September 5, 2013

I missed the kids today...a lot.  It is an adjustment this week, that is for sure.  I was thrilled to have them home this afternoon!  We've been eating early dinners this week because of football practice, but we've taken to lighting candles and playing soft music while we eat.  It is really peaceful time around the table.  Sophie had choir tonight so Abby and I ran from church to my parents house.  It was a great run!  My parents drove us back to church to get Sophie!  On the way home we stopped at our garden, the girls love our giant sunflowers!  Anyone know how to harvest the seeds??  When Noah and Tom got home we joined around the table one more time for some apple crisp (processed sugar free!) and lots of laughter.  Although the best laugh of the night came as I wrapped up a bedtime prayer with Noah.  I paused at the end (before saying Amen) and Noah piped up, "Talk to you later, Bye!"  It was like he was ending a quick call to God on his iphone.  Needless to say we got to giggling!  We decided God didn't mind!
