What a soggy week it's been here! We still managed to get out and have some fun though. Here's a peek.
Whenever it is hot and humid with rain or storms, we will get some of these popping up in our backyard.
We call them toadstools and knock them down. Kyla thought the round ones looked like microphones!
Received this letter a few weeks ago for today...
Went and sat through the longest questioning process ever! I served just over two years ago and went through nothing like this. I was a second round candidate and was not chosen this time. (Insert sigh of relief here) When I came out I found this on the van.
Good day to go to the library today and sign up for the summer reading program. I love that my kids all love books and reading!!
When we came home Kyla was playing outside and then was coming up the back deck stairs and fell. She got a nasty scrape and goose egg on her chin. It was hard for her to keep the ice on it, so we got creative.
She thought that was pretty fun!
Today a couple of things happened that I am just not ready for. First, I watched a friend's boys while she went to the doctor. Her oldest is the same age as Ethan. After they left Ella drew this picture for him.
It's the two of them. Notice the hearts? When I asked her what they meant she said, "love". Ethan and Ella are like oil and water, so for a boy his age to treat her kindly was huge for her. I think we had a first crush!
The other thing I wasn't ready for today was this.
Do you know what this is? This is a reason I will have to wear heels or walk on my tippy toes the rest of my life! This has put me into denial. These two marks are Bryce and my height measurements. Let's just say mine is the one on the lower side. UGH!!! How is my 10 year old taller than me?!!!
These were the cause of much fit throwing, possible gnashing of teeth and a missed t-ball game.
Ella has MAJOR issues with socks. She is always complaining that they "feel funny" and it has been the source of major problems many mornings. Thankfully when it's warm, sandals are here and we're good, except when it's t-ball time. Tonight's episode was so bad that she had to call her coach to tell him she wouldn't be there. Oh please, let this pass before it gets cold again!
Some cute little legs getting dried off after being in the pool. Went this afternoon with good friends from our small group. Thankful for friends to play with, nice adult conversation and a cool refresher from the heat.
Do you like chocolate raspberry? It was time for some tonight.
Fooled you, huh? So thankful for a stylist who tells me exactly what to use and how to do it and for a mom that has a beautician's license and can get the products at dirt cheap prices! I have been doing this for a while now and can I just say that the salon price for hair color is ridiculous!
Hope you have had a super week!!
