The weekend is over!

What a weekend we've had. The girls party was a success yesterday. They had a wonderful time and were blessed with lots of friends to share it with! The stress of party planning is over...well until Oct. THen I get to start planning the big #1 for little miss Audrey. Im thinking a fall festival type theme. Lots of pumpkins, hay bales.....letting the kids bob for apples, have a potato sac race, and a 3 legged race. Just some old fashioned fun doing things that kids nowadays dont do. Either that or do her party at a pumpkin patch we went to last yr out in Prosper. That would be fun. FOr the older kids at least, lol. The people who know me really well know how much I LOOOOVEEEE party planning! I seriously could make a side job out of it. I have actually thought about going into that. I always get stressed out though. I get all these ideas and then I cant find what I need to make them come to life.
Today was Elisa's All-Star T-Ball teams end of the season party. The kids (most of the same friends from her party yesterday) had a blast swimming at one of the girls (from the teams) house. This will be the last time she associates as a team member with many of those girls so it was bittersweet. Im sooooooooooooo glad for this all to be over. Can I say that again? Im SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo glad for this all to be over. I thought we were going to have a nice relaxing summer and its been anything but that. But this was a once in a lifetime experience for her and we'll never do it again. Ever. At least Elisa can says shes been to a National championship game before. But now its back to normal life focusing on our family.

We now have about a month to relax before starting school again. This year Elisa will be in 2nd grade, Ava in pre-K and Audrey will be busy busy busy! Im a little nervous to be honest. But there are tons of homeschooling families out there who manage with great success. So as long as we keep our focus on the Lord, success will come to us as well. Im ready for lots of teaching from Him (for myself) this school year as well. Its going to be a learning experience for us all. Im so excited to see what He's going to do in our family throughout this next year!

Ok, off to bed for me. Audrey is sleeping really well...I should be asleep taking advantage of uninterupted sleep!
