This was a good weekend.
Friday was Grandparent’s Day at our school, so Mee-Maw, Grammy, and Pappy all came to the school to see our kiddos do their thing. 🙂 My class did a good job-whew! I was worried after our practice on Thursday. Jack’s class did great, too. He knows all the books of the Bible, and I didn’t even know it! Love that #jecak. Grandparent’s day is also a half day, so the kiddos went home with Grammy and Pappy to play while I got some work done.
After I finished working, I went to their house, too, and talked to my mom for 2 hours straight. We just don’t get to see each other enough, so when we do, it is like a marathon of catching up. Neither of us can hardly catch a breath. 🙂 Mom made chili for dinner, and Jake came after his soccer scrimmage. The kiddos ended up spending the night. 🙂
I must have needed it, because I slept for TWELVE hours Friday night. Went to sleep at 10, didn’t wake up until 10. Looked out the window when I finally got up, and saw a bit of snow on the trees and the cars. I didn’t realize it had actually snowed a significant amount until I got on FB and saw the pictures everyone had posted- HA! I slept right through it, and it melted before I woke up! 🙂 Good thing the kiddos were with Pappy, because he is an early riser, so they got to play in it before it melted. 🙂
Saturday afternoon I picked up the kiddos and took them ice skating with Josie’s Sunday school class. They both love to ice skate, and they did great. This was Jack’s first time to not get a scooter at all. It took him just a little bit to remember what he was doing, and then he was off! And making all kinds of goofy faces as he did it…
Josie was too busy and fast for me to get many pictures of her!
Today after church we went to Swaney Swift’s Burgers in Gallatin- it was so delicious! We had heard good reviews, and wanted to check it out. After that we headed over to the Gallatin Civic Center so I could get some swimming practice in for my triathlon training. The kids were thrilled to get to swim, too! They both did great, although I think Jack’s lips turned a little blue. The water was FREEZING today. All went great at the swimming pool, until the very end when I was telling Jo to get out….and DROPPED.MY.PHONE.IN.THE.WATER. Yep, you read that right. Only me. I am a klutz with a capital K. It is currently sitting in a bowl of rice on my counter. Hopefully it can be revived. After showers in the locker room, we came home and enjoyed the rest of our afternoon together.
It was a good weekend. Not nearly long enough, but good. I love this little family my God has blessed me with, and all the many, many blessings He has poured forth for us. I never, ever, want to take it for granted, but I know I do. Here’s to being supremely thankful for HIM.
