This morning we got our music practice out of the way, read some books, ate lunch, and had some quiet time before heading to the ice skating rink to meet up with the Marshalls.
I was horrified to learn that this morning Derek had ripped his pectoral muscle off in CrossFit. Chelsea has such an amazing attitude, but we are praying for him. I can’t even imagine what that would feel like!
After an hour and a half of skating, we returned home to dinner. I was so proud of cooking it in the morning so that we could just go ahead and eat. Getting that done early meant that we had time to play a bird memory game afterward.
I also took inventory of Mary’s life with Mary. I did this with Lydia a week or so ago and it felt so great. I asked Lydia about everyone and every activity going on in her life, and she was extremely enthusiastic about everything. We concluded that her life is fun (except for harp practice and homework). Mary came to the same conclusion and cheered every time I named one of her activities or a loved one in her life. The only thing she doesn’t like is piano practice because “you’re too serious during piano practice, Mom.” I love these inventories because we all get to see how many amazing aspects of life we enjoy. That’s easy to forget because of all the tantrums that take place around here…:) 🙂 🙂
