we went away for a quick little overnight. odd to me how a brief trip can throw us off this much. time will tell how affected elijah's week will be. praying for a smooth return to routine. he did absolutely marvelous on the mini vacation! so proud of him, and so strengthened to try again very soon.
here's a few recent phone pics to catch up a little.
i got to babysit my nieces last weekend. hazel was so excited about it.
seriously, i don't know funnier girls than my sister's hazel and ivy. for real.
lots of rain. it's beginning to feel endless. but i love the way it makes the streets look at night.
rainy days mean inside things like toy aisle browsing. elijah is a professional target shopper, i think.
when the rain does take a break, it's like the sky is on fire.
our little trip was down the road to fargo. the hotel had a pool and elijah was completely overwhelmed with excitement. it was exhausting for all, but some super good laughs happened and sweet memories were made. worth it.
thank the lord peter pan was on the tv. this is what it looks lke to watch a movie with elijah. so relaxing.
long day of swimming and playing around town means the gift of an early bedtime. hallelujah.
we visited the little zoo. elijah only tried to jump into an exhibit once, so that was a plus. and the petting zoo was a big hit. elijah loves horses!!
fake horses were less appealing. elijah preferred the bench on the carousel. and his favorite part of the ride was studying the movement of how the carousel was working. such a little engineer!
ok, y'all. i met an instagram friend while we were in fargo!! dear penny and her super cute family are so genuine and kind. we loved meeting them, having lunch together and visiting their church! the service was a blessing, and they even made a place for elijah to enjoy kid's church with a special helper. it was all so wonderful and really meant so much to worship and know that elijah was cared for and understood. praise jesus!
