It's late Saturday night, and I'm waiting for Faith to come home from a friend's house. Joy and Grace have been asleep for a while, and so has Paul. The friend that Hope has over tonight is sleeping on the couch, and Hope is waiting for all to be quiet to try to sleep. It's nights like this that not having to be at church as early comes in handy!
After hearing so many good things, we went to see Secretariat today. And we were not disappointed. It really is a great movie! I knew Paul would like it, and I was confident that Faith and Hope would enjoy it. But I wasn't sure if it would be able to keep Joy and Grace's attention. I needn't have worried; they LOVED it! We don't see many movies as a family. With four kids, that would be too expensive, but this movie was so worth it! And I really enjoyed seeing a movie the whole family really enjoyed and that was so inspiring.
This evening we were pleasantly surprised by a group of young singles from our church displayed a row of jack-o-lanterns that spelled "Go Jesus!" in our front yard. Today is Paul's spiritual birthday: twenty-one years ago he began his relationship with Jesus. To mark that occasion, these great people decided to gift us with one of Paul's catch-phrases in such a fun package. It was so much fun! (Except for the mosquitoes; those were no fun at all!) I'm so glad our friends love us so much!
And to top it all off, Baylor won!!!
