colbys at his mimis house till sunday!! its weird having just molly. both of them being gone is not weird, just quiet, and a nice change from time to time, although rarely does that happen just for the sake of them being gone. they're usually both gone so we can go to youth camp or some other church/youth function, so we're not here to enjoy the quietness. is that a word?
anyway, so colby left yesterday evening and will come back on sunday morning. allen is preaching in 'big church' so his mom and stepdad are driving back in to hear him, and they'll drop colby off at that time as well. kind of a two-fer, if you will.
molly and i were sitting out back after colby left yesterday. it was a beautiful evening, about 65 degrees i would guess, and i was reading a book while she took her babies down the slide. then she got a book and came and sat next to 'read'. whats funny is she grabbed 'A Charlotte Mason Companion' by Karen Andreola off a side table just inside the door (its a homeschooling book), and 'read' to me about dinosaurs. i dont know where that came from but she was going on and on about what they like to eat and their tongues and all sorts of other randomness. and to think she got it all from that charlotte mason book! :) it amazes me how much she has to say when colbys not around. not that she doesnt talk much, because her mouth is always going non-stop. its just that when hes here, she follows his lead for the most part. his ideas are her ideas. i dont get much from molly, because its all stuff that shes heard him say or seen him do and shes re-doing it her way. i get time with her 2 mornings during the week while colbys at mothers day out, but i take advantage of that time with one less kid to do my grocery shopping and go to the gym and run other various errands. we hardly ever just stay home on those mornings.
all that said, i'm looking forward to 'just sitting' with mojo today, and tomorrow, and the next day.......
we were supposed to go to the zoo today, but we've been a couple of times already this month and i just didnt feel like driving an hour and a half, so i backed out at the last minute. i think maybe the Lord prompted my heart on that so i can just enjoy my baby girl with out any activities or other stuff going on.
this will be fun!
have a blessed weekend!!
