When we got home, that's when the busy part started. Our church held a Back to School Block Party for kids in the area. Inflatables, face-painting, food, stilt-walkers. You could call it four hours of crazy. :) I was at the refreshments station for most of the party, except for when I was taking photos. (Last year I did face-painting, but decided being that close to little kid germs was not the best idea for me in my "delicate condition"...lol). Mike, Forrest, and Ashley were there as well. I thought I was going to dream in lemonade that night.
After the block party, we went to Leono's and I had the most amazing mini pizza I've ever had. And I've had many Leono's mini pizzas. The perfect amount of cheese, the crust was made just right...it didn't hurt that I was super hungry after the block party, either.
Today our Sunday School class had a baby shower for Kristin. She's having a little girl on Friday!
Side note: I picked up a plain pink bag from Target yesterday. No intention of coordinating anything. I woke up extra tired this morning, with what I thought was very little creative energy. I realized that I did not have a card to go with Kristin's gift...I pulled out one of my standby yellow-with-white-dots note cards from the Michael's and happened upon a matching label. I then realized that I had matching yellow tissue paper (good thing I'm a tissue paper junkie!) and pink MLS letter stickers that matched the bag. The creativity is coming back...slowly, but it's starting to show itself. Hooray!
Tonight, it was our Sunday School class' turn to served dinner at the church park. The biggest job was keeping the flies away. They were beyond ridiculous tonight! My arms are tired from all the shooing. But we got everything set up, served, and cleaned up, and that in itself is a lot!
As I pulled into the driveway this evening, I noticed a nearly full moon. Prayers for teachers this week are welcome. :)
