Abundantly Blessed - In just one weekend...

I am finally getting around to posting about our amazing October - there was not one single day that was not scheduled (well, except the 18th - but I did manage to fill that one up at the last minute too!) The highlight was the middle weekend which started with Erin's Sweet 16 Formal Dinner Party for her friends. What a surprising, incredible, fun night. The kids just stepped up to the plate so well. They were well behaved, polite and so sophisticated. I was thouroughly impressed. Thanks so much to John and Yvette and Janet for helping - we couldn't have done it without you! The next night was dinner club at Hoffman's. They had us all in the dungeon in the garage. It was spooky and beautiful all at once! Delicious meal and amazing company!
Then Sunday morning was Erin's confirmation service. I am pretty sure I cried through the entire thing! I was overwhelmed by the significance of the occasion, moved by Pastor Morrie's poignant sermon and so touched by my baby girl singing from her heart. It was so wonderful!

I wish I could hear your kids singing sometime.
And, we are still living parallel lives with all the busyness. Last night at 7:30 I met Brad in the driveway as he was coming and I was going. We made the comment about the constant going, going, going. It would be sad if it all went away though.
