This was a crazy, busy week. Why does the summer schedule go from zero to 100 in a matter of days the week before school starts? I never get used to that last crazy push.
We had so much fun with Steve's mom here, she left Monday. Then my week was so busy, I almost forgot that that my nest would start emptying at the end of the week....almost. As I type this, things are very quiet in the Bowyer house......got mixed emotions about that.
On to some very exciting news.....many of you may remember Darla who used to be part of our P365 group.....well, her daughter is going to be on the new season of The Voice!!! It starts Sept 10 with the blind auditions. I am so excited to watch and root for Devyn. You can go here to see the promo and see Devyn in the clip!!! Maybe some day I will be able to say "that star once stayed at my house!" ha ha!!!
Here's my week:
Made bread for Steve's sermon illustration today...one with yeast and one without.
Steve's mom left today and I spent the rest of the day just relaxing. Lily and I enjoyed some time out by the pool.
Jared has to have a tux for college for his concerts. There is a place in downtown LR that sells used ones...he looks so handsome in it and it fit perfect!
Today was the 1st day of school for my kids HS.....I really enjoyed my calm, quiet morning!!
Have been working hard getting the children's department staffed for the year at church....it is always a stressful project and I might have had a mini meltdown today about it. But God is good and I am almost completely staffed now!!!
Our neighbors brought us home some wonderful peaches from their trip and I made a peach pie for our last family night dinner tonight. I taught Alyssa how to make her crust from scratch. So sad to think it is the last time all 5 of us will have an evening together till thanksgiving!
Jason left this morning........and the emptying has begun..... :(
woke up to a rainy, thundery day.....perfect for french toast!!!
I also made a nice revelation today.......empty nest = less house work! My kitchen actually stayed clean from yesterday morning, through the day and night until this morning....amazing!
Hope you guys had a great week! Can't wait to see!
