Shaun was home to watch the kids and it was just too beautiful to not take my run outside. Have I mentioned how in love I am with September?? :)
What a gift to have a swim day this late in September!
Such a beautiful sky at soccer practice!
Let the morning bring me word of Your unfailing love.
While the crew was sound-checking and warming up, H and I snuck over to the athletic shoe store to get him fitted for running shoes. Many years ago, my brother in law taught me the merits of quality running shoes, made specifically for my type of foot and updated regularly.
Now that H has shown he will stick with cross country, I wanted him to have good shoes, too.
So much soccer in our lives!
Aiden played in his very first real game, which he thinks is SOO much better than baby micro soccer.
I can't even take him in his little uniform!
Tear down after nine show in four cities in five weeks. What an amazing thing to be a part of! Also, we're tired! ;)
We took our new running shoes for a spin together.
After the anniversary party on Friday, Tim and Elizabeth took a bunch of kids to sleep at my mom's campground. They woke up the next morning with the sun, ready to throw rocks in the river, play with the campfire and all the other shenanigans little boys are apt to do.
Amy, on the other hand had mostly girls sleep over so there was a dance competition with contestants and judges.
Later, we met at my house and were treated to Tony's pizza, a must when we have out of state guests. People say there's nothing like it.
Then Sunday we donned our t-shirts (that are getting small on many) and we did Lobster Fest, which is a little bit of prep work and a lot of hanging out. Here's how the day went:
Vegetarians we are not. :)
My brother, freshly graduated from a very intense two weeks of Air Assault School, something that makes basic training look like a walk in the park. I admire the man he is both professionally and personally.
We are not perfect, but God is gracious. SOO thankful for all these people and another year.
I am married to the man of my dreams, my best friend, and together we have two little girls and a boy. My desire is that this blog and my everyday life will bring glory to God.
I thank God for all I've been given at the end of everyday...I have been blessed.
