Weekend Wonder, Awe, and Appreciation


We had such a wonderful extended weekend and I hope your family did too! Thought I would share the relaxing weekend we had in town.  It was so nice to just hangout around the house on Saturday, we literally did not go anywhere and it was beautiful.  Our toddler had fun picking wild flowers and scooting in her scooter.  Our preschooler rode his bike up and down the sidewalk while our kindergartener created wonderful masterpieces on the sidewalk.  And mommy actually got to sit down and sip on tea, imagine that!

Sunday was a day for celebration! We celebrated Pentecost at our house by making a beautiful centerpiece that displayed the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit and sang Happy Birthday to the church.

Memorial Day was all about gratitude and spending time with family. The day started off with a magnificent parade that exemplified community connectivity.

Honor Our Military

Let’s honor our military,

The men and women who serve,

Whose dedication to our country

Does not falter, halt or swerve.

Let’s respect them for their courage;

They’re ready to do what’s right

To keep America safe,

So we can sleep better at night.

Let’s support and defend our soldiers,

Whose hardships are brutal and cruel,

Whose discipline we can’t imagine,

Who follow each order and rule.

Here’s to those who choose to be warriors

And their helpers good and true;

They’re fighting for American values;

They’re fighting for me and you.

You're off to great places! But do keep in touch!

In the words of Dr. Seuss, You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go. And when you get there take us with you!
