Well, here it is Mothers Day weekend... and a busy one it was! Friday night date with the man that I love...Movie to see Star Trek...Kohls to shop for new clothes for me...and a nice dinner.
Saturday up early...well not too early! Kelley loaded up the boat...per Kenzie's request... and we headed to the lake for a day of fun. The house is coming along quite nicely. The roofer, plumber, heating and air men have been very busy. It's finally beginning to look like a real home. Next week the electrician will be able to get the electrical done and hopefully the siding guys will give our little house a much needed beauty lift. We are really anxious to see how the porch turns out. We have doubled the porch width and plan on screening it in for those lazy days of relaxing when we are not in the water. I am now on the hunt for rockers and swings ... maybe even a hanging day bed for afternoon naps! While there, our son...the soon to be archaeologist... found a spear head. This was such an exciting find for him. This find sent us all looking through the dirt, to see what other treasures might be waiting us. After a few trips around the lake, we loaded up to head home. We are all counting down the days where we can just stay overnight at our little retreat. It's exciting to think of all the years ahead spending time with our family making memories!
Sunday was a nice day going to church and coming home to a nice meal my hubby and kiddos prepared for me. I must say they did a fabulous job too! We all then relaxed and watched Chonda Pierce DVD's. She's a singer and comedian who can minister to the heart of any woman.
Thank you Kelley for making this weekend special for me. Thank you kids for helping me to be part of this club we call motherhood! I can't imagine life without the 10 of you in it. You are the reason I strive to be a better wife, mother and child of God!
