Last week the rest of school went swimmingly. I actually went to school 2 of the 3 days to eat lunch with the girls. What can I say? It really couldn’t have been a better start to the school year. I just hope Independence day when the girls have to walk themselves in will go just as well. That’s when Emma REALLY had the issues in K. Emma says she’s going to walk Lexi to her class and then go to hers so yay for awesome big sisters.
Friday night and Saturday morning I had to work so it was just laundry and general putzing around the house. Saturday my niece came over for a few hours and we ended up in the pool. Saturday evening we ate with Mom and Dad and then all ventured over to Trader Joe’s for the first time. After putting a call out on Twitter and Facebook we were directed to lots of yummys that we’ve been taste-testing over the weekend. My favorite so far are
But seriously? They are only like 3” long. They are like baby ice cream bars. Come on, TJ!
Last night my niece stayed with us and we all went to church today after Scott got the day off. We randomly picked a restaurant to eat at since kids eat free and ran into some family friends. We ended up eating with them and having a nice lunch. This afternoon I spent some time with the girls with their pottery wheel which Emma has been begging me to do all week. We were able to turn some very small, uneven bowls. I think the girls are happy with them which is all that matters.
This evening we made a huge step and joined our church at their Partner class. I really think Satan was using fear once again to keep me from going. I got so nervous about sharing my testimony they had us write out. I have no idea. It’s a very simple, non-glamorous story. Well, very glamorous in what He did, but not drama-filled. Anyway, I was nervous the whole afternoon, almost backing out even though there was no indication we’d even have to share our story with others. After some serious prayers, I felt the YES I needed and off we went. I’m super-excited to finally make it official. Not as if we haven’t already been committed but now we literally have signed on the dotted line (AND didn’t have to share our stories to the large group). I’m ecstatic to see how God will use us there (as long as it’s not sharing my testimony to a large group. I KID!).
So tomorrow morning I’m off to the gym after school drop-off for the first time in months. I’ve really slacked since the pool has been opened. Who wants to give that up for a sweaty gym? I seriously have to buckle down again but I say that every August, don’t I?
