Our weekend welcomed a new soccer player to the family. Ella has long awaited this day. As I was sipping my coffee, out of the quiet came a simple song, ” Yay, yay, yay! soccer day is finally here.” Sophie needed handmade pom-poms to bring to the game and was the sweetest cheerleader I have ever seen.
There were Saturday chores without complaint, and a snugly nap with Sophie. There was dinner with friends. Talk of hopes prayerfully on the horizon. Followed up with hair styling advice. Friends, this is the making of a good evening; should anyone be wanting a formula.
Sunday was peaceful and what I wished every Sunday could be. Everyone settled and happy to play. A little reading. Chilly enough to need a blanket. A little Chai tea. A little football. A nap, this time with Ella. Chicken and dumplings for dinner – and one child declaring I NEED to make this again because it’s a favorite.
