We have been a busy family the last few weeks. I love being busy but am also looking forward to the next few weekends with not too much on our calendar.
We dedicated Ella at church on mothers day weekend. It was a special weekend. The day before there was a brunch held at church for all the parents dedicating their child. I was in charge of childcare and food which ended up going very smoothly. We had eight kids get dedicated which was a small number compared to the prior years. Our church is doing dedication twice a year to try and make it more personal. We were to choose a verse for our child and Corey and I choose: Proverbs 31:30" Charm is deceitful and beauty is is passing, But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised." Corey and I both felt that we wanted a verse for Ella to live by and think this fits perfectly.
We also had a garage sale in May which was a huge success. It was a little bit of work to get it around but I had fun organizing and getting ready for it. Its a great feeling having all the closets and basement cleaned out. One of the pictures is of Ethan going through our hat,scarf and glove bin. He wanted to try them all on, it was too cute.
We have been spending lots of time outside swinging and sliding. During Ella's morning nap the other day Ethan swung for about 45 min, he loves it!
The weather has been amazing. I am praying it is here to stay!
