COUSIN WEEKEND.

We had so much fun this weekend with a 2-night cousin sleepover! We jammed packed it full of activities, which not only wore the kids out, but also wore us out. After we put the kids to bed last night Sten and I were dead-- we sat on the couch and didn't move until our early bedtime.

We did lots of playing, lots of arts and crafts, lots of running around, swimming, barbies, legos, and luckily, since it was nice on Friday we got to hit up downtown and show our cousins Knokes!



I love it when these 4 get to spend time together. Every moment is precious with them, even when it is loud and crazy. What could be better than a weekend spent with our besties?!

LAUNCH review.

PHEW! I cannot believe that the planning, preparation, and prayer that has happened over the last 6 months came and went in a single hour. Sten and I were talking about this very statement Saturday before everything kicked off. The amount of time spent on that 1 hour Sunday morning was ALL worth it. I was downstairs with the babies, so I cannot speak from a visual standpoint, but I know it rocked, from the feedback we received and the general feel of the whole morning, I KNOW GOD ANSWERED OUR PRAYERS.
I went on my "prayer run" this morning (which means I run to the YMCA camp and go around the loop praying) and I was weepy thinking about the way God answered our prayers. In so many ways. There were faces I didn't know, kids that were entrusted to our care, and people that were genuinely interested in our next service. I prayed that as we grow wider, we'd grow deeper as well. That God's spirit would be more and more alive within our team and it would be magnetic.

yesterday.

This has been a hard season for me, sometimes you can't explain why you're sad, but it just hits you like a ton of bricks. I know I am not alone in this feeling, but it is quite foreign to me. I have spent the last week trying to find the joy in my every day. In my family, in my home, in the fall colors, but some days I come up short. I have many friends who I love so dearly, and yesterday one of them came through for me in a big way. She texted me at 8 and said she'd be over to play with the kids at 9, so I should be ready to get out of the house to have some alone time and grab a coffee and just sit. It was such a gift. Such an amazing act of selflessness. She had listened when I said I wasn't doing so hot and this act of love resonated so deeply in me. It makes me tear up, just writing the words.
Sten and I often talk about all the ways God has blessed us. We have more than we need, and so much love within our home, that we hope it spills over into all the people w…

oh to be 4.

I often find myself trying to get into these 2 little brains... I was a quirky kid growing up, with a huge imagination and I can't help but think these 2 are the same as me. Always ready to play the next thing and giggle their way through it. When does your brain stop doing this? I will be so sad the first time Olive comes over and they don't dive into the costume box within the first 20 seconds.

Childhood is so magical to me- and so fleeting.
Please stay little for a long time, you 2.
