The highlight of our week was definitely a visit from Aunt Heather and Baby Wren. It's always a delight to see them - to my children Baby Wren is a celebrity! I'm thankful that it will only be a few weeks before they come back for another visit.
The week ended with Jeremy out of town for a conference. It's always hard when he's away from town - we miss him like crazy! This has been our best mommy-kids weekend so far though. Friday we had a movie night/sleepover in the living room. We stuffed ourselves full of sugar and watched Star Wars Episode IV. None of my high-school or college beaus could convince it was worth viewing but for Big Buddy I will become a full-on-nerd. I have already learned more than I dreamed possible about construction vehicles and dinosaurs so why not "the force" too. After the movie we all cuddled up and slept on the living room floor. We have never been co-sleepers (I get a bit too cranky when I'm sleep deprived for that) so I find nights like this extra sweet.
Then this morning we had a couple friends (who's husbands/daddies were also busy with work) over for brunch. Since everyone brought something to share it made meal prep a breeze. And enjoying coffee and conversation while the kids were busy playing made what could of been a long morning fly by.
Jeremy comes home early tomorrow afternoon - and I'm pumped! Maca has offered to watch the kids while I pick him up from that airport so I'm looking forward to a quiet car ride and maybe a quick lunch date. It will be a treat to get a bit of his undivided attention before the kids tackle him with questions and hugs.

This is a weekly series inspired in part by Bob Bennet's song Small Graces.
"these are the small graces, the little moments when the miracles come...
they are a reminder to the heart there is more to life than meets the eye...
He is in the small graces....
small graces pointing me to the larger one...
little glimpses of the kingdom come..."
I hope your week has been filled with lots of "small graces" too!
