~After 13 months, I ended the book fast. I couldn't believe how long I agonized over buying two books. I looked and looked for a third so I could get free shipping, but couldn't find anything that I could justify buying right now. That, my friends, is ALL GOD! If you're wondering what I bought...well, it was this and this.
~CJ's more than halfway through the 5th grade. Next year, my girl will be a middle-schooler. Wow! and Ugh! all at the same time. She set an academic goal for herself at the beginning of the year, and she's halfway to achieving it. R and I are so proud of her!
~Although the girls' Bible study has ended, I'm still having a great time with them. They're hoping for a weekend retreat, so I'm trying to work it out.
~I've gotten my reading mojo back. After a recent reading struggle, I wasn't sure I could convince myself to ever read again. Yeah, right.
~Girls' night out at a Japanese steakhouse. It's always nice to get away with the girls for a bit, even if Starbucks was closed! Maybe next time, Alyce!
~I've been talking so much about Peru, that I think I've forgotten to tell you that R is heading back to Waveland, Mississippi. Can you believe they're still rebuilding after Hurricane Katrina? I'm so thankful my husband feels called to this mission...it's certainly his gift.
~In an effort to be healthier and thinner before I leave for Peru, I've enlisted the help of my own personal trainer, R. He's been such a blessing, encouraging me and showing me the best way to exercise. Just another item to put on the long, long list of reasons I love this man!
I need to keep my nose to the grindstone at home this weekend, but I'll be back next week to share even more about trusting.
