Back at It

I was blessed to spend all day Friday and half of Saturday at a conference up at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest.  It's about 40 minutes away from our house.  I got to hear some great teaching and enjoyed some wonderful fellowship.  However, there was a part of me that was afraid of what was going on back home.  The kids can get a little unruly when I'm not around, but the good news is that they were well-behaved. Fortunately, my fears went unrealized this time.

Amanda got some Papa Murphy's pizza on Friday night, which the kids enjoyed.  Then on Saturday morning our neighbors took Lily to some kind of fair.  Meanwhile, Noah stayed home to play Wii and watch videos.  I got home a little after lunchtime and took the kids out for the afternoon.  We hit our normal haunts including PetSmart and Play N Trade games.  I took the kids home after church because Amanda stayed behind to help collect clothes for our upcoming clothing swap.  We enjoyed risotto and watched the second half of the Ohio State game online.  The kids and I finished the day with some PS2 games.  Overall, it was a good one.

Today is going to break our streak of hiking on Sunday mornings because it is foggy and drizzly.  However, I do think that I am going to take the kids out.  There has been another request for Chuck E. Cheese.  We'll see what happens.  All I know is that I'm glad to be back in the swing.
