Is it Saturday already?
My kids were on spring break this week, so it’s been a little… ahem, busy around my house.
Insane might be a better word. Plungers were used. Dog vomit was extracted. Band-aids were applied.
Pretty much what you’d expect with a house this full. And some uncooperative weather.
This year we opted not to do a whole lot for spring break. Not a lotta dough to go on a vacation. Not a lotta time for Chris to take off work.
But we did have some fun. Made a ridiculous contraption with scissors, crayons, three rolls of tape, a skateboard and a huge cardboard box. Played outside (when the weather relented) until we were dirty from head to toe. Drank lots and lots of cherry Kool-Aid. Watched “How to Train Your Dragon” three times. And broke in a new box of Apples to Apples.
Good thing the bar is set pretty low around here. Leaves a lot more room for doing things that Jesus wants us to do.
And – just in time for Easter – look who is home?
I soooo love having my biggest boy home.
Counting my blessings this Easter.
Revving up for some serious egg-stuffing, church-going, and Pioneer Woman’s sweet-potato making in the next 24 hours. As well as some precious reflection on the true meaning of Easter.
P.S. I am looking for a few of y’all who have donated. If you’ve donated, but haven’t heard from me, or do not have your numbers yet, please contact me.
