First Real Weekend at our New Home!

This weekend was the first real weekend we’ve had since we moved in.  The weekend between the week we moved in and the week we left for vacation was filled with packing and trying to unearth all the odds and ends we needed in order to ensure happiness and sanity during our trip. The weekend after we arrived home from California was filled with unpacking and getting everyone back on schedule. So here we were.

Saturday was quiet. Jonathan took Hula Girl on a father/daughter date to the laundromat (she calls it the laundrymat- actually, the way she pronounces it, it comes out “yawn-duh-yuh-ree-mat”- so cute) on Saturday morning. They took all our heavy blankets that are usually folded up in storage or hung over the backs of couches to give them a nice washing before winter. I love that it takes just as much time to do ALL of them at the laundromat as it would to do just one of them here at home. Hula Girl loved that the donut shop is right next door to the laundromat. While they were gone, I worked on putting up some decorations in Gelato’s room. Then the two of them brought lunch home for all of us. Naptime was filled with Pinterest (me) and weed pulling (Jonathan). We ended the day with a family trip to Hobby Lobby, where we purchased knobs for Gelato’s table and closet doors.

Sunday was pretty typical except we decided to try bringing the kids to the first service instead of waiting until second service. This meant that Gelato had to miss the first half of his nap. It was okay. I think we’ll stick with it because that way we’re not rushing home to get lunch done before naps. During Sunday School I learned that I’m going to be taking over the middle school girls Sunday School class, and I’m actually going to be doing a LOT more with those girls than just Sunday School. We’re thinking activities, girls’ nights in, etc. (They really need help building up the attendance for that particular class. I think I can handle it!) After church I went grocery shopping, and we spent the evening at home as a family.

All in all, it was relaxing. And now it’s fall. I will have more to write tomorrow.

      I sure am looking forward to it, at least. Not sure if I’m READY but oh well!

        Yes, doing it will be part of the getting ready, don’t you think? 😉
