What We've Been Up To!

Nothing, to tell you the truth and I LOVE IT!!! This week has been pretty uneventful! This is the first week in a long time I haven't worked at least one day and I have to say that I am not complaining. I really thought that I wanted to work full time but I love being home!

We had a play date with Chelsea and Josiah on Thursday. Rachel and Chelsea play so well together. They played in the playroom and outside at the sand and water table and then on the slide. I hope that they grow up to be great friends like their mommies are. I am so blessed to have Krista in my life!

I went to physical therapy on Friday because it seems that giving birth and carrying around my not-so-tiny child has caused some of my discs in my back to slip....AND IT HURTS!!! I have noticed that I cannot stand for more than about 10 minutes at a time without needing to sit down...I can especially tell when I am in a patient's room at work. They are helping me with some exercises...I have to say, I am a little skeptical of whether or not it will help...such a good patient, I know....

Today the 3 of us went to the mall...can I just give you a suggestion that you probably already know....DO NOT GO TO THE MALL ON SATURDAY!!!! It was crazy but the weekend is the only time we can go all together. I needed some clothes that actually fit. I got 3 pairs of pants and 2 shirts from New York and Company...I ABSOLUTEY LOVE THAT STORE!!! If you ever just feel like buying me something, a gift card there would be fabulous! I also needed some new shoes so we went to JCPenney's where everything is on sale all the time...no luck with me finding any shoes, but Brice got some. I will probably visit my local Payless sometime this next week.

Tomorrow is church. I haven't been in awhile because I have worked the last two Sundays. I miss it. I don't like working on Sundays but sometimes it's needed. I love my church family and Rachel has such a fun time learning about Jesus with all of her friends.

Tonight Rachel and I were "rock-rocking" in the chair before I put her to bed and we said our prayers. She folded her chubby little hands and attempted to close her eyes. We thanked God for everyone and then asked Him for a good nights rest and good day tomorrow and said Amen. Rachel said, "AMAN." So sweet. Then I began to tell her about all of the things that God made. When I said, "God made Mommy and Daddy and Rachel" she repeated me so sweetly. Then she kept saying, "AMAN." I just love the innocence of a child. I just pray daily that God can allow me to be the kind of parent that always teaches my child about Him and that she will grow up knowing what's important in life...I missed out on that as a child and it is so important to me to be a godly parent. God teaches me new things everyday about parenting and I am so blessed that He gave me the privilege of being Rachel's Mommy. I just love her!
