We had an especially busy week, with a field trip and extra church services for Holy Week.
I have to start with last Friday night, when Wayne and the younger two went to a local hockey game with some people from church. (Yes, our small beach town has a professional hockey team. I’m told my brother-in-law didn’t believe me and had to look it up.) I saw this picture on the church Facebook page and had to steal it.
On Sunday we traveled to Mobile to see the Rock and Worship Roadshow. It wasn’t as bad as I expected, and it was fun to do something different as a family.
Abby and I took to communicating via text, because it was so loud that we couldn’t hear each other, even by putting mouth next to ear. I was impressed with her good sense when she texted me, during a particularly
weird interesting act, “This is Christian music how?” We explained to her later that it’s less “Christian” and more just “safe.” Some people like that type of music, and that group is able to provide that style of music without inappropriate content. And really, that’s how I feel about the whole “worship industry.” It’s more about being “entertainment for the whole family” than it is about worship. Worship is about God. These acts were about being entertaining. And that’s fine. But it’s definitely not my scene.
We had a fairly normal school week. Ben learned how to write money amounts in a new way.
And that is the only school picture I took. 🙂
On Thursday, the homeschool band/strings had a community concert at a local amusement park. After the concert, we had lunch there and then the kids had a couple of hours to ride the rides. The skies were threatening rain all afternoon, and it finally did downpour, but all the kids had fun until then.
Ben got to drive a go-kart for the first time. He LOVED it. LOVED. And then it was the only thing he wanted to do, so he did it over and over.
The rest of the week flew by – I sang at church on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, and again today for Easter.
Happy Easter! He is risen!
