We spent the weekend in town and really didn’t do anything too exciting but these are the weekends that I love. Tyler was actually home more so it was nice spending time with our little family of three – soon to be four! Saturday afternoon, Tyler worked in the yard while Keeler and I watched a video that we picked up at the library, Sesame Street - Three Bears and a New Baby.
It was a cute little video about what happens when Mama, Papa, and Baby Bear are expecting a new cub in the family… Baby Bear is having a "wee" bit of trouble adjusting to the new arrival. But he is able to become an expert big brother, and even has fun teaching his baby sister. I was happy to find a few more books and another video that will help Keeler understand was is about to happen when we bring Kallahan home. After the video we took a nice nap. When we woke, we all played Playdoh®, picked up take out for dinner and when Keeler went down some couple friends came over and we watched Hall Pass. We all enjoyed it – but the guys really did!
On Sunday, we had a nice breakfast and headed to church. It was a nice service but I experienced some more anxiety about Keeler's well-being. Keeler has started having issues about leaving us and/or his granny. He talked all before church about seeing “his friends” but when Tyler tried to drop him off at the nursery he refused. The teacher was so sweet and informed Keeler that they were going to the park but he still started to cry and wanted to stay with Tyler. He has not done well with the entire nursery idea, which will be similar to preschool that he starts in the fall. I know that it will be an adjustment and is only two mornings a week but I don’t want my little cowboy to ever feel uncomfortable. Any suggestions on how to prepare him for school would be greatly appreciated.
On a side note, we had a very sweet moment in church. As most of you know, when we talk about heaven and God with Keeler it always makes its way back that his dog “Sam” is now in heaven with God and Jesus. Well, on the projector screen at church there was a large picture of Jesus. Keeler looked up at the picture and very sweetly asked, “where’s Sam?” At first we were confused but then Tyler and I had to giggle. We whispered that he just wasn’t in that picture with Jesus. He is so sweet. There were several times this weekend I kept thinking, I wish that I could freeze time, I love this stage.
Sunday evening, we had dinner at the Turners and went swimming. Keeler played like he was a waiter of a restaurant and attempted to make us spaghetti. He kept running out of ingredients so I don't think we ever got any food. Who's kitchen does this sounds like? I hate that the summer is coming to an end so quickly.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7)
