Our Weekend

Wow!  I didn't realize how depressing my last weeks of posts have been until I sat down and reread them all at once last night.  I'm thinking some of you may be wondering how this whiny girl (okay almost old woman) is going to handle having 4 kids.  If not, I'll admit I do sometimes wonder myself...

And the main answer is my husband.  

Wednesday after I got news about my grandma he came home early, took me to lunch, and let me rest.  Thursday was out to dinner and to a park.
Friday was SnapDragon's school field trip.  The best kind of field trip...a play where we all ride the bus together and sit still in seats and ride the bus way to lose someone else's child and lots of cuddling with my child.  So my husband stayed home with Sunflower just so I could go.  While I was there he cleaned and did laundry all morning...stuff I should have done on Thursday.

In the afternoon he took Huckleberry and Sunflower kayaking and fishing while I was able to nap and watch SnapDragon play video games.  They even caught a fish and came home and ate it for dinner without my house ending up smelling like fish!

The weekend was more of the same.  He carpooled Huckleberry to his Saturday robotics practice while I was able to go on a photoshoot with my friends and out to lunch.  We watched Mr. Poppins Penguins as a family...a pretty cute movie really.

Sunday church and then we all deep cleaned the inside of the car...all 5 of was that bad.  Now I won't be embarrassed with my kids' aunts are driving it around in a few weeks.  Then the kids favorite park and dinner out.
So all the eating out isn't doing great things for our budget and our yard is not always neat and tidy, but this family will never doubt that this man loves them.
 I know love alone isn't enough, but it sure is a fantastic foundation.


No Greater Love said... made my eyes water. Yup...Oak and Mike would be good friends. They sound a lot alike. You have a wonderful husband...I am so glad you got rest.

You can almost say two weeks...I am so excited for you. I've hardly had any time for the computer lately...but oh, will I be stalking you like a hound when you go to China. :)

Sometimes, you just have to let it all out in order to move forward!
