We had such an (almost) perfect weekend! I went to bed last night thinking that I am pretty blessed to be able to be here in this season and am very thankful. Not to say that there aren’t tough spots…because there definitely are! But this little face sure helps as do other good people in my life!
Yeahhh…I like him!
I started Saturday off with a great run/walk! I ran a mile in 9:15 (with Asher & the stroller!!) so that was pretty exciting and then we walked about 2 more miles. Plus, the weather was that perfect mix of summer and fall. We were able to get up early enough to enjoy the morning while still having the rest of the day. Our Saturday afternoon included reading books while Asher napped. I finally have started the final book in the Wheel of Time series and I am loving remembering all the characters as well as the plot lines. I am glad to have a fun fiction book to read! I’m hoping to try out one of JoJo Moyes books next since I keep hearing such good things about them. My husband has been enjoying some of Brandon Sanderson’s books, which are also fun reads.
This Sunday was the last one before I jump into the fall schedule with our 1-6th graders. I am looking forward to getting back to teaching. I have missed hanging out with the kiddos on Sunday mornings, but I have so loved being in service and hanging out as a family during church (for the most part…I mean the husband drums so we aren’t together the full service, but we take what we can get!). I’ve gathered some fun curriculums and will be going over them this week in prep for Sunday. Any great curriculums or lessons that you guys love to use?
Later in the afternoon, we got together with some friends for a hike/walk at a nearby park. I am thankful for friends in a similar life stage who have babies close in age to Asher. While they can’t really play together, it’s still fun to take out the strollers and get outside.
Dinner, Asher’s bedtime, ice cream (mmm, Breyer’s natural vanilla bean is our choice lately if we don’t splurge on Ben & Jerry’s) , and good conversations ended our night.
Asher is not quite sure what to think of the vibrations from the electric toothbrush during bath time. Ha!
Here goes to tackling another week!
How was your weekend?
