Some weeks are just difficult. We had one of those last week.
Our suburban started making a funny chicken noise. An expensive noise.
We are dealing with a 2 car situation for 3 drivers.
Michael’s schedule wasn’t lining up with our weekend trip out of town.
I had to change my attitude.
We work with wonderful people who love our children.
We OWN 3 vehicles. No debt. We have an emergency fund for just this situation.
Michael was in Joplin giving of his time & energy to those who right now have NOTHING.
It helped to spend time with my mother-in-law & father-in-law. They are so giving, loving & fun to spend time with.
We traveled up to the farm where Suzanne grew up & spent the weekend there.
So here are the highlights of our trip.
First we all worked hard at building a new fence.
Elizabeth is an expert post hole digger.
After the little people & grandma & I went inside the guys kept working & got more done. There was some definite napping going on after lunch. Along with soda drinking, snacking & games!
Since we were hot--there had to be a water gun/balloon fight!
And Root Beer floats! Yum!
This was a trip I wasn’t so excited about. I am feeling behind, overwhelmed & in need of some quiet work time. It is hard to get away & relax when you feel that way. I am so thankful that I went. My husband & kids had a blast. It was fun to see them let loose & enjoy being together. I wouldn’t have missed it for anything.
