What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Our family date was a total success. Minus the fact that Chinese didn't seem to be on Bunkin's appetite list. It was super fun to see Matt in the middle of a work day and enjoy lunch with him. Lunch hours are not something we are used to. Lunch times up until this point consisted of shoving one's sandwich in one's face while walking to the next cow...and if the cow you were walking past happened to do her business while you were walking past...and if her business splashed up on you- well, then, so be it.

Yeah, I know. Gross.

But all the more reason to celebrate lunchtime now.

Manure-nowhere in sight.

Sitting- not on the move.

An hour- AN HOUR?!?!? What can you possibly do for an HOUR?!?!?

Brown eyes, six of 'em, staring back at me.

Not to mention, this day, something OTHER than a sandwich. Even if it was, on this particular day, Chinese.

PS. We also went to the Discovery Center, had a blast. (Didn't bring my camera out with the exception of taking these two photos of mountain rope climbers. Very proficient, they were.)

The park, a bank, the grocery store, another bank, a craft store, Target, and my sister's house.

From 7:30- 5:30.

And I was exhausted by the end of the day.

When is school going to start so life can slow down ?!?!?

I'm glad you had a nice lunch with your hubby- believe me, I cherish those lunch/dinner dates myself :)

I enjoyed visiting with you that day too! I am so glad to have you back here again :)

Hi Rebecca,
Thanks so much for 'checking in' with me! LOL You're on my Bloglines too, so even though I don't comment often either...I try to keep up! LOL And even when I can't visit, the girls keep up with what you're doing and share!
It sounds as though you've all been extremely busy!
May the Lord continue to bless you and yours...and lil' Bunkin too!
Now that we are back in a more regulated 'school mode', I hope to be back on a better visiting schedule!
Take care and thanks again for your sweet comment!

Believe it or not, I knew about your day at the Discovery Center before I read about it here. Scary, huh? ;o Actually, I just came here after visiting Elizabeth's blog. Me thinks the sisters and the cousins all had a wonderful, busy day!!!

It looks like the lunch date wtih Papa was a big hit with your munchkins, as well.

Love from the whole clan,

We just went to this for the first (and last, maybe, because Millie's card just expired) on Sunday! Millie's card for the Discovery Center down here is also good for the one there, but we hadn't gone there until Sunday.

You should check out the Storybook Garden outside of the one in Binghamton. It's SO COOL, and it's free, too, which is pretty cool by itself.
