We finished table and couch school. We participated in four Bible studies (2 PWOCs, 1 PMOC, 1 Family study). M&Ms (moms and mentors) met this week; we all enjoy this small group opportunity. The kids play with little ones and I play with Mommies. PWOC Page Turners met to discuss A.D. 30 - definitely a play session for moi. I said goodbye to a mentor and enjoyed two opportunities to connect over lunch with dear friends. Michael and I attended four hours of retirement related meetings - one with a VA rep and one with a financial planner. Michael worked a full week - one highlight being a conversation with his soon arriving replacement. We look forward to meeting them and passing the baton. We had numerous texts from Gherkins and even a phone call or two. I hit at least 10K steps daily - often prompted to a second evening workout - meetings and school take a lot of time but don't take a lot of steps.
There were plenty of moments for play. We explored new "healthier" recipes...the kids like the no-bake chocolate/peanut butter/coconut oil cookies. I like them too much - enough said. These were billed as "sugar free" but with honey included in the mix - it's false billing. They are still a better option for the kids than the traditional ones.
We visited briefly with a friend who has been off work and out of chapel due to surgery.
We all made minor progress on our various "fun reading."
Saturday is usually our family rest/play day. Michael wasn't scheduled to preach - but is. That

Wise Moms realize even big boys need time to play - and boy's play will not, on the norm, resemble girl's play whatsoever. Proof, once again, that anything can become a game and my boys are truly happiest when burning off some energy....and the house functions much better if they do so regularly. ::snort::
