Really, where did April go? This week has been busy. We've had therapy, school work, ballet, rock climbing class, piano. Whew! No wonder I'm tired. Also, on Tuesday, my dear friend babysat the children so Ben and I could go out to dinner for my birthday. This is the first time in about 6 years since we've done this. It was nice. Although, I thought it was ironic that the hostess placed us right next to a table with kids.
On Wednesday, we started a book study of Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle's book, The Domestic Church: Room by Room, A Mother's Study Guide. It's a great book. It's quick and easy, but there's a lot there. We are trying to finish the study in 5 weeks so that one of our group can
lead participate before she moves to Kansas. The first chapter is titled "The Foyer" which basically is about finding Jesus through Mary (motherhood).
Our therapy times have changed due to Brother's regular OT being on maternity leave (please come back soon, Liz). So, we end up going 3 times a week instead of 2 as his temp OT only works 3 days a week and Mondays are not one of them. I have a hard time during our Tuesday trips to OT. The moms in the waiting room are not very good about keeping their topics tame. They also don't dress very modestly. I'm not trying to judge; really, I'm not. However, let me just say a couple of things. If you have to keep putting your self back in, your shirt is too low cut. If my children and I can see a part of your anatomy heretofore known only in male plumbers, you need either different pants or a much longer shirt.
Tomorrow is knitting class for my children which means I get to go over to one of my dearest friends' houses to knit and chat and not necessarily in that order.
Oh, and one more thing. Tomorrow is Emily's ultrasound. Please continue your prayers.
