My church's sermon on Sunday talked about loving your family intentionally and making your life simple enough that you have room for them on your calendar and in your heart.
While I feel like I do this pretty well in my daily life, I definitely took this as an opportunity to make more of our time together and make the quantity even more quality.
So, this afternoon while it was 75 degrees outside when we got home from school, we went out in the front yard and played. Played like we haven't played outside since early autumn.
|did you ever have one of these bouncy balls? She loves hers.|
|Loudoun asked for roller blades for his birthday and he's getting really good! |
He wanted me to tell you in these letters exactly, he's a GR8 SK8TER, yo!
We had a picnic dinner on the lawn.
And we finished off the night with leftover cake from Rick's celebration last night
(he got a promotion!) and we each blew out candles and we all sang happy
birthday to each other. It was awesome. I want to do that every night.
