we have had a FULL week with more excitement still to come.
life skills being taught....
waffle was naughty and completely dorky as usual.
he got on the couch while i was still home!
how is he smart enough to know not to get on when craig is home and that i won't do anything?
he slept with his leg up in the air for a long time.
read this in The Message this week....
"His love was not cautious but extravagant"
the kids tried to dress up the chickens with american girl doll clothes.
but realized chickens don't have arms to make it work.
it was funny to try though.
one of these days those chicks will be gone & we will know that they learned how to hot wire Barbie's car...
i like having lunch with my kids.
i wish i had done it with my older kids.
i didn't know that was a thing that people did.
your kids would love it if you showed up too. (with no other siblings... just you... and fast food)
campfires are pretty much the best thing ever.
i have tried my best to keep all s'more ingredients stocked all all times at our house.
mother's day was a very nice day.
i try very hard to keep expectations VERY low and that helps to keep the day flowing well.
i was treated to homemade cards by the little girls.... and cashed in that free coffee immediately.
then i went straight back in my room while they cleaned it up.
best mother's day i have had in many years.
gardening this year in pots only....this is a huge relief to me.
the thought of gardening was LOOMING over me and i wasn't excited about it.
but this is perfect!
lauren is done with high school.
it's so crazy how fast that passed!
we are so proud that she made it through with excellent grades and can't wait to see her future unfold.
her graduation is sunday afternoon.
it's been an emotional week....
this is what happens on a daily basis here.
if we don't do the dishes every 18-24 hours... it looks like this.
we even ate on paper plates that day!
i sported pigtails today.
after a 3 week break.... i went out for a run with my friends this morning.
it was short & sweet but felt so good to remember that i did still know how to run. :)
as i drank my second cup of coffee i looked down and realized i was a rainbow of colors.
so... we have a very busy weekend filled with parties to attend & to give, basketball, shopping, cleaning, rainbow cake making, graduation cermony and grandparents coming.
what do you have going on in your life?
