We just got home from church and we had a great morning--our pastor comes and goes during the summer so when he is there it's always encouraging, helpful, etc. so that in itself was good. There have been some outstanding preachers already this summer and I love hearing other people but when he's back it feels like home. This was our first time to put Joy in the nursery and I fully expected to be called out and she made it through. We have kind of a bad reputation around the nursery (what is it about church that my kids don't like?!) so I had to gather my courage to go in to drop her off. The other kids did great today and didn't cry until we picked them up from their rooms. (what is it about picking them up that makes them cry?)
I ask you a lot of questions don't I?
I made one of our current favorites for dinner last night so I thought I'd share the recipe. Really, y'all, it's one of the easiest things to make. It's one of Robin Miller's recipes and if you want to try it click here.
Pretty, isn't it? I double the crepe part of the recipe and usually make dessert for the week out of them. I eat dessert all day long...Sean may eat it every other day. Last night I made banana crepes and tonight we'll eat strawberry ones. Just make some whipped cream and you can put pretty much anything in a crepe. Yum.
Miss Charlie took a big hit this weekend and you can see the bruise on her lip. Ouch. She fell onto a rock at the park by our house. She's so tough she cried pretty hard for about 2 minutes and that was it. I'd still be crying with that swollen lip!
Miss Joy is getting in a little groove the last two days. We'll take what we can get! She's close to laughing I think though I forget when they can actually laugh for real. You'd think I have those milestones memorized but you forget so quickly. I've learned a little more about her, what works and what doesn't...and yes sometimes what worked an hour ago doesn't work anymore but that's okay. It's a marathon, not a sprint, right?
Not that I participate in either kind of running. Just so we're clear. Happy Sunday!
