was one of the best things ever conceived of for moms. :)
The kidlets are officially signed up and went for their first day of "school" yesterday. Oh man, it was so nice to not be called "Mommy!" for 6 hours! And bonus- I got to spend a good portion of time yesterday playing with scrappy stuff. Good times, good times.
In other news...
we recently changed churches.
Dude, this was a hard, hard, hard, difficult decision. It had nothing to do with the church we were going to... we absolutely love that church (and still plan to go visit as frequently as possible). It was more to do with the fact that we really felt like God was leading us somewhere different.
Now, people use that Christian jargon all the time... to the point that it feels like it's almost an excuse to cover up what you're really thinking sometimes. In this case, though, it is 100% truth. We had to make a choice between two really good things for our family, and to see where God would take us in the next few years as far as ministry and being a part of our community was concerned.
So anyways, it's been on my mind (obviously) a lot lately.... just a big change in our life. A good change.
Here are some pics from going to Community Group last Sunday night...
Seriously, what in the heck?!
Atticus decided to literally pour Root Beer all over himself. I turned around to see him holding over his shirt and then looking at me and saying "Uh Oh."
We had to use an extra shirt that Em had in her bag.
Yeah, my kids are pretty much going to hate me for some of these pics when they're older.
