Big mommy blunder today. Heard a teacher say last week that today was pajama day, so I marked my calendar. I also told my carpool buddy. Picked her up normally this morning and her and #1 were all decked out in pajamas. Got to school and was told by a teacher, oh, pajama day is Thursday, we switched it! And I was supposed to know that how?!? I was a little irritated, but then decided that I would not assume anything unless verbally told or given a note. The worst part was, #1 noticed that he was one of two kiddos wearing pajamas and wouldn't walk in his classroom. The principle offered some clothes that the school keeps for 'accidents'. #1 conceded. The clothes were a little outdated and #1 noticed. He still didn't want to enter the classroom for fear that the other kids would 'laugh at him'. Kill me now! That broke my heart. We said a prayer and I gave him a little 'who cares what anyone thinks' pep talk, he finally went in. On my drive home, upset, the Lord brought to my memory the story about David and the verse about God being concerned only with the heart. On my way to pick the kids up, David Rosales was teaching on that very thing. Confirmation. When we got home, while #1 ate his lunch, I told him the story. I don't know if he understood or not, but it was important for me to tell him. Guess I'll go mark the calendar again. Carpool playlist picture above. Can never go wrong with a little KOC.
What is this?

Worked, then got ready for dinner with friends. I made lasagna because our friends are a family of eight. I made 1 veggie and 1 meat. My recipe needs a little perfecting. Now that they have those no-boil noodles, I need to make it more often. I've mastered spaghetti, now onto lasagna. Had a great dinner, no running today. Gonna try and get my runs in Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday this week.

Today is all about catching up and preparing for my upcoming week. Church was great this morning and then we went out to lunch together as a family. One of my favorite things, a little family time, no one else, just us. We are having the K clan over tomorrow night for dinner and I didn't want to do take out, so I'm going to make lasagna. Gotta go to the store, and pay bills, and clean up the house. Daddy just left to go lobstering, so I'm on my own. Lord, help me. Catching up on the blog as well. Got a couple hours to kill right now, while the boys sleep. Hmm, what to do? Read, movie? Maybe a little of both.
What a beautiful service today for Gramma P. I was privileged to sing, it was difficult, but the Lord got me through. Such a great picture of the body of Christ coming together and honoring one of their own. Everyone brought their quilts or any other creation that P had made for them. The place was covered. There were so many people there, she had such an impact on so many. I hope I can do the same with my life.
Got this sucka in the mail today. I had a light day so I tried it out a little. One word: MAJOR! I can't wait to use it during a real worship set. The boys and I had a lazy day watching movies and then I cleaned up the house for our babysitter the next day. Gramma P's service tomorrow. Not looking forward to it.
Lunch with Baba and Papa today. Afterwards, the boys and I snuggled up together in my bed and they took a nap. I did worship and hubby taught for Abide tonight. We have been so attacked this week because of it, but God is faithful. Everything was wonderful. The Lord blessed. After it was all over, we were as giddy as two schoolgirls. Funny thing that is...

Busy work day today. Catching up from being on vacation for about a month, but so blessed to have a good job where I get this time off. The boys watched a couple movies today. Couldn't do preschool time because I couldn't find his new homework. Gotta be better about homework. I'm almost always a couple of days late getting it in. Hopefully I'll get my act together before Kindergarten, which is coming up so close! I'm excited for that next chapter.
