|Headed to the mall for new tap shoes and a trip to the candy store|
There was a break in the rain and those left at the home front were in need of a little fresh air. There's nothing better than the beach post rain, so we headed down.
On our way home we were pleasantly surprised to see the Farmer's Market was set up despite the rain. We stocked up on strawberries and some home made tortilla chips for football watchin' the next day.
|am i the only one inspired to eat healthy by these vibrant colors??|
The evening went on wonderfully. I was able to look past the messy kitchen and appreciate the home cooked meal and all of us around the table.
|please note juliana, she was our evening entertainment|
We made my mom's brownies from scratch. One word, divine.
I was still holding my breath that the stomach flu had passed, but as we all know the "flow" must come. The natural flow of life or in this case the flow of vomit, again. We came home from a highly successful morning at church (me wearing make-up, coffee beforehand, arriving on time and Samantha staying in the nursery for both services) and then I heard the familiar words, "mommy, my tummy hurts."
Poor Juliana. I thought she had made it through unscathed. She laid on the couch with a bowl beside her all day, we missed Sunday dinner at my parent's and then early this morning Daddy got sick too. Daddy who had to leave before 5 for the airport and spend all day flying. Daddy who took a sick day when I was sick to take care of the kids was toughing it out on an airplane. Have I mentioned how much we love our daddy? If you think of Drake, pray for him.
Looking forward to a little more "ebb" this week. When all else fails though I have much to fall back on. The good outweighs the bad and the bad makes us stronger. Just ask James, "Consider it pure joy my brothers whenever you face trials of any kind..." I'm loving my study on this book of the Bible by the way and I'm loving all the lovely ladies I'm studying it with...there's some ebb. Here's a little more...
Happy Monday all!
