Count it All Joy - Exhausted But Joyful

Well, I forgot to write an entry last night. I was totally beat.

I volunteered to chaperone my 1st grader's field trip and it was a blast! My F was the happiest and excited because it's her fantasy land—the land of dinosaurs! She was mesmerized with all the gigantic, robotic dinosaurs that she saw at Pangaea. She never failed to raise her hand to answer a question from the tour guide who gave everybody fun facts about dinosaurs. She's a dinosaur fanatic and therefore knows a lot about dinosaurs! Mama beamed with pride as she answered questions (with funny hand gestures).

We had two other kids from her class and one was her best friend named Malcolm. He too loves dinosaurs like F. It's cute how they grabbed the same dinosaur plush at the gift shop without even talking to each other. They liked the same stuff!

Today was another great day. Both of the girls had their karate belt testing. They are now red belters! Yay! We're halfway to black belt! E is always on top of her karate class. F needs a little more focus and is really good at it when she does.

'Twas another busy afternoon. Ryan and I cleaned our front yard, moving the rocks to get rid of dead leaves piling underneath. We don't really work together a lot when it comes to this kind of activity. I am quite glad he went out and started raking. Our front yard looks cleaner and neat! And yes, we're both sore and very tired. Right now, I just want to jump on the bed and snore to my content.

I guess the girls are sleeping with me tonight on the big bed. They get to sleep with me once a week. Tonight is the night. I love it when the girls sleep with me. That feeling of having them wrapped in each of my arm feels so homey and relaxing. I normally wake up sore on both of my arms because of staying in the same position as I went to bed 😂

As I am typing this, I can still hear the girls talking. They're supposed to be asleep by now. Oh well.

"My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience." - James 1:2-5
