Today is the 3rd grade all-day field trip, and daughter and husband are dropped off at school (he’s chaperoning) and I have an hour to myself this morning. No one using the laptop to play Webkinz world or Animal Jam. I’m having an extra cup of coffee this morning and a little blog time.
Here’s some updates. . .
Money… We completed the major exterior home improvements that we saved for over an entire year. The house looks great and we were able to do it debt free by budgeting and being focused on saving.
God… We tried a new church closer to our home, and frankly, with services that weren’t as early in the morning! We are LOVING our new church home. My daughter found many schoolmates in their Sunday School and signed up for Vacation Bible School this summer. Blessed!
Fun . . . Had a great Mother’s Day, despite having a cold virus. My gift was a Webkinz Signature English Spot Bunny. I named her Beatrix, after Miss Beatrix Potter. This is the perfect bunny… no chewing, no pooping.
Amazed… I saw an eagle this week! I live blocks from one of the Great Lakes. I looked up at a condo and sitting on top was a huge stocky bird as big as a 4 year old!! We have lots of hawks around, and this was no hawk. I read that eagles do migrate and this one was likely making the journey to Canada or Upper Michigan. Birds use the lakes as a migration highway.
Reading… “Grace: More Than We Deserve, Greater Than We Imagine” by Max Lucado. Love all his writing.
Well, time to get ready for work. The third and fourth grades are on all-day field trips so it is going to be a quiet day in the school cafeteria!
