Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

Our first week at Papa & Mimi's house...
Monday we travelled, Tuesday with family, Wednesday at the lake, Thursday shopping, Friday sick in bed, Saturday at the beach...

Sunday I decided that even though my mom was away I was still going to take the kids to church. I knew that there would be no Sunday School and I would have to try to keep them still and quiet for the entire service. Something we have just started to do and certainly not something I have done by myself! It went sort of okay, they were generally quiet but did not sit very still. We have a lot of work to do!

After church we packed up the van then went to pick up GG for lunch. After lunch we drove to yet another lake to my aunt & uncles cabin. We had a wonderful day. The weather was perfect, I got to hold my newest baby cousin and visit with more family. The kids had a blast playing with their cousin and they discovered how much fun a hammock can be!

Of course, one of the highlights was to have a picture of Grandma with her great-grandchildren, well not quite half of them, she has 12! When we were young we did the same thing - had pictures taken with our Great-Grandmas. How precious to be able to continue that tradition!!! But even more precious to hear her laugh at how silly they were when we were trying to get a picture!


Awww...I love swimming pools and hammocks!
