Welcome to my weekly Slow Day post, inspired by Monica from The Homespun Heart. My Word for 2018 is Slow and, in the spirit of that word, I’m taking one day each week (Wednesday) off — I’ll be unplugged and offline and plan to move at a slower pace, take time to do things that refresh me, and just really focus on being present and savoring the moment.
Each Saturday, I’ll be sharing a photographic peek into my Slow Day — and I’ll let the pictures almost 100% speak for themselves, instead of giving many explanations. Enjoy a little peek into our lives!
Homemade Pancakes in the car on the way to school… because some mornings, you just do the best you can do, eh? 🙂
I was supposed to teach on parenting at Discipleship Group this morning but because of Jesse being in Peru and then coming back super sick and me spending most of afternoon and evening before at Urgent Care with him, I didn’t have a chance to work much on my talk until Wednesday morning.
I jotted down some of my notes for my talk in the parking lot after dropping Kaitlynn and Silas off at school and while waiting to take Kathrynne to school (she had a later start than usual because they were going on a field trip).
I had some notes for the talk already on my computer, so I used my notebook for the first part of the talk and my computer for my second part of the talk. I had planned to print my notes, but when I went home to quickly finish doing my hair and makeup and make sure Jesse had everything he needed (since he was still sick), I couldn’t get the printer to work.
So I literally just used my computer and notebook when I gave the talk. Yet again, sometimes you just do what you have to do!
I shared some from my talk here and here. And here’s the book (Mom Set Free) I highly recommended that people read.
I met a friend for a quick lunch after Discipleship Group and then went home to check on Jesse. He was doing a lot better (thank you, Jesus, for medicine!) and I convinced him to ride in the car to school pick-ups.
I took his picture (mostly because I was so excited he was up and feeling better!) and he was pretending he didn’t want me to take his photo so he covered up his face with his phone. 😉
After school pick-ups, I dropped the girls off and then took Silas to his flag football practice. It was cold outside, so I stayed in the car and read my Bible and answered texts.
After football, I took Kathrynne to youth group at church and met a friend for tea until it was time to pick Kathrynne up. And I can’t even remember if I did anything else or went straight to bed.
I guess you could say I spent most of my Slow Day in the car! 😉
