So the blogging break was unplanned. Sometimes those are the best kind because they mean that I was busy. And busy can be good, especially when it involves visiting some of my favorite people and working for Noonday.
Here are some of the things I have been meaning to blog about though...
Last week was my girl's third reading fair. Second grade reading fair brought her a second place ribbon.
She was super excited, and I think her project is her cutest one yet. LOVE her love for reading and her desire to work hard.
Know what else I love?
Old friends, specifically visiting with my oldest friend and her newest addition.
Heather and I had the best time catching up while her little miracles played under foot. I so wish we lived closer and could visit more often; there is just something so comfortable about being with someone who has known since before you could hold a pencil.
And last but not least, this little one.... oh, I could just squeeze her.
I seriously think this shirt was made with her in mind. Candy is the end-all be-all for Hollyn.
In other news, please keep sending up prayers for my grandmother, as she still has a very long way to go.
And THIS week I'll be back on the road with Noonday.
This time I'm headed to the great state of Alabama to catch up with a high school friend I haven't seen in forever and to visit with the girl who knows me better than any other, the infamous Kara Leigh.
So excited to giggle 'til I cry and stay up way past my bedtime.
I promise to be back later this week with a big post about Malawi.
Until then, happy happy happy to you and you and you.
