...I had it on good authority that, and I quote, "Adrienne crushed a lady bug with her bare hands!" Maybe it was the first, maybe not. Hard to know about that sort of thing.
...I got on my parents' new trampoline for the first time. The kids have been jumping NON-STOP for the past week, but it wasn't until yesterday that I ventured up there with Marianna. I laid flat on my back and closed my eyes while she bounced in circles around me. It was almost like getting a massage.
...we had vegetarian burrito casserole for dinner, and it was delicious!
...I finished the invitations to Adrienne's second birthday party. In less than two weeks, she is going to be two. Oh my goodness.
...I ate some of the homemade strawberry jam that Marianna and I made after our two strawberry picking adventures last week. I could have eaten it by the spoonful.
...an opportunity presented itself for me to think long and hard about how to truly "shepherd my child's heart." I want so badly to guide my girls through life in a loving and biblically sound way, but sometimes it's difficult in the middle of the situation to be 100% positive exactly what to do. I was reassured (for the zillionth time) that parenting is something that must be done by looking to God constantly for the wisdom and strength needed to be the mom He has called me to be.
...after watching American Idol, it was confirmed that I really don't care who wins this year. I hardly even have a favorite.
...I went to bed before 10:00. Can't remember the last time I did that, but boy, do I feel rested this morning.
