Friday Favorite Five #5
I've had a very full, very busy week. So blessed...
1. Beautiful weather leading to a hike at the park. On Monday I saw the great forecast for Tuesday and planned to pick Big Sis up from preschool and head to the park with all three children. By myself. It was wonderful. It was also my first walk since Little Sis's birth in October. (And, yes, I did stop the children before they were too far away from me. See the specks of red and purple below?) Oh, it was over fifty degrees!
3. An incredible dedication service at my church celebrating the completion of the new addition and remodeling the sanctuary. It honored God in every way. I was moved to tears pretty early on...
4. Little Sis content to be out of my arms. Finally. I have had such freedom in the past few weeks since Little Sis (age 15 weeks tomorrow) is now allowing us to put her on the floor or Exersaucer to play. It was a long road...and I am grateful for this new freedom. I can now fold a load of clothes or even feed the Big Kids when she is awake without her crying.
5. Friends. I have had the blessing and privilege to spend time with several wonderful friends in the past 10 days or so.
Bonus. The great response to Giveaway Week here at This Simple Home. For a new little blog, I am really thankful for the readers' response to the giveaways I am having this week. (They are open through Tuesday if you are interested!) Thanks so much for reading!
Those are a few of my favorite things this week. You can join the fun whenever you like over at Living to Tell the Story or just to read others' favorites.
