Monday? Already?

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.
