After a completely topsy-turvy week, today we try to get back into routine. Last week, hubby was away as camp pastor at a children's music camp & all 4 kiddos were with the grandparents for a few days. That's right...I was ALONE.
By all accounts, the week was a success for all. The kids had a terrific time: water day, going to the movies (Despicable Me), seeing their cousins, going to Stumphouse Tunnel, and getting spoiled :). Hubby had a great time at camp and 28 kids made professions of faith! I got the garage cleaned, the bushes trimmed, the van cleaned, and several other projects done that I've been putting off...is procrastination a spiritual gift?
My parents brought the kids home and were able to stay a couple of days to continue the "Doting Marathon". Just to keep things interesting, let's throw in a Coupon 101 class for me, a Cafe on the Hill youth fundraiser, a youth lock-in, AND a youth carwash! Top it all off with wonderful worship services yesterday, followed by a youth pool party after evening service and you have a very tired family.
So, how do you follow-up such a frenzy of activity? With the kids asking "What are we going to do today?"
