Last week the kids had musical practice Monday -Wednesday. We had to be at church at 9 a.m. each morning and it takes about 40 minutes to get there. The younger kids had practice from 9-12 and the older kids had practice from 1:30- 4:00. We ended up eating lunch out each day.
The older kids had practice again on Monday evening from 7-9. To make it even more interesting, Rebekah and Victoria had TBQ practice on Monday and Tuesday from 5-6:30. I was blessed to be able to go home on Monday and Tuesday after lunch and leave the older kids at church until pick up time in the evening. A friend that had children with the same schedules as ours, fed my kids dinner between practices. Mike picked the kids up on Tuesday after work. Wednesday the girls had TBQ practice in the morning and the younger kids had a second practice Wednesday evening during regular church time. I ended up staying at or near church until about 9 p.m. on Wednesday night.
Confused yet? Let's just say those three days were very busy! I admire and appreciate those who work with our kids! They work so hard. I was exhausted just transporting the kids back and forth and sitting and watching. I can't imagine how exhausted they were!
Our excitement for this week is that the Library called this morning and Micah's name was drawn as the winner for this month's reading program! The prize is a Season Pass for the family to the Pool/Water Park. I believe that this is the third season for this pool to be open. We have never been, but we have been wanting to go. I actually was thinking about taking the kids this week, so what a surprise to receive this call!
Here are some pictures from their website:
I have to go to the Library to fill out the paperwork for our passes. What a coincidence that I need to go to the Library today because we have some things that are due!
I so needed some encouragement today, and I believe God gave us this as a special gift to bring some joy into our lives! This pass is a $225 value, so what a Blessing it is!
Now on to the Library to pick up our prize!
Have a Wonderful Tuesday!
