I got home from Bible study at 10:00. I was planning on going straight to bed upon arriving home but I am all hopped up on caffeine. So here I sit. Alone. In silence. Ahhhhh.
Today we really had fun! We played two games of Operation and there is strong evidence to suggest that neither of my boys will be surgeons. I don't mean to disparage their character or abilities but they think it is really funny to "miss" the bread basket and make Sam's nose light up from the buzzer. Tell me honestly, would you want someone who thinks it is fall out of your chair funny to make a mistake operating on you? I don't think so.
We did get our regular skill subjects in, but history took a back seat to afternoon chaos. Jeremy is on his way to reading and I love the little grin he gets when he knows he is doing well. After lunch we played Connect Four and I have to point out some moves to Jeremy when he gets stuck. When we first began playing Connect Four he didn't really understand the concept and thought if he had four checkers anywhere in the slots, he had won. Funny!
Tonight in my small group at church there was a girl there that I went to high school with. We reminisced about being cheerleaders. She was always one of the girls on the top of the pyramid while I was the "base." "Base" is just code for "You are too heavy to lift." She was always someone that I got along with very well and tonight I was able to get a glimpse into her life as a wife and mother. It is always interesting to me how we move in and out of each others lives. I am glad I have been given the opportunity to know her better.
I think my caffeine buzz is wearing off. I am headed for b.e.d!!
