thursday night nate worked until it wasn't thursday anymore. very late night. i made waffles with strawberry sauce and whipped cream for the kids' dinner. they couldn't have been happier at chuck-e-cheese; they thought it was soooo delicious and fun. i felt happy that we made lemonade out of late-night-for-dad lemons.

friday night nate & i slipped out for a date. dinner didn't dazzle, but driving to a favorite spot and talking about our dreams did.

saturday morning i went to a church leadership training meeting while nate caught up on sleep (and the kids watched how to train your dragon). when i got home the jehova's witnesses were waiting for me in my driveway; always good to get the latest installment of the watchtower ;)

saturday afternoon we "lived in the sunshine and drank the wild air," just like emerson recommends.

saturday night nate worked late again (this time from much better.) i sat in his office and read the friend (looking for a family home evening lesson and just enjoying the overall greatness of that magazine) and texted my mom :)

this afternoon henry and i curled up on the couch and read the rest of his magic treehouse book while lily napped. i love to read with him. at dinner tonight he told the whole family every plot detail of the entire 107 page novel. we're not worried about his retention/comprehension skills at all.

and tonight? we had a family guess who tournament, read scriptures, and did pull ups.

  1. I hear your voice in every post. I love it. It makes me smile to think of you and your babies and that charming, darling husband of yours. I'm so glad you two have each other and that you have created such a lovely family together.
