Here are some pictures of a doe and her fawn that I took this morning through my bedroom window. They’re a little blurry because I didn’t have time to change the settings on my camera. The momma was very alert, and I knew she would take off if I tried to go outside to get a better picture. The fawn is only a few days old and still a little wobbly on its feet. Country living does have its benefits.
I enjoyed a quiet weekend puttering around the house trying to get things looking tidy again following our vacation. I’ve got just about all of the laundry caught up, and all of the floors have been mopped. There’s something about a clean floor that makes me feel good. However, there’s no rest for the weary. Just when things are beginning to get back to normal around here, I’ll start packing today for another trip. The kiddos and I are heading to Florida to spend some time with family. I’ve got quite a bit of ironing today to make sure Mr. C has enough dress shirts to last him until we get back. The fun never ends. 😉
Yesterday at church we had a two visiting families. They had a combined 8 children under the age of six, so our Sunday school classes and nursery were a little bit busier than normal. On Sunday night, one of the families returned with their 5 little girls. I had a fun time with three of them as it was my scheduled week to care for the little ones in the nursery. The young mother seemed so encouraged by our services and said that she’d been praying that the Lord would lead them to a good Independent Baptist church. Today I’ll be baking a big batch of brownies for our visitors.
Well, I need to get busy with my long to-do list. I wish you all a wonderful week!

The photos were great. I felt like I was there. It seems that you have been very busy.
I know the young mother has found a very good Ind. Baptist Church if it is anything like ours. Have a very happy 4th. connie from Texas

Have a happy trip. Glad to hear about your returning visitors. I’m sure your husband was encouraged by that.
I know exactly what you mean about the extra children visiting! We’ve had that happen for two weeks in a row, but this past week there were NO children! LOL It’s just one surprise after another, eh?
Enjoy your trip!
Mrs. C says
Yes, he was very encouraged!
You just never know what a day may bring! When my class is empty I feel like my whole week of prayer and preparation were for naught, but then I just get my eyes off of myself and back on the Lord where they belong. 🙂 I’m sure you’ve felt the same way before.
Country living does indeed have its benefits! :o) Enjoy your trip to Florida!
I love your pictures! We have deer come around here every once in a while too and the girls love to watch them. Hope ya’ll have a wonderful time in Florida! I can’t wait to go back =P
It is always so encouraging to see visitors come back on Sunday nights.
Mrs. U says
How peaceful. My parents live in the midst of a good bit of land and often have deer right up at their front porch nibbling on impatiens. 🙂
