Oh What a Beautiful Morning

When I first started this blog, I tried to name all my posts after song lines or titles... But that didn't last long!

This morning, Andrew and I were up before the sun to get him ready for school. We sat at the kitchen table eating breakfast and chatting, and I pointed out to Andrew how quickly the sun was coming up over the horizon, casting beautiful pink clouds on a purplish sky. It was so beautiful, and so peaceful.

Later, since he and I were the only ones up still, I asked if he would rather say our family prayer or have me do it. He chose to, and thanked HF that he, Emma, and Ethan are all so smart.

Those two things combined with another eventless doctor visit have me in a great mood today!

I'm so glad all is well with Miss Sophie. Can't wait to see her! How early do you have to get up? Audrey gets awoken around 7:05 for school at 8. You're probably having nice fall-ish weather, too. I'm tired of these 7-month Texas summers. :(

Congrats on the uneventful doctor visit. :) Those are always nice.

That sunrise sounds beautiful, but I'm too lazy to get up with the sun. John is sweet enough to get up with the kids while I sleep in. I'll probably see a few sunrises once the baby gets here. :)

You do have smart kids. :)

I just tried to comment, but the server was lost or something :) so if there are two comments from me, that's why.

Congrats on the uneventful dr. visit. Those are always nice.

Your sunrise sounds beautiful. I haven't seen one of ours in a long time. John is kind enough to get up with the boys while I sleep in. Once the new baby gets here I'll probably see a few sunrises. :)

You do have smart kids. I love the things kids come up with to pray about. :)
