Friday's original plan was to list all my Fall Etsy creations.
Then it changed to a shopping day trip, then back to Etsy.
Then in a "fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants" kinda moment, it switched to a field trip day
to celebrate the end of summer and the beginning of school...new beginnings.
We took the two hour trek to the Children's Museum of South Dakota...and it was soo
If there ever were a child's fantasy world of a shrunken adult world, minus bills and boring stuff...this was it!
A grocery store, factory, farm, play restaurant, post office, car body shop, art spaces, water experiments...you name it! I loved this place.
Sometimes you just need your peeps, and by peeps I mean your babies with no distraction.
I left my phone in the car and we played. It was a good for me, especially on a day where a needed a good distraction from life.
And for the record, can I just mention that I do not like crossroads. It's one way or another and it's unable to be certain whether either one is a mistake. When I'm at these places, I feel like I freeze there, unable to think...let alone make a good decision.
With this mumbo jumbo running through my head, my eyes gravitated to a quote written out on the museum wall....
"When in doubt, make a fool of yourself." wellllll, that's one way to look at it, I guess. I think that could really release me from a lot of stress.
While praying and playing, I came to the realization that there may very well NOT be a crystal clear answer to our crossroads. (I realize my vagueness is probably very annoying, but it's all I've got right now)
I realize that maybe life isn't a dot-to-dot connection of red and green lights, but a whole collection of red lights, green lights, and then some wonky streets that have no street signs at all.
|the weather station...i can totally see him doing this someday!|
This weekend is supposed to be for getting my classroom organized and ready for school on Tuesday. So far, it hasn't been happening. I tried to make all my copies for history and phonics, but my copy machine isn't working, which is pretty much my personal assistant for school....yikes! But today is a new day. I'm going to be quiet today...not let my mind go where it shouldn't.
I love that God prompts us to pray for one another. Several of you have emailed me to let you know I was on your heart...without knowing one tiny detail of what we've had on our plate this week...God is so cool that way. Thank you, girls.
And the Fall line?? It's coming...on Tuesday!!
Here's a sneak peak:
