What a crazy and emotional week this has been for our little family!
We started out our week heading to the ER Monday night with Jackson. He ended up cutting his leg with one of his pocket knives. I could hear him screaming before he ran into the house. He was more scared than anything else. After he showed me his leg, he asked me to pray for him. I was so proud of him and we spent some time in prayer before calling Jason and getting him into the car. Jackson was so brave and did great getting his stitches. He has 7 stitches and we will get them out later this week.
Jason and I were able to have a date night Friday. We had not been out (just the two of us) since New Years. We enjoyed our time away with dinner at Grille 29 and to see Riverdance. We also had another weekend of watching Joshua play ball. He hit another over the fence home run on Saturday! We all love watching him play and are so proud of him.
Last night was a pretty sad night for Jackson. He found that one of his fish had died. We had been worried about Gill for the past week or so. Jackson took it really hard and so we tried our best to make it all better. He is hoping to get another fish this week to replace his Gill.
We were able to see Joshua play a little more ball today, but the rain came in and they called the game. Abby Kate was invited to a Galentine’s Party with our 6th and 12th grade girls this afternoon. She had a really great time. I am so thankful for our youth group and the ways our older teens seek out opportunities to make the younger girls feel important and loved.
I’m hoping this next week will be pretty laid back. I did not finish a book this week, but I am hoping to have more time to read. I’m also hoping to have some time to crochet. We have a four day school week and we are looking forward to our long weekend.
