We usually start off the week bright and early! Our oldest daughter drops her children off on the way to work… around 7-ish and I hit the floor running.
Today was a little bit slower. I had a text on my phone when I got up today; she was telling me I wouldn’t have the kids. I was still planning on having Easton—His momma took The Honey for his labs in Palestine; getting ready for his check up on Friday. She is going back to school to finish out her degree and becoming an RN—so she and her dad stopped off at the U.T. campus there—she talked to a counselor and picked up some schedules and pre-requisite forms. I’m glad she is finishing up—it is going to be hard the next 2 1/2 years—but I’m very proud of her for doing it. Having her and her family living here on our property will be good too, I will be able to continue helping with the boys… including the new baby. ;)
While Honey was gone —I took Easton and we went to the FEED STORE—for dog food and chicken feed. Came home –unloaded. We let the chickens out and checked for eggs, then he and I walked around the yard… picking up and dumping out any standing water that would be a breeding ground for mosquitoes.
That’s important this time of year!
On Sunday, All the kids were here yesterday for the Easter activities. The Newlyweds, the girls and their families, our oldest son and family; and also My Dad, youngest brother and his boys! A full house! We started out with rain early in the morning before sun up—I thought an egg hunt would be a wash out… but no.
The rain stopped long enough for the guys to hide them and the kids to hunt them… and then back to drizzling.
I think it was our first ever—RAIN BOOTS AND EGG HUNT !
It was pretty successful.
I hope your week is off to a good start and Most of all—you had time doing something you love with the people you love. I also hope you had time to reflect and think on Christ!
‘Til next time-
Have a blessed week!
