A Tuesday with Heidi

I'm thankful for…family. It was so good to see a lot of family on the weekend & have a chance to catch up a bit.

I'm listening to…kids…a little bit ago they were all sitting around the butterflies talking to them…it was so cuteJ

What's for supper tonight…don’t know what we’re going to do…going to Red Deer, so we’ll find something cheap.

Highlights from last week…2 warm soccer practices in a row!!! The kids were thrilled to be able to ride their bikes to soccer finally & I thoroughly enjoyed the warmth! We also had a blast going to the park with Ben’s sister Cheri & her little guy, Max. We haven’t spent nearly enough time with them since they’re home & it was wonderful to be able to chat. I think the most exciting part of the week was Thursday…Benjamin finished Grade 2!!! It feels very good to be doneJ.

On Saturday we headed to Cochrane for a family reunion on my dad’s side of the family. We spent the day visiting, going to the park (which included a game of tag for the adults…I was soooo sore the next day!), & hanging out in the yard. The day ended with a talent show. Benjamin read a couple of things that he has written for school through the year. Then all 3 of our kids sang & did actions for 2 songs they learned at Kid Connection. It was a long, but fun day!

On Sunday we got up bright & early & headed out again…this time to the zoo in Calgary. A bunch of the family was meeting there for a few hours before they headed home. It was especially nice to hang out with my cousin Beckie a bit more. We didn’t really get to talk, but it was so nice just to hang out & have fun together.

What's happening this week… Swimming & soccer. On Friday we might head to Calgary to watch my brother run for track & field. It’s the provincials…he got 2nd place in countys!!! I really want to go…just have to see if we can swing the gas money. On Saturday I’m taking pictures for the grad ceremony at Olds Koinonia Christian School. I’m excited, but nervous at the same timeJ. Other than that…we’re really enjoying just hanging around home…going for bike rides, to the park, playing outside…just doing summer stuff! I’ve also been catching up a lot of things that have been on the to do list for months & months…which feels just wonderful! Oh one more thing…we were able to borrow a rototiller from a friend to do our garden…and we found out that my dad has a bunch of dirt he has to get rid of at a job…so we get free dirt! I’m very excited to build raised beds for my garden…hopefully this weekend. I know it’s going to be a super late garden…but we’re going to give it a goJ

I am missing…Elliots…this time last year…just a bit later I guess…was when Elliots came back from Paraguay. It was soooo nice to have friends close by to do these summer things with. We miss going to the park, riding bikes, & hanging out with them!

I am praying for…wisdom & very clear direction as we make decisions about work.

Did you get the garden beds in? Sounds like you are enjoying the warmer weather. :) We are still waiting for weather warm enough for shorts and the wading pool. I think I get asked once a day when the hot weather is coming... :)

The garden beds are partially in. It was a lot more work than Ben expected to fill them! He's got about 1 1/4 full. We ended up with a busier weekend than we expected so I guess whenever it happens, it happens:)
Shorts weather is a dream right now...not sure if or when we'll get it:) Have a great day!
