So here it is, Thursday already, and I am just finishing telling you about our weekend. On the bright side, at least I'm finishing it up before the coming weekend starts.
Sunday started with me worship leading at church. It was a crazy service to put together because it involved a bunch of musicians (who I didn't have to organize, thankfully!) and I wanted to get different ages involved. Sam and his two friends lit the Advent candles and some of the teens I am close to read scripture. It was nice to feel a little more connected to the worship service as Sam and Rachel actually paid more attention than normal.
Then we came home and got ready to celebrate Chanukah with Dave's family.
After supper, we headed to our city square for the lighting of the region's biggest menorah. It was nice to experience that with Dave's family.
Please tell me things will slow down in January, even if it's a lie. Or at least let me hold on to the illusion just a little longer :)
Sam did have his appointment yesterday and it turns out he does need some minor surgery in the spring. It will be day surgery and then he will be off school for a week recovering. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.
