1. Garage Sale
My sister and I had a garage sale this weekend. We have been planning it for several months now, but of course I put off all my organizing and pricing until the two weeks before. It was a lot of work. It was so hot and windy this weekend too. I was beginning to wonder if this garage sale stuff was worth it. But we ended up having lots of fun even though we were sweating like crazy and my ankles were swelling (already?!). We even made some money! Thanks to the sweet friends and family who took time to help us this weekend.
My grandma called last week and wondered if we could meet them at the park for a picnic. Levi's cousins came too. Ellie loves to help Levi...she is the "big" cousin. The kids played and then we ate a picnic lunch that my grandma had packed for us. Thanks Grandma and Grandpa. Levi loved our trip to the park!
3. Levi's New Ride
Some friends of ours sent us home with a new toy for Levi. Let's just say he thinks it is AWESOME...a four wheeler of his very own. It has a little button that you can push to make it go. I'm sure he will be spending lots of time on his new four wheeler this summer. Borrowed toys from friends are the best!
4. Birthday Party
Lindi from Love the Day asked if she could feature Levi's birthday party on her beautiful blog. How fun to see all of those pictures again. I loved celebrating Levi turning one. You can see the party feature here. Make sure to look around Love the Day while you are there. Lindi has some awesome party features and ideas. I will definitely be back!
5. 30 Day Challenge
Today is day five of the 30 Day Challenge. How are you doing? I hope you didn't think that I gave up because of my lack of blogging...the lack of blogging was because of the busy garage sale weekend. I did have to set my alarm extra early on those garage sale days. In the past I would have just made excuses and said the weekend was too busy to squeeze in my quiet time, but it was so good for me to schedule time with the Lord even on those busy days. I think weekends are the hardest...when Joel is around more and our schedule is different. It has been a challenge for me to make my time with the Lord a priority even on those days.
If you are wondering what the 30 Day Challenge is you can read all about it here. And feel free to join in even if you are late!
I have a Father's Day giveaway planned for this week, so check back. Okay, five things is all for tonight. I have to get to bed and get that alarm set for tomorrow!
