The Saturday 7

1. I don't have much to share this week. I spent most of the week out by the pool working on my tan. Or inside cutting stuff for VBS crafts. Good news. My tan is looking fabulous and I am all ready for VBS!

2. Lucy went on her second ever sleepover Monday night. My sister has a girls' sleepover every year with the girls from her daycare (+Lucy). She's done doing daycare, but still did the sleepover. Lucy loves being one of the big girls and couldn't care less about leaving me. She had a blast doing make-up and hair and photo shoots.

3. I took the advice of some of my friends and got the two-seater cart at Meijer this week. And I stole borrowed some quarters from my brother's change jar to get the girls each a banana to keep them occupied. Lucy only ate a couple bites of hers, so Lena got to have two. It kept them happy through most of the store. Success!

4. I saw this on Pinterest this week and loved it:
I've always loved the story of Joseph. So often we read the story from start to finish and think, "That lucky Joseph had it so good." But when Joseph was rotting in prison for a crime he didn't commit, he had no guarantee that he would ever get out, let alone become the Pharaoh's right hand man! For all he knew, he would spend the rest of his life in jail. I love that he still praised God through it, and continued to serve him. I continually struggle with the fact that we live with my parents, won't be able to afford Christian school for our kids, and can hardly pay our bills. Maybe we're just in a waiting period and God has something wonderful in store for us. Or maybe we're called to be poor and nothing will ever change. But I love that God knows the big picture and we can trust him.

5. This week's pictures from my phone that didn't make it on facebook:
Shaving time.
Lucy picked a huge bouquet of flowers from the backyard, then found 4 vases and arranged the flowers in each of them. Future florist? :-)
I told you she seriously loved that dress.
6. Ok, I'm sorry. I can't think of anything else and Justin and I are trying to pick a movie to watch on Netflix. We can never agree. I want chick flicks, he wants war movies. Wish us luck. Haha.


  1. Another favorite thing at Meijer's with kids is stop at the bakery counter and they give a free sugar cookie away to each child. They don't advertise it much but happily give them out. And they're quite tasty! :)

  2. I'm glad your grocery shopping went better!

    Waiting is HARD... I'm right there with you. It will be interesting to see what the years bring!
