Still going with this week of pictures project!

And here’s our evening routine. Ben helped out with taking a bunch of pictures, and my favorite moment was when he said, “I keep taking so many pictures! I’m trying to get the light just right.” Yes!! Yes, you are. And that is how a person ends up with 96 pictures after one afternoon.

Anyway, here’s our evening routine, slightly different than normal, because Janna was over for a visit! She was on staff this summer, and was one of the girls that I met with regularly to pray and talk with and stuff. She came through our door last night, and it was like sunshine. She has the warmest, sweetest, most joyful personality you could imagine, and our home was blessed with her presence last night.

Dirty dishes after supper. Normally I wash them while Ben takes the girls outside to play, but he did them last night:

Ben making “Apple Stuff”. This is our night snack almost every single night. Calling it “Apple Crisp” sounds too formal and fancy for what it is, so we just always call it “Apple Stuff”. It’s basically sugar-less, flour-less apple crisp, and it’s terribly simple to make. If you’re ever over at our house in the evening for a visit, chances are good that we’ll offer you “Apple Stuff”!

Ben threw in blueberries and strawberries this time, just for a change:

I did not get a picture of hanging out with Janna once the girls were in bed. Too bad! Ben left to do homework in his office, and I had an extremely wonderful time talking with Janna.

After she left, I had a shower, and cleaned my sink. I love getting up in the morning to a clean, shiny bathroom:

And then I went to bed!

That’s our evening! With the addition of Janna.
