Daybook Entry

In the great outdoors…Man, it was HOT today!! I had errands to run and was outside quite a bit and I was sweating. Poor Samuel had baseball and football practice and was dripping wet when he came home….at 6:40!

Within our walls…School has started! Woo-Hoo!
A heart of thanksgiving…I’m thankful to the Lord for all He has done for us. We aren’t living in the grandest way, but we are living a pretty grand life.
A heart of prayer…Everyday we’re making decisions, some life altering, some not. We’re just praying the decisions we make are the ones that are God honoring.
Random observations…The kids are sleeping later than normal lately. Samuel has to leave for school by 7:30 so he doesn’t get to sleep in, but the other three do. It used to be that they were up by the time the sun came up and I had to make a rule to keep them in their rooms until 7:00. My kids are growing up!
Thoughts from the kitchen…It was beef and broccoli tonight. I failed to make enough, so Stephen had to stop on the way home from a meeting and pick up fast food for himself. 
My silly children…

His could be my favorite picture of Samuel. He had to get caught up on his immunizations, it had been quite a while since he had bee to a doctor, much less had shots. He didn’t realize what was going to happen and when he realized he freaked out just a bit. The nurse, Samuel, and I were all laughing at him. 
Sounds of the moment…All the kids are in bed, it’s just Stephen and me. All I hear is the air conditioner.
What I’m wearing…khaki shorts, a new great tshirt from Old Navy, and blue socks.
A favorite thing from last week…Our 21st anniversary was Thursday and we had a great date night. We laughed and enjoyed being together more that night than we have in a long time.
On the calendar…I’m working on two women’s events. One is Friday and the other is in October. This time of year gets a little hectic.

Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me! I am the co-author of a blog called Life with My Sister and have a podcast called Abby As-Is. You can also follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube.
