Taking a moment away from cutting and gluing and picture-taking so say, "Hi". The sun has been beating down on me as I sit sprawled on the floor surrounded by fabric and mess. Yay for big windows! And yay for understanding children who take time away from their school to help Mommy. (A big sacrifice for them, I'm sure. :)
It's not all work, work, work though. We spent a long time (begging for more) reading Katie's story. I had been searching for a new book to start as a read-aloud with them and Katie's book peeked out at me from the basket under the coffee table. "Hello there? You haven't read me yet!" I had been meaning to read it myself but am so glad I started it with the kids. They can't get enough of her story of God-glorifying, sacrificing love.
And when I popped onto Pinterest "for a minute" (ha), I happened upon this irresistible sweet treat and immediately dropped everything to make an emergency "must-have-ice-cream" run.
Topped with Breyer's Butter Pecan. Mmmmmm. You know it's rich when I couldn't even finish mine.
OK, I'm off to tackle the day. Not tackle really....I plan on enjoying it, soaking up my work and the sun and these children while they're here!
May yours be lovely,
