What a Great Weekend!

We had a GREAT weekend! Saturday we were able to sleep in and have a nice breakfast together. Then we got to see the Weavers for some Ivanhoes (I cannot believe this is the first time we've done that), and Lillian and Elliot were able to play a little.
Let me just say, these guys have just gotten to really play together a couple times, and I LOVE IT! I love watching them interact with each other, even when they get frustrated because one of them took the other's book or toy. I love watching them assert their will and test the boundaries and explore how they can fit in the same tunnel and little box house. Such joy!
My family was able to come over on Saturday night for a double feature of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and Star Trek along with dinner. I think it was the first time that most of the family was here together without a bunch of other people, which was incredibly nice. (Also, cannot believe this is the first time that we've done that).
Sarah was able to spend the night and we went to church and Wasabi on 82nd St for some sushi....FINALLY! We've been planning this trip for over a year, since she got back from Utah and discovered that she liked sushi. What was on the menu? Edamame, mistake roll, california roll, and a volcano roll....oh my, YUM!
Then we came home and ordered some essential oils! AND a rosemary hydrosol...if you couldn't tell by my previous soap post, I'm really excited about this hydrosol thing and my hubby is making me a soap mold this week! Yay!
Two quick things....1) My article is going to be published in Sept 2011...HA! 2) I was able to get Kent Keith (CEO of Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership) to be the speaker at our Leadership Convocation next fall. So if you're a leadership alum, let me know and I'll be sure to send you an invite to the banquet.

You had a very productive weekend! But if it were me I would have left the sushi out. Yuck!

Hi Megan and Evan~

A long lost friend here. :-) I am glad I found your blog. It's beautiful - just like your family! Oh, my!

We have been getting grass-fed beef, pastured eggs, and RAW milk for a couple of years now as well! It's wonderful and we're all benefitting from it. You are so wise to start now while your oldest is young.

Have you ever seen the DVD Nourishing Traditional Diets by Sally Fallon Morell? It changed my life and the way we eat over here in Ohio. :-)

Well, glad to "see" you again. :-)

Love, Gail

p.s. I am using Jillian's account because, as of right now, I don't have one.

Hey Gail! So good to hear from you. I haven't seen the DVD you mentioned, but I'll definitely look it up. I'd love to hear of any other resources you found helpful, as well. I'm trying to learn as much as possible, and I'm definitely still just starting. :) Especially, let me know about the raw milk thing. Cause that's one of the only switches that makes me a little nervous.
Thanks for connecting with us again!
