Â As Â most of you know, I spent last week in Texas. Â We stayed with my family for Easter and the first part of the week. Â It was such wonderful trip!! Â It had been over 2 years since my girls had been down to visit, so it was nice for them to see my grandparents.
Â We got in on Friday afternoon and all my brothers and their families were there too. Â My middle brother, Abel, works for a church so I didn’t expect to see much of him until after Easter, but he made it for dinner. Â I asked him about his weekend, and he told me about a project he was trying to finish at the church…and if I would be willing to help. Â (Whenever he comes to visit me I always seem to suck him into one of my projects, so I guess it was payback time! 😉 )
Â This was the project: Â A wall dedicated to missions that the church supports. Â It is such an awesome statement for when you walk into the building. Â Their goal is to change it every three months to highlight different missions.
I was glad to help and give my 2 cents about how to do things. Â Like “seasoning” the chalkboard, mixing traditional chalk and chalk pens, and using velcro Command Hooks. Â I felt like my DIY skills were very useful, if I do say so myself! 🙂
Â We left my parents house on Wednesday and headed to College Station, TX. Â Scott and I both graduated from Texas A&M and hadn’t been back in years. Â It was fun to take the girls around campus and see all the changes that have happened since the last time we were there. Â As an added bonus two of my brothers and sister-in-laws met us.
A&M was just a pit stop on our way to Dallas to visit my father-in-law. Â He is retired and now lives on a lake outside the city. Â It was a little chilly, but we still had a great time.
To end our trip, Scott and I met my friend and husband for dinner. Â I love seeing Michele and it always feels effortless. Â She wrote a post about our visit here.
We made it home around 2:30 am on Sunday and I’m still trying to get back into the swing of things. Â The weather has been awesome, so I’m looking forward to getting my hands dirty in the backyard this weekend!
