I recently switched over my (very small) closet from winter clothes to summer clothes. These, dear reader, are my winter clothes. Do you notice a theme? Black, gray and brown are great colors - with a small splash of denim and burnt orange! Don't be a hater! Neutrals are my friends!
Look at that large even number! This is the odometer of our suburban, which we are hoping has lots and lots of more miles left in her. We have a few more adventures planned and we hope the old girl can hang on to take us on them!
Tuesday night, my middle son got the game ball at his game. He had possibly the best game of his life - a triple (to the fence!!), great pitching, and several infield plays. I was not able to see it (I was watching my older son's game at a different park), but my husband gave me some play by plays as the game progressed. My son's coach is great - he encourages my son and gives him opportunities to learn and grow. We couldn't be happier with all his coaches and his team this year. But his coach told my husband that I couldn't come to his games anymore - apparently mom is bad luck (this seems to be a common theme for me and my kids' achievements)
Our Blessing Chapel is a tradition at our Lutheran School. In the top picture, I am blessing one of my students, and in the bottom, my youngest daughter is being blessed by her teacher. These blessings are amazing. As a teacher, I am incredibly moved as I bless each child at this last service of the year. What a joy to give my little ones God's promises as I tell them good-bye. And as a parent, what a privilege to witness the same between my children and their teachers. Our Lutheran school is a partnership between parent and child, and I am ever so grateful for it!
