on sunday, brady and charlotte went with us to pierce's soccer game. pierce was so excited for brady to be there. and brady seemed pretty excited too. brady did so well just watching the game - with only a few times of asking if it was his turn to "help pierce play soccer." before and after the game and at halftime, the boys got to play a little one-on-one soccer together.
cheering the choo choo's on together.
since it was super hot at the game, i told the boys that they could cool off in the sprinklers when we got home. just a little peek into our summer, i am sure...
yesterday while teaching science, i had a moment. one of those moments where you are stopped in your tracks. and you can't forget it.
i was teaching my students about the phases of the moon and we were watching an animation of the earth rotating and the moon revolving around the spinning earth. and it hit me - we are living on a sphere that is rotating on an axis. as it rotates around a burning ball, the sun. while a moon revolves around it. what?!?!? how is that even possible???
God. it is all possible because of the awesome, amazing God we serve. he knows what he is doing and he always has. i continued my science lesson without stopping, but i can't get that silly little picture out of my head. and i think God put it there for a reason. i needed to see it. i needed to be reminded that HE is in control.
as i pray through some big decisions for our family, he is in control. as i pray for dear friends who are in the midst of an adventure like none other , he is in control. as i pray for friends who are in the midst of a wait, he is in control. my God is in control. and he knows what is best and he knows how each story will finish. what comfort. what peace.
and how special that the same God that makes the earth spin around on a axis (while spinning around the sun), cares about me. and cares so much about me that he gave me these 2 precious little ones to share each day with.
last weekend, pierce and i headed up to bluebonnet to their spring carnival.
we met kristen and reid therefor a little play time. (and to show our support for the pta) pierce was slightly overwhelmed with everyone knowing who he was and yet he not knowing them. needless to say, his favorite part was the ice cream and the playground.
