Then Dave and I bought a few groceries and wandered around Chapters for a bit. It was a very relaxing evening.
On Sunday Dave played guitar at the Sunday School assembly (About sixty kids from aged 2 to Grade 6 meet together to sing songs, collect offering and hear the Bible Story before going to their classrooms for a response time.), I told the Bible Story, and then after church I stayed for a youth-mentor lunch. I finally got home around 2:30 and Rachel woke up around 4. We then spent about an hour outside getting things ready for winter. Our picnic table and BBQ are put away, the lawn has been mowed, we weeded some raised beds and generally cleaned up the yard. It was a great day to be outside and I really enjoyed the relaxed family hanging out time.
I don't usually post the same pictures here as I do on Instagram but I'm making an exception for these two. Rachel, pushing her baby in the stroller while in her church clothes and rain boots, was making me laugh. And Sam was having a good time picking berries off the hedge and throwing them into the empty sandbox. Like I said, it was just some good outside time.
I finished up the weekend with book club (yes, I was out four nights in a row over the kids' bedtime) and then I stayed up way too late reading the book for our next meeting. Which isn't until the end of October. But I really got into the book. If it continues to be good I will do a review of it.
