Is it me, or are the weeks just going by faster? It has been a good week around here and everyone seems to be back into the routine of school. Here is a peek at our week.
Finally, one bloomed!!
Many more are ready to open any time. I love sunflowers and we planted these quite a while ago. It's been fun to watch them get so tall (most are taller than me) and now to see one open!
This is how Reese is whenever someone comes in or out the front door.
He has never tried to jump or fallen through. (yet!) If you stop on the landing, he will give you kisses too.
Today was a bittersweet day. I went over to Lori's to say goodbye to her daughter Melissa before she left for college the next morning. To say I love this girl, is an understatement. She has been such a blessing to me and my family! And my girls, well let's just say they A.D.O.R.E. her!
I love you sweet one and can't wait to see what God has planned for this new chapter of your life!
Today I took the girls the post office to send off their hair. We decided to go with Locks of Love.
There is 23" of hair in that envelope that will help to change some one's life.
And away it goes!!
On a side note. The woman that helped us at the post office was a breast cancer survivor. When she realized what they had done she started thanking them and making a huge deal over what they had done. She insisted that they hold the breast cancer stamps and have their picture taken. She even lifted them up to where they are in this picture.
She gave them coloring books for being such sweet girls too. BTW, do you notice the animal pictures between them? Those are Animal Rescue note cards and stamps that the post office sell. She thought that was a great cause too and should be represented with the girls. I guess you had to be there to appreciate and laugh at the production that was made.
Guess who I found in the backyard being naughty?
Another soda can!! This one didn't turn out quite as bad as the one last week.
I've heard that if you crunch ice you are iron deficient. What would you be if you crunch aluminum?
Tonight Ella was not very happy with Kevin. She didn't want to go to bed and of course he was firm with her that she needed to. She brought this out to him.
She made this at pre-school 2 years ago. Every week they would send home a simple Bible verse and we would keep them in this. She wanted Kevin to read various ones to her to help him understand how upset she was. He read them and there were many about love, etc. Then he read this one.
She said, "I don't like that one. I'm going to throw it away!" If you notice the paper is crumpled and smoothed back out. I guess God dealt with her drama!
I guess I haven't shared this, but I got a job. I have worked for a couple of weeks and am not sure how much I will be working yet. I was hired and have worked at one retail store that is opening another brand at our mall. The past two weeks I've been helping get that store set and ready for the grand opening tomorrow. Tonight I had to bring home my blank name tag to get it ready for tomorrow. Here is what I did.
Does anyone know the name of the store where I will be wearing this? The first person to answer correctly will get a special prize from me! And no fair answering if you are someone to whom I have disclosed this information to. Have fun guessing!!
Hope you have had a fantastic week and I'll look forward to seeing your guesses!
