A Day With Our Story Time Friends

Hello, everyone!  I hope you are all doing well.  Is everyone ready for the weekend?!

We have a busy, busy few days ahead of us, but I am really looking forward to them.  Tomorrow we are taking a road trip to Marbles Kids’ Museum in Raleigh, then Saturday we have a birthday party and a church pool party to attend, and then on Sunday we have our normal Sunday stuff.

Time is passing so quickly, but I am really looking forward to fall.  I am trying to speed it up a bit and invited our friends from story time over for a weenie roast after story time, but it was too hot to build a fire, so we ended up just cooking hotdogs on the stove! Maybe in a few weeks we can try again…

We had a great time anyway.  I am so thankful for the friends I have made at the library.  I began going to story time when Charlie was about 18 months old and I was about 7 months pregnant with Maddie.  I didn’t have many friends who had young children, and I definitely didn’t have any stay-at-home mom friends, so I started going to story time more for myself than for Charlie, and it has been such a blessing to me.

The women at story time are quite a mix!  We are different religions and races, we educate our children differently, we all have different backgrounds, and we are all from different places, but we are all moms of small kids and that is all that matters.  We just need each other!

Here are some pics of the kids playing this afternoon:

It is so great seeing all of the kids growing up together, and seeing all of us moms growing up together, too! Love those ladies!

 

Two people can accomplish more than twice as much as one; they get a better return for their labor. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But people who are alone when they fall are in real trouble.    Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

    It is so amazing how having one thing in common (being a mom) can outweight all of the differences. I can’t wait to take the kids to Marbles tomorrow. It is going to be so much fun!!!
