What a whirlwind of a September weekend! Two birthdays to celebrate, family in town, and (maybe) a storm to prepare for. I’m wiped out.
We had a birthday party for my oldest, involving a volcano cake, and a complete change of plans last minute. Fortunately it all worked out smoothly, and our rain plan, rock wall climbing, worked just as well, if not better than the original.
Our families came into town for the event, which meant fun and also cleaning. We’re coming off of a bout of poison ivy in our house, so we’re still catching up with laundry.
And finally, this storm. We’re feeling the after-effects of Hurricane Florence where we live, and while evacuations happened and school was canceled, I can’t seem to notice any dramatic differences from yesterday to today. I know weather is not an exact science, but they sure hyped this storm up for us.
I think personally, I feel a little disconnected from life. So much focus on birthday events means I am not really in touch with what’s going on with my friends and even in my relationship with God. Now that things are dying down, I am going to be intentional about connecting with people in my life I care about.
Anyway, here’s some Instagram updates. I’m looking forward to returning back to our regularly-scheduled program, even though this weekend was great.
