So Busy!!

Why is it that EVERY weekend flies by?  

Although the weather was supposed to be rainy - it ended up being beautiful!!  We had dinner Friday night with our friends, the Harper's.  They are friends of ours from church.  Their girls are the exact same ages as Norah and Lucy.  We have all been so busy that we haven't seen each other much outside of church.  

Norah had soccer on Saturday morning and Sunday evening.  She is doing a great job!  She really seems to enjoy it.  At first I wasn't convinced that she would make it through the season.  She likes practice and now seems to enjoy the games as well.  At first, she backed away from the ball and could care less about actually touching the ball with her foot.  Now, she runs right into a group of girls and tries to kick the ball away.  She is great at dribbling and doesn't hesitate as much when someone comes at her.  

We had dinner at a park with the Greene's and Diehl's on Saturday evening.   We had great weather and a great time catching up on each other's lives!!  Pictures to come!

Sunday after soccer, the Morrison's came over for dinner!  We haven't seen them in about 3 weeks - crazy since they live so close!  Again, we had great weather, so we ate outside!!  Heather brought a yummy salad - spinach, red onion, strawberries and a poppy seed dressing (Heather, can I get that recipe?)  It was delicious!  

The girls were at MDO today while Daphne and I walked with a friend and her new baby.  It was strange walking with just one child!  

Tonight our small group Bible study is coming over for dinner and Bible study!  Whew!  I think we have 2 calm days the next couple of days!  Thanks goodness!

So happy we could get together on Saturday night! I'd love to see some pictures (when you get time, of course).
