{my moment}

A moment captured from the week that captured my heart. 
A Friday ritual inspired by Soulemama.



Last night, I sat under this gorgeous magnolia tree at Summer's Fifth Night in Utica Square. As I sipped my wine, listened to Red Dirt music and enjoyed my friends, I couldn't help but think that the tree our sweet Corrinne gave me for Mother's Day will one day grow into a beauty like that.

Picnic with Grampa Roger. He brought koozies, which are incredibly cool, as well as birch beer and root beer! As always, he had lots of stories to tell too!

Conversations in the Car Vol. 15

Driving home after VBS...

Me: So, did you guys have fun at VBS?

Corrinne: Yeah.

Aidan: Yes!

Alec: Uh-huh.

Me: Did you sing songs?

Aidan: Yeah, we did the one that goes, "Hallelu, hal-you...wait...Hallelu, hallelu, hal, hal, halla...wait...Hallelu, hal, hal, hal-you, hal-you, hal, hal...wait..."

Me: I think I know how that one goes, honey...

Corrinne: (To the others) Did you guys sing that one about all the men, but they were books of the Bible?"

Aidan: Oh yeah! It went like, "Matthew, Mark, John...wait...Matthew, Mark, Luke and...Matthew...wait..."

Me: It's okay honey, I don't even always remember all the books of the Bible.

Aidan: Yeah, but this is a song, Mom.

Me: Yes, I know it's a song, but...(searching for a way out here) Alec, did you have fun?

Alec: Yeah, I told you I did! We played Sharks and Minnows in the gym!

Me: Oh yeah, how do you play that?

Alec: Well, we've played it at the pool, Mom. It's pretty much like that.

Me: Well, I know how it goes in water, I just wanted to hear you talk about your morning and wondered if it was different on land. Did you talk about God, or did the teachers teach you anything about God?

Alec: No.

Me: ((pause)) Oh. Well...did they say anything about Jesus?

Alec: Oh yeah!

Me: And...what did they say about Jesus?

Alec: That he went on a road with all these people, these guys, and they beat him up and they dipped in his bucket. ((pause)) And that's sad.

Me: ((pause)) They... dipped in his bucket?

Alec: (With a pretty sincere frown on his face) Yeah, I didn't know Jesus got bucket dipped!

Me: ((pause)) I didn't know he got bucket dipped either, honey.

Alec: Yeah, that's sad. That's so sad he got bucket dipped.

Me: ...yeah...

You have no idea how hard it is to get Carter to smile in pictures. This smile is a genuine smile from him, and yes I cried when I took it. But no one saw, promise.
