And we're back...

Week 10 is in the books!  It was a long week with all possible monthly activities converging at the same time.   We slid into home and besides grocery shopping (two trips out because I forgot something) and  driving practice, we've been home bodies today.  It seems like the weekends are for resting these days.  


Tera had her first college exam this week and feels confident she got an A.  She has been working so hard AND working ahead in some subjects.  I love her French 2 cultural project pictured below that isn't even due for another TWO weeks.  

Daniel has a full schedule this semester playing in two ensembles--a flute choir and in the local college community band.  This is his first experience with a large ensemble AND weekly rehearsals.  He's doing great managing to get his schoolwork done on top of his extra commitments.  He has matured a great deal over the last year.

I've been experimenting with a few new recipes.  This 20 Minute Tuscan Chicken with Penne Pasta got 5 thumbs up!  I substituted chicken breasts for the rotisserie and fresh for frozen spinach.  Using whole wheat pasta made this an even healthier recipe that we will definitely make again! 

As we approach Tera's birthday, we've got quite a lot going on around here.   We'll be celebrating her birthday next weekend.  I cannot believe my oldest child will be SEVENTEEN!!!!   

Michael is the ring bearer in a friend's wedding.  We tried on his complete outfit before taking everything to be pressed for the wedding.  He looks so handsome!  He is excited and nervous at the same time about all the people looking at him. 

My goal this next week and a half is to breathe and put one foot in front of the other.   I feel that tightening in my chest that happens this time of year and I'm fighting it back. 

"I will exalt you, Lord,
for you lifted me out of the depths
and did not let my enemies gloat over me.
Lord my God, I called to you for help,
and you healed me.

You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead;
you spared me from going down to the pit.

Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people;
praise his holy name.

For his anger lasts only a moment,
but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may stay for the night,
but rejoicing comes in the morning."

Psalm 30:1-5
