Monday, Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters
Good morning and Happy Monday!

~I almost always begin the week a bit tired... life in ministry doesn't allow for the weekends to be times of rest or relaxation, but they are most always filled with tons of people we love and time encountering God. It's a worthy trade-off!

~ My boy is loving t-ball. So far (unlike with soccer) there hasn't been any talk of quitting, so that's progress! He loves the hat but refuses to wear the team t-shirt. I think this secretly makes his non-conformist daddy proud.

~I love seeing my littles with their friends. I love the hand-holding of little girls while they play, and Remy and his buddies become ninjas every time they see each other. On one hand I can't believe how big they seem, but on the other I'm so thankful that we are surrounded by so many awesome families.

~Speaking of friends, Remy attended a birthday party on Saturday of one of his friends from school. The party was at Monkey Joe's~ have you heard of this place?! It's filled with inflatables, and the insanity was almost more than this momma could handle. It was a dark rainy Saturday, so that meant everyone in town decided to go... Needless to say, my boy spent a looooooonngg time in the tub when we got home. But he had so much fun~ another worthy trade-off!

~My tea party was on Saturday! I'll try to get some pictures up tomorrow. It was a dark rainy day, so we were forced inside, but it was so much fun to spend some agenda-free time with some friends of my own with no one asking us to clean anything up, chauffeur them anywhere, or wipe hands or noses.

~Today is zoo day with Remy's class, and it looks like the rain has stopped. The sun is finally shining! We've yet to explore the zoo here, so I'm as excited as the littles, I think!  

What are your plans for the day, lovelies? I'll be back soon!


  1. glad to hear you had a good weekend. It is sweet to see the kids playing with their friends and watching those friendships grow. Looking forward to your tea party pics. Have fun at the zoo!

  2. Sounds like our weekends are much alike. Since I work at my church, I am expected to be at all of the weekend stuff. I love it, but last night before I went to Bible study class all I wanted to do was lay on the couch eating popcorn and ice cream. But I wouldn't trade this life for anything. To be with other like-minded people is the highlight of my day, next to being with God! Have a great week.

  3. I remember those days. I also remember the attempts to set up another day for Sabbath rest. Hard to do, but so important - to have family fun times, special couple time & some kind of day off for you personally. Not that you can manage all of those in the same week... But finding some down time is so vital! AND sets a great example for the people to whom we minister!

  4. Oh, I definitely get times of rest, but it usually comes on a different day... weekends are typically packed morning to bedtime.


I love to hear what you have to say~ Thanks for leaving your mark!
