Sunday night, Mike and I went to the movies with Steve and Nicole. (Big thanks to one amazing Mom-Mom for babysitting!) We pretended to be teenagers…well, I guess we are too old for that…let’s say we pretended to be in our twenties. We took stupid grainy pics of ourselves on our phones. We ate popcorn and candy and tried to keep ourselves awake past nine.
It was fun. It was rest. It was needed.
When the night was over we left our twenties at the theatre and returned home to our eight kids. Monday was almost here. Jobs to work, kids to care for, and homes to be tended.
Life is busy. It is good. We are grateful.
