a whole lot of writing to show for it. I’m considering begging for extensions.
Please pray for my sister Bethany and her husband Stew this week. Stew’s getting a CT scan and colonoscopy. He’s been soooo sick lately. Pray that the doctors find a real problem with a do-able solution, so that Stew can get back to normal for the first time in a looooong time. Thank you!
I haven’t gotten the books from Harvest House yet. I’ll mail them out as soon as they come.
Have a great day!
