It seems like this week zipped by before I knew it! It was a nice one though and I look forward to the new one that starts tomorrow!
It went something like this around here this week:
Sunday after church, we were invited to bring a picnic lunch and go to our pastor's house for lunch. He told us that his family was inviting a "few" families over to picnic on their land. When we arrived, there was already about 6 families there, with their stuff spread out on the lawn. After about thirty minutes, 10 to 12 more families arrived! I think it's safe to say there was more than a "few" of us! It was wonderful! I sat on a blanket and talked to some of the ladies from church while Caroline was off in the creek with the smaller kids and Logan was sitting at a table with some older girls playing Mad Libs. Jeff was sitting around chatting with some of the men and I enjoyed watching him be so relaxed. It was such a wonderful, relaxing time of fellowship!
Monday night, Caroline had a ballet recital at a local senior assisted living facility. Many of the students from Trinity Arts Center showed up and participated in some way. Some students played piano while others expressed themselves through some sort of dance. Some of the dances included Jewish worship dance, Scottish dancing, ballet, and some of the smaller children did a bean bag dance! There was also some violin playing. I felt like I was having an out of body experience as I watched my Caroline, who is 8 1/2, during the ballet portion of the program. Her body language seemed so mature but her face couldn't hide that huge smile she seems to always wear. All of the children did a wonderful job and Mrs. Tanya, the ballet instructor, did a wonderful job putting this together. It was so wonderful to see the room of older residents there enjoying themselves as they watched the children.
Wednesday, the roof on our new deck went up. Well, the plywood for the roof went up. We still have to get shingles put on, as soon as there is nice weather. It's coming along nicely and is going to be a wonderful place to entertain! I can't wait. We got our weekly dose of Lost on Wednesday night and that was about it.
Tuesday and Thursday were pretty normal. Nothing much happened besides ballet class for Caroline on both these evenings. Oh, I did forget that on Thursday, I bought Lord of the Rings Online for Jeff! He was pretty excited when I brought it home!
Friday was pretty quiet. Jeff and I went to Moto for some Japanese food. We came home afterwards and just took it easy. He's had a busy week at work so it was nice to just relax and do nothing.
I've recruited a couple of friends to do a Bible study with me. My friends Kasi and Jenny are going to join me in reading The Excellent Wife by Martha Peace. We're going to read on our own and answer the questions from the study guide. We plan on getting together (either every two weeks or once a month) to discuss what we've read and our answers to the questions. I've read some of the book and it's really good. I'm looking forward to doing this study with these gals.
I'm looking forward to scrapbooking today or making some cards. Since it's chilly outside, I think I'll put something in the crockpot for supper! I hope your week has been wonderful! To read more WR's, check out Judi's place!
