We had a great, mostly relaxing (there was one small incident at the Cracker Barrel with a certain two-year old we all know and love.) weekend around these parts. We made The Nester’s homemade pizza crust for dinner on Friday night and can I just say– It was delicious. It’s made with a portion of whole wheat flour, which I love and the texture is just so good. We have been making homemade pizza for years but something about her crust… I am going to go ahead and say it’s my favorite. Not too chewy, Not too crunchy. Just perfect. Try it, you might love it! The nester’s whole philosophy is “It doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful.” and WOW. The world needs a little more of that. I need a little more of that in my own life for sure. Our pizza crust was definitely a little… less than perfect but it tasted fantastic.
Something that did happen this weekend– and to say I’m ecstatic would be an understatement. But Charlie’s Mama -aka- Courtney had her baby!!! Only a couple days after her due date she went into labor and he was born this weekend, healthy and handsome! I share that for those of you who read my post last week, And so we wait. It turns out, he didn’t keep us waiting too long after all. So, my entire friday was spent staring at my phone. From the time I woke up to one of my absolute favorite kinds of texts–
4:06AM– “We are being checked into the hospital! Contractions are 3-5 minutes apart!”
To later that afternoon–
“Charlie is HERE!!!”
My emotions were ALL over the place. But aren’t new babies just the best? I can NOT wait to be able to meet him in person– hopefully very very soon! And to hug my dear friend’s neck who is now a beautiful Mama!
So yeah, that was definitely the HIGHLIGHT of our weekend. *****
On Saturday, Lucy had her 5th swim lesson. I was concerned about my very cautious child and what she would do when told to get in the water without her puddle jumper on– but she’s done really well. The last few days she has been a little fearful when going and I can tell she’s trying so hard to be brave. We were able to have a little chat about what her VBS verse from 2 weeks ago really means (Phil. 4:13) and I got a little shot of her showing me her “brave” face.
Mostly brave with a good bit of uncertainty. Ha! She is so my child.
Well, Happy Monday! Make it a good one!
