This week was a busy one. A good one. My dear friend Miranda made a stop here on her way to Seattle. Although I had to work while she was here, we were still able to go out to lunch twice, make a trip to a nearby park to play our guitars and sing, make some peach cobbler, and play dance central. Isaac thought she was the cat's meow. And he's right, she is!
The weather this week. Ugh. I mean, I love Oregon and I even love constant rain, but not in the summer when we've been waiting for sun for so long. There were a couple sun breaks big enough to get out into muggy, buggy nature.
Lastly, Andrew, Isaac, and I went to church today. That's right. Church. I'm not proud to admit it, but it was Isaac's first time at church. First time in the nursery! He did so well. The ladies who watched him call him "a joy." When I peeked around the corner to see him at the end of the service, he was playing with two adorable babies, a boy and a girl. It was heartwarming to see him with friends! He loves other kids. I'm relieved that it went so well. As for Andrew and I, we liked the service well enough. I think it's hard to judge a church on the first visit, so we'll be going back a few more times before we decide if we want to make it our home or not. It would be nice, because it's so close, and Isaac had such a good time in the nursery, but I believe that the study of the word needs to be relevant and challenging....and well, there are just certain teaching styles that I don't particularly like or thrive on. So, we'll see. Whatever the case, it's high time we got our butts back in church. If this one doesn't work out, I'm determined to find one that does!
Here's my boys in their Sunday best:
