Good monday to you, friends!
I hope that your weekend was a relaxing one.
Ours was cram packed, but in a good way…
The new edition of our Book of Days is pretty much done. After some minor tying of loose ends it will be up for sale tomorrow. I know I say this every month, but this is my favorite edition yet! I'm crazy excited to share it with you!
We bought ourselves flowers to commemorate the close of a flower laden issue. I know they're common as the day is long, but daisies just make me smile every blessed time I look at 'em.
We also got the pleasure of attending my oldest son's fiddle recital this weekend. This boy does not like to be the center of attention, and the song was a hard one for him. PLUS it was his first time playing with a piano accompaniment, so nerves were running pretty high.
He did Sir Bach proud though, and his Mama and Papa, brothers and grandparents too.
In honor of his achievement we presented him with a little trophy and let all the boys pick out a pint of Blue Bell and a movie. (For you southern folks, have you SEEN the Blackberry Cobbler or Orange Cooler -think Dreamsicle- flavors in stores? All I can say is DANG they're good!)
And as if that weren't enough, the boys all finished out their year of AWANA this weekend. For those of you who don't know, this is a kids club at our church. Part of the point of the club is scripture memory. I'm going to do a little shameless bragging on my men now. Feel free to roll your eyes…. My older two were the only ones in their classes who finished the book, then redid the entire thing for a special "review patch" to wear on their vests and THEN did an extra workbook to earn a pin. It was a BIG deal and a LOT of work. I'm ridiculously proud of them.
In honor of THAT accomplishment, we're going to have ourselves a "downtown day" today. We'll troll the museums, ride a city bus, and maybe walk around the big Whole Foods with our mouths hanging open over it' awe-inspiring bigness.
I'm worn out already!
I hope you guys have lots to celebrate today and that the week ahead of you is full of good times too.
See you back here tomorrow!
There's a post up at the Ranch today too!
