I am officially confessing that Sundays are probably one of the hardest days of the week for me. Okay... there, I said it!!
#1 church is at 2:30.... YES 2:30 in the afternoon!! #2 For the past 4 1/2 years I have been doing Sundays by myself. Blake is gone early for meetings and gets home late (some Sundays after 8pm). I have had to sit by myself w/ the kiddies for a LONG time now... and these ages are rough, which is fine... but sitting still for one hour (with 1, 2 or 3 parents) is a joke! #3 Church happens to coincide with nap time so you can only imagine how #2 plays out each week w/ NO nap. Sometimes we just go sit in the car. In the end, we make the best of it. We love the Branch and wouldn't have things any other way
This past Sunday I had to give a talk (in Spanish of course) as well as my usual Sunday school class. I really needed to review/practice/study and we had about 45 mins. until we needed to leave. I pulled out my secret weapon (the movie robots) and let the boys watch it on my bed... a very special privilege. When I came in the room, ready to pack everyone up to head to church this is what I found (I thought they were being awfully quiet)!!! Can I tell you how bad I wanted to crawl in bed with them... sigh!!!
We did make it to church and I know this time in our life won't last forever. This is why despite the craziness, I want to remember the details and smile back on our Sunday Fundays.
