Back in the Groove

I feel like we kinda had to "re-enter" our Pennsylvania life after being back in Arkansas for such a long time. It just took a bit longer than expected to get back in our groove. This was a fun, relaxing weekend with just enough busyness ... It was good.
Saturday Danny and Aaron umpired the church softball league's Championship Playoffs. The kids and I had fun going out to the ball field and mingling with the other families cheering on their team. There were lots of kids and lots of Popsicles, so my kids were happy campers.
That evening we got to go to the Wesleyan church's (where I think we've finally decided will be our church home for our Pennsylvania stay!) softball-end-of-the-year bonfire. It was a great time. Their church group has been incredibly welcoming and is filled with so many sweet people. I am loving getting to know the women, they are such a great group.
At the bonfire we roasted hot dogs and s'mores, the kids played in the creek and ran all over the Gorsline's BEAUTIFUL property, I indulged in my first "mountain pie," and everyone just enjoyed the cool night. It was so strange to be sitting outside in mid-July crowded around a fire because there was a chill in the air ... Definitely not something I've experienced in Arkansas!!
While Emily and I were sitting by the fire snuggling babies and snacking on mountain pies we got tickled. She said, "do you ever just sit and think, how did we get here? Like how am I all the sudden friends with Rebekah Boone and living in Pennsylvania? We laughed. And laughed. And laughed some more. Being here has been such a big lesson on how insignificant my plans are, and how big God is. We aren't promised tomorrow, we don't know what the future will hold, all we can do is put our trust in Him and believe He has good for us. And I do.

I have an itsy bitsy crush on Isaiah Knox ... And he knows it.

We had sucha fun night! Dalton has not stopped asking to go back! Thanks Wesleyans for including us!

Today we had a restful day and then got to go on a date with the Knox's. They were SUPER sweet to take us out for Aaron's birthday. Our options were kinda limited after our Sunday night dinner since most everything was closed. Somehow we ended up at the Tioga Down's casino. It was a sight to behold. I do think we'll bring the kids back soon when they're racing ... Dalton Boone would love that.

Thankful for a fun-filled weekend with friends!
