PS-I think calling a dishwasher "pretty" officially qualifies me as an adult. Boo.
Sunday we had a baby shower for our sweet friends. Our quilting ministry made a quilt for them and presented it to them. Sweet Baby N will make his appearance some time in November. I cannot wait!
As we were getting ready for school Monday morning I remembered that Andrew needed to take a bag of mini marshmellows to his teacher for some kind of project they are working on. I told him to take them to school and I think he thought that big bag was his snack. He said, "I know you are just teasing me, because I cannot eat an entire bag of mini marshmellows." Fred and I were rolling!!
Later that morning Fred and I got to witness an adoption for a sweet family. It was a glorious day as that sweet boy became a permanent member of their family. It was a precious moment.
Tuesday I had a minor medical procedure that left me feeling like Tuesday was a black hole. Thank goodness for friends and family that helped, offered to help, brought food, prayed, and kept our village alive and moving while I was down.
Aunt Janice came in to help get everyone to school, which is no small undertaking. She even had lunch with the boys. She took lunch to the middle schooler. She did not stay to eat with him. No, she did not.
The next day, which I really don't know what to call it...Mimi was here. She got to go to lunch with the boys as well. One of them commented that this was the "best week ever". I'm glad they thought so. My "best week ever" contains a few more memories. Ha! Having Janice and Mimi here was a treat though!
Those are some happy boys, right?!? Who wouldn't be, is my question!!
My sweet friend, Melanie, led my Wednesday night book study. I felt like standing up and wearing something other than yoga pants would be prerequisites to leading a book study. Since neither of those were in my day, I figured I should get a sub. While I was at home, I got these sweet selfies. Is she not the best?!?
Speaking of people being the best...this guy...
Friday morning we got to go to Ram Run at Jack and Andrew's school. Ram Run is a fund raiser that Oak has every year. They are supposed to get sponsors for running, but we really just end up writing a check. The boys really love it though. Each time they pass the start line they get a rubber band. Well, that's the plan. Andrew did not run much. He just walked around the track and picked up everybody's rubber bands that they dropped. Good times.
