Sunday afternoon was absolutely beautiful. I knew it was going to rain quite a bit this week, but I
Fred was at the hospital with a precious church member when we the boys and I began. He didn't know if he would make it. Around mile 1 I looked over my shoulder and this guy was running to catch up with us. Sweetest sight ever.
Andrew brought a backpack to carry a water bottle and a stuffed animal. Of course. Please note who is carrying the back pack. Yes, that would be me.
One night this week I was having a very frank discussion with the boys about not doing something that I asked them to do. I got a little upset so I went upstairs to seek forgiveness from my oldest. While I was trying to talk to him, Andrew kept calling my name. He called my name about 6 times before I said (in a very loud tone!), "Andrew! I'm trying to talk to Clayton. I have been ignoring you, because we are in the middle of a discussion. Give me a minute!" I finished up with Clayton and headed into Andrew's room. He looked at me over his glasses and said, "Mom, I have two things." Please envision him holding up two fingers and looking at me over his glasses. He then said, "Number one. (Now one finger.) When I say mom, I want you to say what. Second thing (now two fingers.) Can I turn my light on so I can read a book?' The fingers, looking over the glasses, and telling me I should say "what" when I call his name about did me in. All I could do was laugh. Have mercy.
I serve on the PTO at Clayton's school. They gave Clayton a reimbursement check for me and he lost it. We dove head first into his backpack/the black hole. We were up to our elbows in papers and we still didn't find it. BUT...as he was digging, he did find this...
Friday, I met up with a friend from Paris. We used to run and work out together. So, we decided to meet up in the middle of our two cities and try a Yoga class. It was so fun. We even had lunch together and shopped a little. We should have gotten a picture, but we did not. Bummer. Before we left we put our next yoga date on the calendar. I'm going to be counting down the days until we meet up again!
