What I Enjoyed this Week: A Weekend Away at the Summit

Going with a friend is so much better than going alone.

Last weekend, I went to the Homeschool Moms' Winter Summit for the fourth year and had a wonderful time.  Every year I learn something new and come home with things to work on in order to become a better wife and mother.  I also come home refreshed and ready to tackle the rest of the school year.  My sweet husband came home early from work on Friday so that he could take care of our children while I was gone.

Here are a few other things that I enjoyed this week:
  • how well my husband did with the children.  He even took them to the Lego store in Houston for Rachel's birthday and the next day to the Houston zoo.  They had a great time while I was gone.  Hmmm.  Maybe I should go out of town more often.  ;)
  • being able to breathe through my nose.  When you're all stopped up, you realize how much you take such a simple thing for granted.
  • Baskin Robbin's ice cream.  Remember scoops are only $1.50 on the 31st!  We take advantage of this deal every time it's available.
  • reminders of things I learned last year at the Summit like not putting my loved ones in the cage of expectations.
  • the warmer weather.  It certainly hasn't been hot, but it has been freezing, either, so I'll take it!
  • The Liturgy of the Ordinary by Tish Harrison.  What a wonderful book about how we can find the sacred in the ordinary and vice versa.  
  • being home.  As much as I enjoyed my weekend away, I'm so glad to be home!
We have another quiet weekend planned which I really appreciate because I know they're going to get very busy once soccer starts.  

What did you enjoy this week?  What do you have planned for the weekend?
