* Starting to see that I don’t really have time for blogging. Can’t believe it, because I enjoy it so much. Shaun originally said I had to blog everyday. But this is impossible I think for a working mom of 3 1/2. Not giving up yet, just acknowledging that it’s harder than I thought. I think I’ll be a twice a week blogger.
*Started changing out the closets this weekend (putting away summer for fall). What a task! Taking off work tomorrow to finish. My house looks like the Goodwill. There are clothes everywhere!
*Kendi had her baptism interview today. Afterwards, we decided she isn’t quite ready. She’s only 6. While she clearly knows who Jesus is and what he did on the cross, I’m not 100% convinced she understands the significance of it, and the necessity for baptism. We will wait until she’s ready for sure. Tae will be baptized next month.
*Buckhead Church started its KidStuf service today. It was awesome! It’s a production they’ll do once a month that brings kids and their parents together to explore what they call the Big Idea. I can’t imagine how much work and planning has to go into these types of events. This month’s Big Idea is Self-Control. The best part is that they give each family a really attractive take home pack to help with applying the big idea throughout the month. My kids are excited and so are we. I love this church!
*Looks like October is going to be a busy month for the Courageous Church plant. Shaun is planning a few events for the last few weeks of the month. He has a lot on his plate. I’ll be glad when our launch team has congealed such that it won’t all be on his shoulders.
*Think we are going to stick with the name Savannah Grace for the new baby. Shaun and I are both really attached to the name. I wrote a post about the name Savannah not really having a meaning. But a comment left by a woman named Cyndi really helped me see it in a different light. Check it out here.
*Been trying to teach Eze about the new baby. My belly is pretty big now, so I’ve been pointing to it saying that there is a baby girl in there. He just turned 2 last month, and I can tell this is making no sense to him. Today he pointed to his own belly and told Shaun there was a baby girl in there. I thought this was hillarious. I don’t think he’ll get it until we actually bring her home.
*Starting to wonder what it will be like to have to raise a boy among so many girls. He’s all boy, and has to resort to playing with me or his daddy for entertainment. The girls play barbies and he’ll pick one up every now and then, but he’d much rather toss a ball and bat. I’m amazed because we never taught him to prefer these things, but it’s obviously just in him. Also afraid he will become VERY spoiled with a bunch of mother hens waiting on him hand a foot. Anyone know a boy raised like this?
