Weekend Care Package
Welcome to my weekly round up of links I love and artful inspiration. I hope what I share from others will usher you into the weekend with gentleness and loveliness.
Both sets of Grandparents were out of town during this spring break week, so Oliver and I made some strolls down the street to Grandmom's house to feed her dogs. After a text from a friend I also realized I was a month late in needing to enroll Oliver in pre-k for next fall. Friends are priceless!!!! So I scrounged around for birth certificates and vaccination reports and made my way up to the enrollment center. It felt a little monumental signing him up for the same school Jeff and I attended. Go Jenks Trojans- maroon & white, bold & bright! haha
Anyway, after a long week I am thankful Friday has arrived.
Love and Hope in Christ,
Links I Love
