Today was tough. It was one of those down days, but I tried to keep it together for the kiddos.
We went to our amazing church and heard a beautiful (as always) sermon from pastor Jack. He spoke about Rawanda and the work he will be doing there over the next 3 weeks. What a tragedy. I can't beleive that we just stood by. It makes me very sad.
We will add them to our prayer book.
After church we usually go out for lunch and spend around $20. Instead we came home for some mac-n-cheese and leftover pizza. No big deal. It actually worked out better since Bennett went down for a nap shortly after lunch. Lauren needed new shoes so Mike took the girls to Target. Don't you love Target? Cute stuff at great prices and you don't have the "Wal-Mart" guilt.
Dinner: Meatloaf, dijon potatoes and green beans.
Old habit: Going shopping on the weekends as an outing. Spending money for entertainment.
New habit: Do things together as a family that doesn't involve spending money. Today we went on a bike ride through our neighborhood.
