As you come to him, the living Stone--rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him--you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2: 4-5

Oh how I love a Saturday with nothing to do but hang out at home with the family and get caught up on life. This, however, was not that kind of Saturday. This Saturday was a get up and get going and keep going until you fall exhausted into bed kind of Saturday. But I got to spend it with my very favorite people, so I'm not complaining. It was track meet time again for Maddy. With the first track meet, she was so excited she couldn't sleep. With the next one, she was looking forward to it....til she got there, and then she wanted to go home. This one? She prayed for rain so she'd be able to stay home in her comfy bed. God answered half her prayers. It rained alright, but she still had to get up and run in it. Her coach put her in the 300 hurdles, which she was not happy about. Not sure why she wasn't happy about it, as at all the other meets, she'd practiced with the other hurdlers. Still, she did it, albeit begrudgingly.
Her coach also put her in the mile run (seen below) and the 800 (which we have no pictures of because it had started really raining and I am a wimp and didn't have an umbrella) The little girls had to come to this one, partly because my built in babysitter was spending the night with a friend (how dare she? doesn't she know I need her?) and partly because Hannah had a birthday party to go to afterward.

In the end, she was happy with her races, and even happier that Daryl and Josh came to watch her.
And, despite the fact that I was out of the house for almost 7 hours today, I was super productive, and I even read an entire book (Heaven is For Real--a quick read and rather thought provoking)
Count down on now.

5 days til Spring Break!
