Sunday night stuff

After a week of coming and going, it was nice to be a little less busy this weekend. The week was full of things; worship team rehearsal for CR on Monday night, Joel's first drum lesson Tuesday evening, plus Halle's first night of AWANA this year, leadership team meeting for CR on Wednesday night, small group meeting Thursday night, and then the CR anniversary celebration Friday night. Insert big tired sigh here. 

Just a few comments about all that stuff up there: Joel loved his drum lesson. By the end of the lesson, he was playing the bass, hi-hat, and snare together and accompanying his teacher's guitar playing on the chorus of "Blessed Be the Name of the Lord." His drum set arrived on Thursday and I was lucky enough to know another homeschooler whose husband plays drums in the AF Band here and was more than happy to help us get them set up.

Friday night's CR was awesome. We moved the meeting from our small ministry center into our main worship auditorium. What a difference in the music between the two places! I hated for the worship to end. 

After taking care of business around here yesterday (laundry), the kids and I went to see Eagle Eye. It was pretty good.  Made me think of the old Sandra Bullock flick, The Net.  Then this afternoon, I went to see Fireproof.  GREAT movie! I highly recommend it.

This week looks to be a little less packed, although Tuesday night is full: Joel's drum lesson from 6-6:30, Halle's AWANA from 6:30-8:30, and I have CR worship rehearsal at 6:30 as well. Thankfully there are 2 parents available, so I will be able to drop Halle off on my way to rehearsal while Brian goes to lessons with Joel. Ai-yai-yai.

Have you ever said what CR is? I know it's Celebrate Recovery, but I'm not sure what that ministry is. Would love to know more about it.

I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your movies. I saw Shia LaBeouf who said Spielberg was going for audiences to leave turning off their cell phones out of fear in much the same way we were afraid to go into the water after "Jaws." Sounds interesting. Glad Joel is liking his jam sessions!

Fireproof was great. I think it should be seen by everyone at all stages of life.
glad to hear your CR groups are going so well.
Have a great week.

We have CR where I worship, too. I am looking forward to seeing Fireproof.

I'd like just one slow, lazy weekend in the hammock. I'd probably get bored and find something to do but it would be nice to think about!

I don't care how boring you think your life is - it's always a good read. Unless you're busy - then I give you a pass. Did you read about the Disney cruises for 2010? Does that mess up our plans?

Oh, and where did you post that iTunes game where you set the playlist to shuffle and answered questions the way the songs were landed on?
