We had a fun, relaxing weekend with family and friends!
Friday we had Rachel, L's birthsister, with us for the day. It was a fun time. The kids played in L's room, we went out to eat lunch, and then spent the afternoon at the park. For the first time, N (big brother) was not included in the relationship. Rachel and L are beginning to develop their own special time. It's wonderful to see.
Saturday morning, we went to the egg hunt at our church. It was fun to see all the kiddos excited about hunting eggs and playing with their friends. Saturday afternoon, I took N to play glow-in-the-dark PutPut while Lance took L for some special daddy/daughter time. It was fun to have some one on one time with N - we got to have some more indepth conversations that usually occur when little sister is around!
Saturday afternoon, we met our adult SS class at the Nantucket lake for a time of fishing/picnicing. N has LOTS of fun fishing with Lance and the "Big Kids" - he is a good patient, fisherman, which really surprises me since his personality is usually so active! But this is something special that he and Lance enjoy doing together. I chased L around to make sure she didn't end up in the lake! We followed the "big girls" around and L tried to do what they were doing. It was fun to enjoy the time of fellowship with other families from our church.
Today was a day of worship and Bible Study followed by lunch out. Then Lance and I took the kids to see "Horton Hears a Who". After the movie, Lance and N headed out to our Castlegate lake for more fishing!
All in all a great time of celebration of God's love and mercy on our lives.
This week, we are back to soccer practice for soccer season and on the road to the end of the school year!
