Projects, Preparation & Prayer

This week was our last before school starts. Tyson starts this Tuesday, and I got back to the ole grind last Wednesday.

Last week was a busy one. Here are just a few of the things it included:

~ A very hot trip to the St. Louis Zoo. (The heat index was 106 the day we went.)

~ Back to School shopping

~ An attempted trip to the art museum, which was closed that day.

~ A trip to a special doctor (more on that later; all is well)

~ Meet the Teacher Night

~ A sleepover at Nani & Popi's house (for Tyson, not for me)

~ Knit Night

~ Basement cleaning

~ Lots of laundry

~ BBQ chicken in the crock pot (who wants to stand over a grill when the heat index is 111? Not my husband!)

~ My first day of meetings,meetings, meetings

~ A significant and worrisome decline in the cleanliness & organization of our home.

I hope to continue to blog at least a couple of days a week throughout this school year. It's calming, centering & fun... and those are things I need to keep making time for this year.

I've got a few photos to share, and something new I've been doing for a while.

Mostly, I'm turning my attention to getting the house, schedule & family organized & ready for the insanity that is about to be unleashed over here at the purple brick road. I'm struggling with the place God has me in this season, my anxiety is flaring up like a four alarm library fire, and I caught the cold that Riley brought home (two days after starting back to preschool). If you have the chance, please pray for me, kind friend. I am utterly certain I cannot do this all by myself.


  1. Let's pray for each other sweet sister...that He carries us through this tough season and that He gives us eyes to see what is important to Him and what we just need to let go of...

    Much Love,

  2. I will say extra prayers for you. You don't have to do it alone, spiritually or physically. If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know. I love ya more than chocolate...and we KNOW how I feel about my chocolate! :)


I would love to hear from you (as long as you're not a robot.)!
