Friday -

I didn't take a single photo.

Produce co-op filled the first 1/2 of the day.

I took Jamin to the library and stopped by the gym on my way home! YES - got those 5 negative points for the day. ::Snort:: I knew I'd need them because I had a Girls' Night Out coming. I know I have banked/bonus points but I wanted to stay within the days points. I did. Shew...and I ATE a full meal and a dessert at Peasant Village.

Morphed right into the evening here.....I went out with the Chaplain's wives for a girl's night out. It was a great time for all to meet Tammy (our new wife) and to visit with Mandy (dh is deployed). Martha, Tammy and I walked over to catch the water lilies but it was still to early to see the spectacular blooms.

Jared spent the afternoon with Josiah. Josiah came over for the evening. Jamin was off. They had pizza and were watching an old Don Knotts movie when I got home. We finished out the rest of Family Friday Night. I love watching Stacia demonstrate her love for her big brothers. When Jared left to spend the afternoon with Josiah and later when Josiah left to go home she had to walk out to the car and told them she loved them and promised she'd see them again. I've decided to follow her lead with friends and family. I may not tell my friends I love them each time they leave my home....but I could follow them out to the car and let them know that even the small leave takings are important to me. LOL

A well-rounded day.

I liked your thought on small leave takings. We aren't much of a huggy family, but lately I've taken to given dd a hug everytime we depart! Some songs on the radi lately have reminded me that you just never know when someone's time will come and so I'm trying to intentionally give the older kids more hugs!

Honestly, I'm realizing that in less than a year we'll leave here and leave Cy...small goodbyes just mean more these days.
