This week was our kick-off into fall activities, though we won't start school until next week (Aug 27th). Beth started ballet on Monday, she's at the same studio again and I keep having to re-count to make sure this is accurate, but this is her 4th year. Yes, that's right! She started when she was 2, almost 3!
I hesitate to say this but I think the boys will be easier this year.
We always head outside to play while Beth is in class, because the
waiting room is small and the boys are better off playing outside
I didn't have a chance to take many photos of Beth since I was outside with the boys, but I took this one through the window and liked it, she looks so grownup and serious to me. I know she's growing up, but something about her this year just makes her seem so much older.
And today Luke started gymnastics again! He is in the same age group but in a different class, with mostly boys. He loves his class and says his favorite part is the trampoline. He always looks like he's having tons of fun!
(he chose to pose like this on his own)
And of course, little Jack is a trooper, playing with me while his older siblings are in their classes. He's sort of a goober, staring at me, smiling, then running away to see if I'll chase him. At ballet he runs for the parking lot, and in gymnastics he runs to try to ring the bell that hangs on the wall for the gymnasts. You know he's laughing the whole time. I wonder what this little boy is going to want to do when he's a bit older...
I'm restless. Aching for God. I'm getting better at sitting still for awhile, but my mind is constantly moving, seeking God's will, and yearning for completeness in Him. I succeed and fail every day, but in His infinite goodness He still loves me. And He loves you too! Only in Him will we find our peace.
