Girls Together

I haven't written much in the past two days, because an unexpected pleasure happened. My dear husband, Mark, and sweet son, Robert, went on a Fathers & Sons campout with the men of our church and that left my Sarah and I alone together. What a rare treat to just be girlies!

We had so much fun. We brought home take-in and watched a favorite show yesterday. Today, we slept in and then went shopping. We love to window shop, but this time we came away with a few cute things for Sarah's wardrobe (I am sure she will be modeling them for you). We went thrifting and made some wonderful finds. We ate lunch out and went to see a movie. We talked and talked and giggled and talked. What a marvelous opportunity.

We are both tired now and the boys are home (we missed them). But what a lovely time we had, holding hands and going from adventure to adventure.

I am a happy mother!

Oh Elizabeth. That sounds simply wonderful. How very special. Sarah will remember that time forever. I have not popped over to her blog yet but I sure hope she is modelling some of her 'finds'. Take care Elizabeth...God Bless

I always looked forward to the Father-Son campouts for the very same reason- I got to spend uninterrupted time with my daughter. Sounds like you and Sarah had a lovely time together.
