She has perfect timing, that one.

It's been exactly one week since Lilah finished preschool and in one week all 3 of my kids will be home with me all summer long. Hoping to squeeze every bit of peace I can before that time, I sent Lilah to water camp put on by her church preschool all this week. I know, shameful. It's only been 1 week & I've already passed her off. She was THRILLED to pack a lunch & put on her bathing suit this morning and can hardly wait to go again tomorrow. So it's a win for both of us.
I'm committing to laying low til Friday with baby Clara, who turns 1 year old on Saturday (can-you-even-believe-it face).
Last night we headed over to Busch Gardens to catch Chris Tomlin in concert. All of our babysitters were unavailable so we made a family night of it. What a neat experience for my kids to be a part of a group of fellow Jesus-lovers, singing along with one of the most influential worship leaders of our time!

Here we are quite the picture of a loving family, complete with daddy snuggling giggling baby in the background.
Two of the parks' sky-high roller coasters looped as the backdrop to the concert stage. The hollering from riders mixed with the voices in the stadium made for a fun celebration; heavenly. Well, if heaven is 3 million degrees and sweaty kids are climbing all over you.
No seriously, there was a point where he sang Indescribable and the sun was setting as these lyrics echoed among the reverent crowd:
"Who imagined the sun and gives source to its light
Yet conceals it to bring us the coolness of night
None can fathom
Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name
You are amazing God"
The crowd was still, silent. 
It was something special.
In that remarkable moment my daughter yelled out 
"MAAAHHHMEEEEE! Carter said SHUT UP TO ME!!!"

Yeah it may have been my proudest mom moment.
