Saturday Family Time

What a beautiful Saturday morning! Warm weather, gentle breeze, blue skies! We got up early and went to Tandem Creperie in downtown Travelers Rest to meet up with my cousin Anna from Boston and a friend Allison, along with the babies. So good to catch up! And the coffee and crepes are always a delicious start to the day!

Then we walked around various little shops in TR till Bryan had to go to work. Kyle fell asleep in the stroller on our walk, so I decided to keep walking the Swamp Rabbit Trail. He woke up about an hour later and this was my view: cute little fingers and toes, toddler trail mix (cheerios, goldfish, and puffs), and a sippy cup of milk and strawberry-banana smoothie–held on by a “SippyPal” strap (amazing invention!).

Came home, ate a little lunch, read “The Little Blue Engine That Could” and played with trains, dinosaurs and soccer balls (#boymom) till Kyle went down for his nap. Thankfully, he’s napping well today, so I got a chance to sweep and straighten up the house…and blog a little. peanuts-movie-sweeps_pbNext up is dinner with Anna and my sister’s family–grilled cheese sandwiches and the Pioneer Woman’s “Best Ever Tomato Soup” (I can’t stop making this soup!). And I picked up a copy of “The Peanuts Movie” to watch with the kids (throwback to Kyle’s bday party a few weeks ago).

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

History, Politics, and the Church: Faith, Hope, and Freedom

This 10 minute video clip is worth watching. It starts with the above trailer and continues with an interview with Kirk Cameron (“Monumental” filmmaker) and Marshall Foster (President, World History Institute) by Glenn Beck.

Freedom starts with faith in Christ, serving one another, teaching our children truth at home, and going out and doing right over the long haul.

If you’re in the Greenville, SC, area, the movie Monumental, tonight’s the last night to catch it at the Hollywood 20 Theatre on Woodruff Road. We went Tuesday night and it was a very well done documentary. I loved it! For more information, and to see if it will be playing in a theater near you, check out www.monumentalmovie.com.
