This Weekend

holy experience

This weekend I...

and my family received exciting news of the next step in our adoption.

enjoyed a beautiful evening outside with three beautiful and special homeschooling Mamas whom I also call my friends.

     We shared. Alot. Delicious food, some wine, joys, trials, and thoughts.

     We laughed. Alot. Sometimes until tears rolled down our faces.

     We managed not to cry :o).

     I am blessed and thankful for these women who get me.

swam in the pool with my husband and children.

swam in the pool after dark with my husband.

enjoyed a fun photo shoot at our clients' beautiful property.

spent some time sewing.

spent some time crocheting.

shared our joy with some of our church family.

went shopping with my three daughters.

worked in the vegetable garden.

was thrilled that my husband finished laying our flooring in the basement.

started tidying up a basement that has needed it for a loooooong time.

enjoyed cranking up the praise and worship music while working around the house.

did not watch the FIFA final.

marveled at the blue skies often filled with spectacular fluffy clouds.

  8. Love this, Deborah.

    We were just running errands today (Lily had written up a "to do" list, which she insisted we needed) when Lily said, "Mommy, this is just turning out to be such a great day together." And she was right.

    Cool when just running errands with your six year old can be so much fun.

  9. what a joy packed post, Deborah.
    And I'm peeking below and seeing that they are holding the girls for you!!!
