Things have been busy around here! I had to be at a meeting for school on my actual birthday, so my mom offered to watch the kids the night before and Zach and I got out for a kid free meal! We really enjoyed having an hour or so to ourselves and to eat dinner out at a grown up restaurant!
It was a very good day! I feel extremely blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life who love me!
Saturday morning we headed to Zach’s school for the annual tailgate party to kick off their football season. This year they had a fire truck there and the firemen were sooooo nice and let Reed look all around and climb in the truck! He was soooo happy!
Can i also just talk about how dramatic our almost seven year old is? We were working on homework and she wrote one letter backward and I told her to fix it and she went into hysterics about how she is awful about her writing letters and numbers and shapes. Oh what fun we have ahead!
We went to church Sunday morning and came home for the day. Ava got some unexpected toys in the mail last week and we let her keep two and put the rest of the pieces away. She was trying butter me up to get one yesterday. She went into the laundry room and saw the dryer had gone off and she said “The laundry is done. I’d be happy to fold it for you.” ha! She did a great job. Little does she know she may have earned herself that job more often! :)
Reed didn’t eat his dinner very well last night so we left it on the plate for him, knowing he’d inevitably ask for a snack. When he did, I told him all he could have was his dinner. I was in the living room and turned around and caught him trying to throw his green beans in the trash!
We had a wonderful weekend. We have a super busy week this week. We have something going on every single night with various meetings, activities, etc. I’ll be glad when this week is over and we get a three day weekend!
Be sure and check back in tomorrow for something fun I have in the works!
