The weekend that was...

So the weekend wasn't as crazy as I anticipated.. YAY ;o)

Friday night I some girlfriends over to watch Dirty Dancing. ;o) One even dressed up as Baby and carried a water melon. If you haven't seen the movie that wouldn't make sense, but I loved it. It was great fun just sit around with the girls munching popcorn and enjoying girl time.

Saturday was a quiet day actually didn't do a whole heck of a lot, and it was SO wonderful. We did take the boys up to the local park where they were having a Lumber Jack competition. They thought it was too cool!

"Dat Kewl" is E's new phrase, that and "What you sayin sucka" ... that one was daddy's. (roll of the eyes here) He was so cute though when we were leaving the park he said "tank you momma" I asked him why he was saying thank you and he said "for takin trasmore" (the name of the park is Mt Trashmore because it's a converted trash heap. It's a true trash to treasure ;o))

N is reverting to some acting out behaviors again. I had thought him being in his own school with his own space would be a good thing for him. But now that he's seen E's Pre-K, N has decided I think that E's space is better. He's not being over the top, just acting out more and doing all those things he knows he's not supposed to.... Any suggestions?

I went to Z's church to listen to a great speaker about being a world changer. He was fantastic! I had been feeling a bit down thinking about the fundraising we still have to do, and about the vision I have for the women's village/place... and wanting some answers from God. And while I didn't get a knock in the head answer, He did give me a bit of peace and a bit of fire. IT was good stuff.

I did have to rest from running over the weekend because I was feeling pain in my shins. I did have someone tell me that if I can do half the distance of the 10k I can do the whole thing. That's encouraging, although I am still working towards running the whole distance before the marathon...lol

This is another week of crazy appointments. It seems as though we have something every night. This weekend is a celebration down at the oceanfront, I think D and I will be working the K-Love tent for a couple of hours. I am looking forward to that. I think it will be great fun ;o) As long the weather is good.

This Thursday is also our next Mission Team meeting. I am really looking forward to meeting again. It feels like it's been forever since the last meeting.

Please continue to pray for Silas and his family! It's been such a roller coaster ride for them. God has performed some amazing miracles, but they are still struggling with his healing. He is a precious sweet boy.

Have a Better than Good Monday.

I don't watch hardly any movies but dirty dancing has got to be one of my favs. I totally get the water melon and it cracks me up thinking about it. I bet that was so fun getting together with the girls. So sorry about N. Funny your asking for suggestions because I am gonna have to stalk your blog to read peoples answers since I am facing the same with Biruk, not in school but at home. I hope I can tune in to the mission meeting this week. That would be really exciting. I am still praying for Silas and his family.
