Ten on Tuesday
3. Jay is in golf camp this week. Emory is in softball camp this week. Jay's camp ends at 1 and Emory's camp starts at 1, and they are 20 minutes away from each other. Do you think this caused me a scheduling headache? Do you think I tried to find a carpool? Nope. I just knew that it would work out. Someone commented to me that when you have 3 (or more) kids you just don't worry about it. So, I told Jay (and his coach) that I would be late every day and that he could just stay at the pool until I got there. No problem.
5. If someone handed you a list of all of your Facebook statuses for the past year, what would it say about you? Just something to think about.
6. We are reading A Praying Life by Paul Miller at our church this summer. It is amazing. He talks about journaling your prayers. I have done this for a long time, and the other day I was reading my prayer journal from a year or so ago. I was amazed at so many answered prayers. So much progress for Jay. (The fact that he is going to golf camp and actually enjoying himself is big and shows lots of progress.) I think if I didn't write them out I wouldn't appreciate all that God has done for me. I forget about the small things I pray about. I might not even realize God has answered a prayer until I go back and read it. I use plain spiral notebooks. No fancy journal. That is just too much pressure for me to make it perfect. It's just a pen and plain paper, me and my God.
7. The day I change sheets is the night Packy pees through his pull up. (Yes, he still wears a pull up at night. He is a drinker, not an eater, and I hate to change sheets.) The morning Jason and I try to get up extra early is the morning we find 1,000 ants in our kitchen. Just have to laugh right?
10. This is the face of the little one who was up and dressed at 6:45 on Saturday morning because Saturday is his favorite day. He is also making this face because he was beating me at checkers due to all of the "jumping" rules that he made up as we went along. He does not stop talking until he goes to sleep. At church on Wednesday night, we played Pictionary, boys against the girls. We alternated between an adult and a kid each round. Packy wanted to draw so badly so I told Jason to let him (he thought he was too little) and help him draw the picture. Jason went up to the board and Packy drew his card. Jason told him what it said and he said, "Daddy, that's an easy one." He went and got his marker and drew the sweetest little cross on the board and some guessed it immediately. The joy on that little face was enough to bring his mom to tears. Enjoy every moment.
