This weekend was a whirlwind of activity. I think I may need another weekend to recover.
Saturday was Beans’s birthday party. We had invited three neighbor girls. They were given invitations with their names on the front. I just want to make that clear. Because we had SIX kids show up. One of the extras was a neighbor boy that we haven’t seen much of since school started. I was okay with him because my son loves to play with him and he’s such a polite boy. The other two extras were cousins of one of the invitees. They were toddlers. They only speak spanish. Um. Ooookay. Every once in a while the aunt (who only speaks spanish) would pop over to check on them, smile, and go back home. Ooookay. The kids had a blast and Beans was grinning ear to ear the whole time. So really, who am I to complain?
Sunday was the official church vote on accepting me for the children’s director position. We were asked to leave the room while they voted but apparently there was a pretty loud YEA and no NAYs. I don’t know that I’ve ever hugged so many people on a Sunday morning. It still amazes me that we’re there. On our own – it’s not a church we would’ve picked to call home. But God is so much wiser 🙂 He knew where we needed to be. Thank You.
Sunday night is Awana night for kids ages 3 through 5th grade. Which means…… all three of our kids can go to Awana. Which leaves my hubby and I childless for an hour and a half. We didn’t waste a minute dropping them off and getting out of there!! Our first date since August! I felt kind of naked walking across the parking lot without a small hand in my own. But I got over it.
Just before bed I received a call informing me that I have two meetings today. Guess I’m jumping right in. I’m looking forward to it. I’m anxious to get a couple of things rolling. I just need to figure out if I have time to get coffee before the first meeting this morning.
