One of my favorite ways to document our day-to-day life has been by linking up for ‘The Daily Dime’ once a month. The idea is simple: pick a day, take 10 photos, share them in a post. Easy enough right?
Well, I would partially say yes and partially say no. Taking 10 photos throughout the day can be a bit of a challenge. Which honestly is just another reason I love these posts. They encourage me to capture more of life’s everyday moments and share more of the “boring” stuff that doesn’t always make it to the blog.
This months photos were taken on Sunday August 13th, 2017.
Sunday meant an early morning for everyone. We needed to be at a church in Johnson, AR by 10:00, so we woke up early. Miraculously we had time to spare before leaving. Sister photos on the porch are always a good way to start our Sunday mornings.
Car selfie! I said we needed to leave by 8:30, we left by 8:25. That NEVER happens folks. Never, ever, ever! It made the planner in me oh so happy to actually be in the car when we needed to be.
We arrived at the church early and they had coffee and donuts there #glory!
Long story short we were there for a send off service. One of the pastors there (who we used to got to church with years ago) is starting a church plant in Joplin. We couldn’t possibly be more excited to get to be a part of that.
It was so cool to see two groups of people come together. There were 13 adults and 9 kids from the Joplin plant there and the AR church made us feel like family. They fed us well and were so supportive. It was an awesome day.
Photo with my girls as we left. The church was so picturesque. It even had a working bell.
When in Arkansas we always, ALWAYS make a stop at Dunkin. Coconut Cream Cold Brew, yes please!
In the car Emily was playing with her “Doob” collection. They all have names too. Doob, Sally, Rainbow Spot, Gus, Fruity, Shrink, Kara, Dum Dum, Princess Consuela and Rainbow Dude. Who is who… I’ll leave that up to your imagination.
We arrived back home around 3 and I did some prep for the next school week… I may or may not have eaten that donut too. I can’t wait to start Charoltte’s Web with the girls today. Neither of them have ever read the book, or seen the movie. I hope they love it.
The girls were acting a bit crazy, so we sent them outside for the crazy to continue away from anything breakable. Also note the grass. It is August, right?! The grass never looks like this in August. It has been so rainy lately.
The rest of the evening was dinner, and emails. Here is the first sneak peek at our ever so evolving and shrinking house. I am sure there will be more on that in a future house post, but if you have a keen eye for these things you might be able to pick out a few bits and pieces. It all needs redrawn and Lord knows it is going to change a bit. But for the most part, we’re good… I think 😆 .
So our weekend was a teensy bit more exciting than a normal, but it was definitely one worth documenting. A new church family and a new home being built. There is so much exciting change in the air.
