Did I mention snow day, part 2 was spent very much like snow day, part 1? Good times.
After the whole Dash debacle I put on my rain boots to wear and I noticed someone (a boy to remain nameless) broke them that morning when they put them on to take out the dog. Shoot. I may or may not have sent Fred a text that said, "Is everyone in this house trying to ruin everything that I have?!?" Goodness.
I ate lunch with this sweet boy this week when I volunteered at his school. He ate his lunch and then part of mine. A good time was had by all.
While I was at his school I passed this bulletin board. The character word for the month is citizenship. Each class votes for the person in their class that exhibits this characteristic the most.
The next day I went to Clayton's school to work on this monster bulletin board. It was huge. I actually worked on it two days. The second day I took Andrew. He was a big helper. The bulletin board is not finished, but it's close.
After all of our hard work at Clayton's school Andrew and I met a friend at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants. Yummers. Worth all the hard work.
Well...whoops. My bad. We did find out later that he wasn't the only person to enter. One or two grandparents said, "At least he took the initiative to enter." Yeah...so about that...it was extra credit for him because he was very close to a B and just wanted to ensure he made an A...so there's that.
I have to stop a minute to just discuss how faithful God has been. It flooded over me this week. About 15 months ago we moved our crew from the only home they've known. It broke my heart. I wondered if they would get lost in the shuffle of a bigger city. God heard my concern and confirmed to me this week that he is faithful. Always.
We celebrated the "Month of the Shackelfords" by going to Overton Park to Belly Acres and then to Sweet Noshings for a sweet treat. It was a good time.
Jack had a big day. Not only was Fred there in the morning, but Renee came to eat lunch and then be the mystery reader. She even brought Sonic. Good day indeed!
Here's a shout out to a new friend, that reads my blog, Lindsay. Praying for you and your family as you transition to Costa Rica. May God continue to bless you and your family!
