Happy Monday! I hope your week is off to a great start.
Saturday morning I was up at the crack of dawn to hit some yard sales with a friend from church. A couple of hours and $8 later, here's what I ended up with: 4 Thomas Kinkade puzzles (the larger box has 3 puzzles in it), a vintage Tupperware food carrier, an etched glass plate, a bunny flag, and 2 pairs of BRAND NEW
sandals. How often do you find brand new shoes in your size at a yard sale? The sandals were definitely the best buy of the day.
I still had time left after going to the yard sales to do my weekly grocery shopping without any kids with me. I was able zoom down the store aisles in record time. :-) The rest of Saturday was spent playing with the kids and finishing up my Sunday school lesson.
Sunday's services were a blessing. I'm so glad that I attend a church where the Word of God is preached! We had three first-time visitors, so it looks like I'll be busy baking cookies tomorrow.
We experienced a family milestone during the evening service. Lil' Nut promoted from the nursery and joined us in "big church". She was very excited and felt so grown-up! Although she did a really good job staying quiet during the preaching, I only caught snippets of the sermon because I was keeping a close eye on my wiggle worm. I'm always a bit nervous when we begin training our little ones to sit quietly through the service. Daddy doesn't get to help much with the process since he's busy preaching. :-) The folks sitting behind us were so kind and said Lil' Nut didn't bother them a bit. For the first time in 9 years, I no longer have a child in the church nursery. I guess we're now officially a family of big kids.
This week I have several tasks to accomplish on my to-do list. I'm going to try to finish my spring cleaning. The kitchen, children's bedrooms, guest bathroom, and porches still need some attention. I would also like to spend some time working in the garden if the weather cooperates.
I hope you all have a blessed week!
