Afterward I took the boys back home and then headed onto a very lovely baby shower for my friend Valarie who now lives in SC but came up for the weekend to attend the shower from her church family here. The shower was at a fantastic restaurant called Morgan's Tavern and it was so great to see the glowing mother-to-be.
Sunday we got up as usual and got to church for Sunday school class, I teach 1st & 2nd graders and my husband takes care of the baby nursery during Sunday school hour. Then it was our turn to serve in extended session during church service and we had the 2 & 3 year olds to take care of. After church my husband took the family home and I went out for a very nice lunch with two girls in my Sunday school class who earned a reward for learning their books of the bible. I am so proud of them for working so hard and hope to be taking another small group in November for their reward. After our lunch and delivering the girls back to the respective homes, I managed to make it home with enough time for a small nap. THEN after the nap we were back in the car again to go out for a short birthday celebration for my oldest niece Cassandra before heading back to church for the 4th of our annual Awesome August Nights.
Monday and Tuesday were just typical run around days, house chores, and to the gym for a workout. Tuesday dawned bright and early with an appointment for Jon for his 2 year physical. My little man has grown so much in the past year and is now weighing 25 lb.s and standing tall at 35.5" My boys have always been long and lean (getting that from grandpa jeans) and Jon is no exception, but according to the doctor he had a rapid growth spurt over the past year he went from being in the 5% to 15% growth scale. WOW at this rate I am going to have two teenage boys in special made clothes for giants ;-)
