Good Morning Company Girls! I hope the morning finds you all doing well! I don't have much to offer this morning...I haven't been grocery shopping in awhile. However, I did go to the bread store last weekend (big mistake) and you will find some Ho Ho's and Ding Dongs in my freezer--throwbacks to childhood lunches, I guess!
I haven't been around the blog world much lately, shamefully not even for the Small Things. We are still trying to figure out a workable routine around here and I am just barely keeping my head above water. I could whine but I think everyone is kind of sick of that so I choose not to.
We are staying very busy around here, although with nothing exciting, mostly school, dance and baseball. oh, and lest I forget, an almost two year old who goes from the sweetest, cutest, grinningest joy of my life to a little screaming hurricane trying to hit, kick and bite everything in his path. It is a joy!
Small things haven't been accomplished much lately, although I long to get back to them. However, we did get our kitchen vacuumed this week! I figure, if we can get one room vacuumed a month, by the end of the year we can have the whole house vacuumed one whole time! My grandma would be so proud!
The highlight of this week came last night. A ballet company by the name of Ballet Magnificat came to town to perform "The Hiding Place". It was AMAZING! I know, many of you out there are skeptical about the joy of a good ballet, but I am telling you, it was a worship experience! And, as the girl said before the show, there were no swans or miles of white tulle! Ballet Magnificat is a christian ballet company out of Jackson, Mississippi and they are amazing. First of all, we got the opportunity to talk to Dancer about how she could even use Dance to share with people about Jesus and secondly, it was just flat out good!
If you have never read "The Hiding Place" it is the incredible story of Corrie Ten Boom. My twelve year old will be reading it later this year in Language Arts so we drug him along, too. All the kids, even the nine year old boy enjoyed the show and we are now contemplating a Christmas trip to Jackson, MS to see their Christmas production...it was THAT good!
Now for the pictures of us all decked out for our night on the town. Oh, wait. I didn't take any! Trust me, we were stunning!
Today, we will do a little school, although after our late night, I am letting the kiddos sleep in. Then guitar practice, dance and visiting with Tigerfan's Mamaw, aunt and uncle who rolled into town last night. We also have an informational meeting about a basketball team FB is interested in joining...is it wrong to hope that doesn't work out? I don't need any more activities!
Baseball tomorrow if we don't have to build an ark due to the non stop raining it has been doing...which reminds me that we have another leak...this one in the ceiling, ain't home ownership grand?
Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend and I really am going to do my best to get around to visiting everyone this weekend! Don't forget to stop by Home Sanctuary for more Coffee Talk!
