Yesterday we spent the entire day at home. It rained on & off, so I went outside only to rotate our clothes drying on the laundry rack. I didn’t get to run, and it absolutely did not surprise me how much I missed my run. (I have a healthy addiction.) A sparkly highlight from yesterday was recording a podcast with Jenn Sprinkle in the afternoon for their book club podcast on 31 Days of Prayer for the Dreamer and the Doer (click here to buy the book). I loved how sharing a bit of my story reminded me this season of life may be what I’m called to do, but it isn’t always easy. I enjoyed chatting with Jenn so much!
Today begins our first “weekly beach trip of the Summer” season with my girlfriends, and I can’t wait! We did a practice run on Sunday with Zack and I have to admit, it was a lot easier than I thought it would be. Taking Max to the beach every week last Summer was one of my best parenting tips for success :) and my plan is to hit “repeat” this year. Note to self: bring way more food than you think you’ll need.
Tomorrow we are (finally) getting Natalie’s name plate engraved on our heirloom baby cradle. We’re only seven months late to the party, but maybe I’m the only one keeping track? I wonder which of my cousins will use it next… or if it’ll be our family? ;) That is not an announcement. Oh, and I just realized she’s the first great-granddaughter to have used the cradle. So sweet…
Do you take your kids somewhere every week during the Summer months?
