It actually felt like spring today! And yesterday, I suppose. Yesterday was bike day, and today we actually made it to church!
I picked cute clothes out for the kids last night already so everything would go quicker this morning. Brady got showered and ready, and then he hung out with the kids through breakfast while I got myself ready. Its our usual Sunday morning routine. As per that usual routine, as I came downstairs, everyone seemed to be in a bit of a crazy rush, playfully running around half dressed while Brady was packing up the diaper bag. I fell into my usual role of wrangling the kids into the boys room and getting them all dressed. This is how it always goes. We’re always scattered and scrambling as we leave, barely making it to church on time. Today felt exactly the same!
Until we were loaded in the van 25 minutes early.
It was such a strange problem to have, haha! We were totally caught off guard, and then a bit stumped about what to do! It was definitely too early to go to church, but there wasn’t enough time to actually bring everyone back in after all the hubbub of buckling them into their seats and such. So instead, we aged about fifty years, and just drove to church reeeaaallyyyyy slowwwwwlyyyyy.
Obviously, we were nicely settled when everyone started making their way into church. It wasn’t bad 🙂 We lived. The kids were all super cute and well behaved. Except Solly. He was SO loud and SO wriggly and was just NOT wanting to be held. He wanted to jump and yodel. He wanted to play with his shoes but did NOT want to sit down to do it. He was just too busy for church today, haha! I ended up standing with him in the back for most of the service, which isn’t super conducive to being at church and listening, but I ended up chatting a little bit with a couple of other young moms from our church who I don’t often get a chance to visit with. I really enjoyed it 🙂
After church, we had my parents over for the day. We had waffles and fruit and breakfast sausage for lunch, and spent the afternoon playing cards and listening to the rain. It was really really nice. It felt like exactly what Sunday should feel like.
Of course, now, because its Sunday, and Sunday always wipes our kids out, I can hear everyone dissolving down in the living room. Its been a good, relaxed day, but Sunday routines (or lack there of) tend to tire everyone out really well. I know I’m tired as well.
Not bed time yet though! First the kids. Then squats. (gross) Then a soak. Then bed time.
Have a great night, everyone! I hope you have good long sleeps to bring in your weeks 🙂
