Finally! A low-key, no-plans weekend at home!

For the first (and probably last) time in a very long time, we had a quiet weekend at home with no obligations, no plans, no schedule! It was fabulous. Hendrix let us sleep until around 7:30 on Saturday morning. We got up, got ready, and went shopping for family pictures next weekend. Matt and Hendrix were the high class, preppy boys. Matt got a black cashmere sweater. Hendrix got a Chaps brand navy sweater vest and a Chaps white collared shirt to go under it. So adorable! I picked up a really cute V-neck, simple black sweater for $18.00. Hahaha! After shopping, we went to the Bowling Green library and all got a few books! Hendrix got 4 cardboard books, because he doesn't understand yet, that we don't rip pages out of books. Matt got a book titled "Intellectuals in Society," (which he said sounded interesting, but reads way too slowly for him) and I got the first Harry Potter book to read again, and also "Winter Garden," by Kristin Hannah. I'm about 1/2 way through it, and so far it's pretty good. Saturday afternoon, Matt worked in the yard. He mowed, for hopefully the last time, raked leaves, and we all played outside for a while.

Sunday, Hendrix woke up just before 7 am. I got him breakfast, and took a quick shower while he was occupied with his breakfast. I was playing keyboard with the worship team, and had to be at church at 9 am. We put Hendrix in the nursery, and he seemed to be doing fun, until Mason, another little boy, started fussing, and I think it caused a chain reaction. :) After church we headed home, all took a short nap, and watched football and played outside for the rest of the day. It was a very enjoyable and low-key weekend. I wish there were more of those.....

However, I'm afraid the busy part of the year is just beginning. But oh well, we'll go with the flow. This weekend we are traveling home to Elwood and Portland for family pictures. It'll be a very busy and tiring weekend, but I'm definitely looking forward to seeing the family.

Here are a few shots I got this past weekend.......

I thought the clouds looked awesome above the church steeple on Sunday morning!

Cheesing for the camera, which Goldfish Crackers in his mouth!

He was showing me the leaves he had discovered. They were so crunchy!

Playing on the playground equipment down at the elementary school as the sun sank lower in the sky.

Daddy likes to have fun with Hendrix!
