We hope everyone had a great weekend! It was a beautiful one!
There's something special about weekends. Just the word, "weekend", can make you smile. Most of the time it brings much needed rest, relaxation and family time. This weekend, it did just that.
Friday night: always a favorite, pizza and movie night!
Saturday: In the morning, Elena participated in a service project at a local middle school. She made crafts with other children who were attending a Success Saturday event at their own middle school. This particular school holds Success Saturdays twice a month. It is a program geared to provide students with enrichment in Math and Language Arts. Students have three hours of instruction and one hour of activity time.
The afternoon was filled with playing outside with friends and some homework.
Saturday night the girls spent the night with some friends. Brittany and Carly had invited the girls to their house for some sleepover fun! These two sisters from church have been very encouraging to our girls over the years. They are older than our girls and are both bright examples of how someone can truly show God's love through their actions! I pray that our girls not only see and appreciate their kindness, but they learn from them and will model their own lives after these two beautiful examples! This family has had a tremendous impact on our own spiritual lives. In fact, I am a Christian today because of their mom. God has definitely blessed us with their presence in our lives!
Sunday: After church, both girls got some much needed rest. They both actually slept! Then, more homework and family time outside playing soccer and basketball.
It has been a FABULOUS weekend!
Now for the week ahead:
Our biggest prayer request is for Wednesday at 1pm. We will be having a meeting at school for Liv. The teachers and other support staff at the school will have reviewed her test results from the neuropsychologist and will be having a discussion with us about how to proceed from here. Will the learning disabilities identified by the neuropsychologist be recognized by the school? Will further school testing be needed? What recommendations will the school make?
We want Liv to get the help she needs. We just aren't sure yet what that plan will look like. We need to be patient and above all else trust that God already knows the plan and will reveal it to us!
Pray for all adults involved in the meeting.
Pray that Liv's needs will be properly identified.
Pray for God to be in the details.
Pray for peace of mind for us.
