On Friday after school, the kids and I baked cookies. We were having guests over the next day and I wanted cookies for dessert. We make Jell-O cookies (recipe here) and even though the recipe says it was only posted in May 2019, the blogger must have changed their post. We've been making these for quite a few years now. We make red (raspberry) and green (lime) for Christmas and yellow (lemon) and blue (blue raspberry) for Channukah.
Then I came home, crawled into bed, read for a bit, and was asleep before 10. Yikes.
After church we drove through the countryside to Dave's parents'. We had lunch with them and then Dave's dad gave Rachel, Sam, and I a Hebrew lesson. We are all trying to learn Hebrew this year. It's HARD. We know thirteen letters and eleven vowel sounds so the words we're able to make (and read) are getting long and tricky. Dave's mom had some old books and schoolwork of Dave's to pass on so we also looked through that.
We had fish tacos for supper and lit the second candle on our Advent wreath.
After supper, we found out some news which we had been waiting for about our summer. It is news that mostly effects Sam and we spent the rest of the evening processing the news we received. I will talk about it more on the blog at some point, but I'm just not ready yet. However, I wanted to be honest and say that I stopped taking pictures at this point because it's hard to take pictures of lots of conversations :)
I will also be honest and say that this weekend, although filled with lots of fun, was hard. I am tired and that is not a great way to be heading into this week. I would have liked to have more time at home, and more energy, to get things done. But some weekends are like that and deserve to be documented as truthfully as the really fun and exciting weekends, right?
I am excited about one particular thing this week and I think I will try and blog about it more on Thursday, when I have a bit more information to share with you all. I will give you a hint though: I have been unemployed (not by choice) since the end of August, and today and tomorrow I am doing training and orientation for MY NEW JOB!!! Whoo hooo!!! I really can't wait to share more with you once I have a better sense of a few things :)
