I’ve been meaning to post about the past week & just haven’t ever gotten around to it. So, here’s a little week in review:
The 4th of July! Our church had a “Freedom Celebration” featuring the Voices of Lee from Lee University. They’re an acappella singing group and they were amazing!
After church, The Clavells and Rebecca came over for to grill burgers & hot dogs. They had all completed the Peachtree Road Race that morning! I was so proud of all of them.
My birthday was this week, and as in recent years, they took my favorite dessert, Rice Krispie Treats, and made a cake out of it. Each year they do something different, and I so look forward to it. This years was so cute!
After dinner & dessert we headed outside for some fireworks. (Yes, Jboy is wearing part of his fire fighter costume from Halloween.)
It was a great night!
Tuesday I don’t recall having anything going on. I’m pretty sure we just hung around the house all day.
My birthday! And my Dad’s. And my Uncle David’s! That morning, Jboy & I met Lisa and the girls for a movie & lunch. It was a great day! Chris’ parents gave me a gift card to 10Ten Nail Bar as my birthday gift. I love this place! They give the best. pedicures. ever! I can’t wait to make use of it.
My friend Mae (with an “e” ;D) wanted to take me to lunch for my birthday, so we met her & her son, Nate, at Red Lobster. Yum-o! I had a hair appointment on that side of town at 5:30, so we decided to go to Imaginations at Play to kill some time, and enjoy the air conditioning. The boys had a great time playing and, as always, I loved getting the chance to chat with Mae.
Yesterday was a great day! When I was in high school, I was very involved in my church youth group. The friends I made during this time are some of the most important in my life. As often happens, over time we’ve all moved on & around the country, and sadly don’t keep in touch as well as we’d like. Several months ago, we were able to get back in touch with our youth pastor and we started planning a reunion. Yesterday was the day! I’m going to do a separate post about that, so stay tuned!
It’s been a pretty good day. Today was mine & Chris’ turn to volunteer in Jboy’s class at church. The past couple of times that we’ve been in his room, he’s been very clingy. Today they needed one of us to help in another room, so Chris made the switch. Jonathan had been kind of having a “Daddy day” today & was not at all pleased with this turn of events. He cried pretty much the entire rest of the time. I felt so bad, but there wasn’t really anything I could do. I couldn’t take him out & leave the teacher all alone with the rest of the kids but, at the same time, I felt like I couldn’t take Jboy to his daddy because that would be giving in to his tantrum. It was a long hour & a half. Jboy’s teacher and I talked about it today & we both agree that parents should help in a class other than their child’s. Hopefully next time our name comes up on the roster we can help in a different class. For Jboy’s sake… and ours.
Well, I think that just about covers the week. It was a good one!
