Good morning! Yay, it’s Monday – my favorite day of the week. So far, I’m completely on schedule with everything I need to do this week! I love how the Mommy guilt switch in my brain resets on Sunday at midnight. I got a lot done last week, but there’s always another MOUNTAIN of laundry to do or toys to pick up or WTFever, y’know? Today, I need to run over to the kids’ new school and finish up some paperwork for them to start KINDERGARTEN! Which begins, get this: next month! Yeah, they just got out of school for the summer, but their new school is on a year round schedule, and school starts the week after Independence Day. They only go for a few weeks and then they’re out for a few weeks, and then they’ll start their 9 weeks on, 3 weeks off schedule for the rest of their school year. Can you believe it? I almost have two kindergarteners!
Over the weekend, we went to a birthday party for a close friend – Angie’s son and Taylor’s little brother, Jackson. He turned three years old! It doesn’t seem like he should be three already – he was a tiny baby at our wedding! But then again, so were Nikki and Lexi, so I guess he’s right on track! The party was out in the country at his grandpa’s house. They roasted a pig (which was the most horrifying thing I’ve seen in awhile – it looked like a dead body inside the barbecue pit!) and the kids got to ride a horse, which was the greatest thing EVER as far as they were concerned. Here are a few pictures of them:
Nikki and Lexi:
This one isn’t the best picture ever, since it’s more of the sky than the horse, but I love Mallory’s smile so much here:
We had to leave before the crowd dove into the dead pig, because our kids were hot and grouchy and starving and just generally driving us crazy, so I figured they were REALLY driving other people crazy! The kids crashed OUT in the van while we drove across town to pick up Paul’s mom, then all of us went out to eat. They were really ready for bed by the time we finally got home!
And then yesterday was Father’s Day. My dad and Paul’s dad were both over here for a little while to visit with us and the kids. We didn’t really do anything too crazy for Father’s Day, but it was nice to see everybody.
And how was YOUR weekend?
