I feel like Juicy Fruit.

Holy Fragments, Batman!
This week has chewed me up, spit me out, then chewed me up some more. And I'm not sure it's done with me yet.

Soccer has officially started, and both kids got on the team Andrew was on last season, which is what we wanted. Yesterday, Elayna went back to the orthopedic doc, and her thumb is healing nicely so she's been released & just needs to wear her splint during sports for the next 2 weeks. She is so happy to not have to wear the splint all the time; she said it was very annoying!

I haven't been able to read your blogs much this week so I feel out of touch with everyone. It's been so crazy here, and one night we had a storm and I couldn't get online at all. Not even through my phone. AND the cable was out. It was like Little House on the Prairie or something!

In the midst of this crazy week, I managed to have a long phone conversation with one best friend and a real live, in person visit with another best friend, both in the same day! It was wonderful. I've been friends with both of these girls since high school and they are like family.

This week Andrew told us that he's ready to be baptized. He announced that quite unexpectedly on Wednesday. The girls & John were all baptized last year, but Andrew didn't feel ready. But now he is, so we're going to talk to our Pastor about it on Sunday. We're very excited and proud of him.

I don't have a whole lot of frags floating around today. I think it's because I'm exhausted. Physically, mentally, emotionally, and any other way that it's possible to be exhausted. I've got it alllll covered. Maybe I'll get to relax this weekend? Ha! Doubt it.

Hope y'all have a great weekend, and don't forget to visit Mrs 4444 for more Friday Fragments!

That's exciting news about Andrew wanting to be baptized! I like your analogy to "Little House On The Prairie" when the cable and Internet go out. I feel the same way!

Stopping by from FF.

Woohoo Andrew!!! He sounds like a fine young man.

My youngens always thought it was a "party" when we lost power out here on the Ponderosa. Boy, was that another life ago!

Good to hear Elayna's thumb is on the mend.

You get some rest girl and have a wonderfully blessed weekend!

Amy said...

That's great of Andrew!

Try to get some rest. You need it so you don't get sick!
