Girl Time

Last night the girls and I welcomed Travis and Abel back home after their three day trip to St. Louis.  While they were away watching the Cardinals play baseball, we…

…ate hot dogs and baked beans for supper (one of Amariah’s choice meals–and mine, too!).

…turned the air conditioner in the house from 73 to 75.  (Unlike my husband, I’m not a big fan of rooms that feel air conditioned.)

…had a chance to talk to each other (because Abel wasn’t here to fill the air with his incessant chatter). :-)

…took a long walk and enjoyed the sounds of the outdoors.  (You should have seen me–carrying one and pushing two, I must have been quite the sight!) :-)

…worked on potty training…

…and obedience training…

…and attitude training.

…prayed together that God will make us into the women He desires for us to be.

…went shopping without spending money.  (If I would have had a dollar for every “You’ve got your hands full” and “You’re a busy mom” comment I heard, I could have spent lots of money.)

…slept through the night!  Oh, wait… that was only Amariah and Elliana.  (Isabel, our time is coming soon… right?)  😉

How thankful I am that God has blessed me with a “handful” of daughters!
