Hey friends!!!

A few months ago I came came across this quote in a parenting magazine…

The best bit of wisdom I received from my mother was really quite simple: children need ordinary Tuesdays…..”

This quote made me think…Am I giving my children ordinary Tuesdays?? Or are days jammed full with “stuff to do”??

What does an ordinary Tuesday look like for us?? What are the everyday activities that form our simple little life?

Well, it’s not Tuesday today, but here’s a sneak peek into our Ordinary day today…

1. I spent the morning making a meal to deliver to my good friend Lindsey.

(Here is a pic of my sink when finished, I should have taken a picture of the meal ~ it looked much nicer than a sink full of dishes ~ sorry!)

2. I went and helped in Benj’s 3rd grade classroom. (Here’s Benj and his awesome teacher, Mrs. Pluymert!)

3. My dog Rocky and I drove out to Belmont, Michigan to deliver the meal. Of course, there happened to be a Starbucks on the way…. 🙂 And then Rocky was tired and needed a nap.

4. We had Tea Time…and then they were off!!!

5. Benj went with Grandpa Bultema to hockey.

6. Jake had football practice.

7. Amanda took over my office to play Webkinz.

8. Sarah had Bible study in her bedroom with her friends.

9. And last but not least, we’re having leftover Tuesday’s Tacos for dinner!!

So there’s a “sneak peek” into our ordinary day….although I must admit ~ I have a hard time thinking any day is “ordinary”. You know me…any ordinary day is an opportunity to celebrate our extraordinary God and the gift of life He’s given to us!!

What does an ordinary Wednesday look like for you?? How did you spend your day?? I hope it was Wonderful!! 🙂
