Just Stuff

Happy Wednesday!  I love this day...this glorious, middle of the week day.  Even though some heart-wrenching things are going on in the lives of some of my friends, I'm thankful for another day.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my coffee this week.  If you're wondering why, it's because of this:


Coffee tastes so much sweeter when it's drank out of a cup that was given to you in love.  Jonah loves to love on people, and he gets so much joy from giving to others.  This was from him and Drew...given to me on Mother's day.  I am so in love with this...but even more than that, I am in love with the precious boys who call me Mom.  :-)

Yesterday was field day for the third grade.  They were so excited about it, and I am now excited that it's over!  Ha!  It's not my favorite, but this year was much more pleasant.  I took my big 'ole Mary Poppins umbrella and hid from the sun.  My dad and mom-in-love tagged along with me.  We had fun watching these little guys:


The above was taken during their picnic lunch.  Are they not the sweetest little things??


And we cheered them on for this:



It was a fun afternoon.  I had to leave to go get Graham and Drew, and then they were able to see some old teacher's. 

Last night we celebrated Mimi's birthday...with no cake.  And no pictures.  :-(  That makes me so sad, but I literally ran out of time.

I don't think she minded too much.

Then we had a band concert to go to.  I am so proud of Graham...the seventh grade band sounded amazing!  It's always a fun night, and my teenager even got an award!


The one on the left was given to him for being a section leader.  The other two are ribbons for solo ensemble's he's performed over the last two years.  I cannot believe he's about to enter his last year of middle school. 

I made the mistake of blinking, and now it's almost over.

Today is a big day for Drew, too...he gets his cast off!  Hallelujah!!  He said the first thing he's going to do when he gets home is take a shower.  :-)  God love him.

Well, I need to finish lunch so I can get to work.  Only five more days left for me after today!  I cannot wait until summer starts. 

Amen.

Love to all!

My cup DOES runneth over! That's why my blog is titled what it is...I am truly overflowing with blessings. God has been infinitely good to me. Thank you, my friend! They did good, didn't they? And Jonah was cute and all sneaky about it. Love you!
