Lucy and our Backdoor neighbor Oakley. They have been in class together for the past two years!
After field day, we went back home to have some rest time. Henry refused to take a nap at home. As soon as we got in the car, this guy was out!
I had to check Lucy out early for an allergist appointment.
The brothers showed off their muscles.
The sweet birthday girl!
Nail painting is always a winner for little girls!
Saturday, we spent the day at the ball park for a soccer tournament. Lucy's team played three games! The girls were exhausted by the end but managed to score a combined (all three games) 27 points and only let 2 goals past them. This was our first tournament and it was only one day and it was called the fun fest. Bounce houses and soccer= Lucy's love language!
Alright, honesty coming up. I don't love to spend my Saturdays at the ball field and I definitely don't push my kids to play things. Yes, they should be active but I'm not going to make them do things they hate. Lucy loves soccer and she is good at it and that is fun to watch.
Remember my simplified living rules?
Does this glorify God? Lucy will tell you that God made her fast and with a lot of energy and that is how she runs so fast on the field and doesn't get tired. When she prays at nights, "God, thank you so much for helping in that game. I was getting tired and you gave me energy to keep running. You helped us win by making that team not very good..." When you are playing with your talents and giving credit to God, than yes, he is being glorified.
Does this strengthen our family unit and not just an individual?
One soccer practice and one game doesn't take away from our family time. Henry and I get to have special park time while Lucy is at practice and we do the games as a family. We do not play select ball because 3 practices a week and 3 games a week does not strengthen my family unit but only that one individual...
Do you know who loaned us the tent?... Thank you, manna and g-daddy.
Sunday, we woke up and went to church.
Big praise: This was the first time that Jonathan was able to attend church on Chemo Week! I'm so thankful for our new Nausea medicine! Friday, Saturday and Sunday are his hardest days and he sat on the ball field all day Saturday, went to church and even worked in the yard on Sunday! Praise the Lord.
The Cobles brought Henry home and the kids got to play for a bit.
Love this picture of Ryan and Jonathan with their mini-mes in front!
God is bigger than this and Jesus can fix-it.
