John is home...finally! He left last Sunday for Santa Fe, NM. He's been there all week attending the Glen Workshop. He had a great time and got to enjoy beautiful Santa Fe, but we're so glad he's back home. It's just not the same around here without him.
Our week without him was pretty uneventful. The kids and I made two library runs, a grocery shopping trip, and one night we went to pick up a pizza. Other than that, we didn't leave the house, and it was wonderful. Soon enough we'll be back in the school groove and our activity will itensify. And I'm not really looking forward to that because I prefer a slow, slow pace of life. I'm really praying about my fall schedule and what activities I should choose to fill my calendar space. I know that if I'm not intentional about what I commit to, I will end up frazzled. There are so many good things to do--Bible study, volunteering at school, etc, but I'm asking God to show me what is best.
Because we've stayed close to home this week, and because John missed eating the yummy New Mexican cuisine at The Shed in Santa Fe, we're going to our favorite mexican place for dinner tonight! Can't wait! S & T...so sorry you can't join us...we'll be sure to eat plenty for you guys.
John had my camera with him this week in Santa Fe, so I'll leave you with some of the photos he took, and with some of our vacation pictures I didn't get downloaded before he left with the camera! Enjoy your weekend!
