For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Today was a beautiful day to spend together! We all got up in a timely manner, got ready, and made it to church on time. The "hairiest" part was getting everyone into the van...some into car-seats and some buckled in with seatbelts. Everyone seemed in a stupor about so many piling into one van. We kept encouraging children to move, to get buckled, to let the littles into their seats... everyone just stood looking at one another. It was like a comedy of errors. Brad and I managed to move kids into their proper seats, and then we were off... still can't believe we got to church in time for Sunday school :) !    

           After church, we returned home to finish up the lunch meal and eat. I had all the kiddos go outside until we had dinner on the table. They were having so much fun that we had to stop their play to get them to wash their hands and to sit down to eat. Once the meal was done, it was off to play outside again. I had them stay outdoors to enjoy the beautiful sunshiny day. They played, explored, jumped on the trampoline, created and invented new games, and just all around enjoyed their time together.

 We called them in at about 5pm to get baths, do homework, and eat (yeah for leftovers!). We read books. The kiddos had 30 min. of silent reading and...I started Charlotte's Web as a read aloud for these two weeks.  They seemed captivated, even the little ones, until we had been sitting 30 minutes and some were trying to avoid falling asleep. So, we stopped there and will resume our story tomorrow. Everyone was off to bed ...Springing forward that hour and playing outside made for some very tired children...most were out within a few minutes of being in bed. All of the kids are anxiously awaiting pictures of their baby brother...
