After dinner and a short nap at "Ice Cream's" house (aka grandparents), we joined 18 other families who were dedicating their young ones and promising that they would do their best to raise their children in a God filled home and share the gospel with their children, leading them to Christ. For some reason, a lot of the kids were chatty and it was a little hard to hear our wonderful nursery, preschool and children's ministers speak. But that's ok. It was similar to what we heard when we did this little ceremony with the other kids. It is NOT an infant baptism, but a PARENT'S PROMISE. It was previously called Rosebud Sunday as well. Anyway, because of the short nap, Abishai would NOT sit still during it. It was nuts! But we made it through!
We spent the evening preparing for the week by cleaning up, doing laundry, and Jared took two the of the kids to Aldi's to get food for his lunches this week. I actually feel like on top of things for the moment. I'll have to spend some more time on the taxes this week, but thankfully, we don't have anything going on (yet). I'm hoping it will be warm this week so we can get some outdoor time in. And if I'm feeling up to it, I might do a little garage clean up, and put away my sweaters, and such. We will move eventually, we just don't know where yet. I can start preparing now. Back to co op tomorrow!
|Wahoo! I did it! I lined up all the cars AND the horse (that Grandma Howell bought for the kids long ago).|
|Ok, now I'll dance about it!|
|I sit! I sit! And I'll sit between this person or that person or on this person, or let's go over the pew to the grandparents behind, and back again. Back and forth for an hour!|
|One of the pictures I gave to the moderators. I choose this one because of his smile and his love of cars.|
|Don't talk to me. You don't see me. I'm hiding from you.|
|I'm just going to bury my head in Justin's armpit, just because I can.|
|Cupcakes that match our shirt! Awesome! He didn't eat much of it though.|
|Perfect treats for a young child's event. Goldfish and cupcakes, Capri Sun drinks as well.|
|Keturah wanted to write a cursive letter "i" so Daddy helped her!|
|Promising to God and our church family we will raise Abishai in a Christian home, and share the Gospel with him and his siblings.|
|Certificate of Dedication. Woot! Woot!|
