A Perfect Ten

We were still out of school last Monday and it was almost 70 degrees so we put on shorts and t-shirts and went for a long walk on a new trail.  Our town has a TON of the nicest trails for walking and bike riding.  I LOVE them.  

We had a great day.  But it was time to go back to school! 

The girls wanted to sleep in braids so they would have wavy hair to start second semester! They went back with all smiles! I can't believe the year is half over! 

Will Holden and I started back to Bible Study on Tuesday.  

I'm doing Authentic by James Macdonald.  I think it's going to be really good.  I love his studies! 

Wednesday Will Holden went back to school.  I'm not going to lie - I had a little skip in my step.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE being with my kids.  But I'm also someone who just likes to be alone.  I need a few hours a lone a week or I get kind of crazy.  So after 3 weeks of togetherness during Christmas break - it was nice to have a few hours asleep.  I got my hair done and ran some errands! 

Saturday we celebrated Harper's birthday a few days early.  She invited just a couple of friends to go out to lunch and to a movie.  We ate at chilis and were going to the 12:40 show of A Dog's Way Home.  In typical Kelly fashion - I pulled up our tickets at lunch and realized that I had bought them for FRIDAY.  (I bought them ON Friday but thought I had gotten them for Saturday).  I called the theatre in a panic and they were so nice.  They got us tickets for a later showing.  It actually worked out great because we went home and had cake and opened presents and then went to the movie.  

She wanted an ice cream cake.  She always gets ice cream cakes and usually from Dairy Queen but I thought I would try Cold Stone this year.  I got a small cake that would be enough for the kids but wouldn't leave any to tempt Scott and I since we are on Keto.  It looked SOOOO good  but we didn't cave.  

Harper and two of her best friends.  I always pray for her to have sweet friends.  It's one of my biggest hopes for her.  

Why does she look SO old? Ten feels so grown up! I think it's just a great age.  I hate that she's growing so fast but I also LOVE LOVE this age and watching her become the person she is.  

I really hope her wishes come true.  After the movie we came back and the girls all ended up staying for dinner.  The kids had pizza and I fixed steaks and salad for me and Scott and Steve came over because Laurie and Emily were out of town.  The guys watched the Cowboy game while I took the girls home.  

Yesterday we had church and then we walked to lunch with our friends.  It was FREEZING COLD but it's not a long walk.  It was fun to visit.  Hollis went home with Joseph for a couple of hours to play.  The kids started back to choir and activities at church and then Scott and I went up to pray.  Our church has started a new prayer time on Sunday nights - it's kind of come and go to just pray over our church and any requests or needs or anything really.  

And now it's Monday again! Hope you have a great one!
