This is going to get old, but wow, last week was crazy! It just keeps happening. Some how, the older Jack gets, the more we’re involved in, the busier we get. And fall makes it that much worse! Fall is my very favorite season — and yesterday felt like fall! It was cool. It was 59 degrees when we got dressed for church. Jack wore a light sweater with elbow patches — ahhh!! I wore boots and light sweater. LOVELY. I love fall! All of that to say, we have been running around like crazy it feels like. Last week was a blur, but we are good and had many good things happen.
Friday evening Jack and Tommy spent some time together — it was sweet! Tommy has started taking Jack golfing. Jack loves it! It’s fun for them to spend time together, and I think Tommy has been waiting for this for awhile. Saturday morning we woke up early to head downtown for a 5K. It was the Sprint for the Prints 5K for Precious Prints. A really great cause — they help provide comfort to families like ours who lose a child, so we were happy to support them. It definitely is something that we would have loved to have for Gabriel. Our friends the Parrishes, who we met last year after they lost their baby, did a video for Precious Prints [I shared on my facebook page a couple of weeks ago] and are a family who has a charm of their daughter’s thumbprint. Jack rode in his stroller and then ran through the finish line with us. He loved the 5K! It’s right up his alley. Afterwards, he checked out the food and had a bag of Cheetos, an orange, 2 donuts, and a water bottle. Gotta refuel.
Then we headed home to set up for Tommy’s sister and brother in law’s going away party that we hosted. They move to Nebraska today, so we had a fun time Saturday afternoon celebrating them with all their people. Then we went to mom and dad’s for burgers and came home, put Jack to bed and watched the Tennessee game. It was a full day! And so fun. We will really miss Molly and Drew but are so happy for them and this big move in their lives.
So we had a great weekend, lots of fun celebrating and hanging out, and resting and playing on Sunday. A great weekend! Now on to a new week. Today I’m over at the Knoxville Moms Blog sharing one of my very favorite list posts to date — 25 non-toy gifts for kids. I’m ALL about this. Head on over there and check it out!
Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Did it feel like fall where you are??
