I was planning on actually doing a "Midweek Musings" post today, but then we had some impromptu fun after school. Of course, that warrants a blog post.
We've missed a few weeks of church recently due to illness and traveling, so I was more than ready to get back into the groove of things . I'm going to be honest here: Wednesdays are stinking hard. There's not enough time to go home between picking the kids up and church starting, but it's too long for the them to wait patiently. By the time everything starts, I am kinda flustered.
Luckily, we can fill in the time gap by visiting the park when the weather permits. That's exactly what we decided to do yesterday. I didn't tell the kids beforehand, so I think it made it extra special. Don't tell them, but this will become a weekly tradition. SPOILER ALERT!!
I am so, so grateful that spring is here for so many reason. I have such special memories of going to the park once a week with Eli when he was younger, so I want to make new memories with both of my babies. Oh, and maintain my sanity on Wednesdays.
We started our little tradition with a selfie to commemorate the moment.
One of the things they love to do is make up obstacle courses, so we did that together and timed everyone. Eli was obsessed with breaking his personal record. Ha! I'm hoping that will pay off in the future.
Since we had missed church recently, I wasn't aware that there was going to be an Easter Egg hunt tonight. Yay for surprise number two!!!
And as if I needed one more reason to be thankful for the blessed day, this is the view I was afforded on my way home. Just amazing!
