Hi there! What a great weekend it has been/continues to be! We had such a good time yesterday, and today has been fun too. If you recall, we’ve had a few illness-filled weekends. This one feels like an actual reprieve from the work week instead of a different type of “work.” The Mr. and I watched The Best of Me last night on DVD. It’s a Nicholas Sparks novel, so you can just imagine the plot of this one. Very good sentiment and heart-touching. However, I think the Mr. is lobbying for a break from the “touchy feely” movie that I’ve been picking lately! We rose and shone early this morning to attend the 8AM service at church. H was a pretty good little dude and captured a few of the older ladies’ hearts. 😉 After church, we got to go on a walk together and do some yard work. The Mr. purchased and planted two dogwoods and a redbud. He’s way into it. Me…not so much! I did help a little with cleaning up some dead vines and just plain junky plant material in our yard. Holden had a blast finding two new “homes” for worms that popped up and just generally getting into mischief with pliers, rakes, and fertilizer. I think we pretty much blew his mind when we told him that the fertilizer was essentially “poop!” Then, Roscoe ate it, and well…there you go! Lots of opportunity for questions/conversations! Here are a few pictures from my Teacher of the Year reception (including the wristlet corsage that I wore! I felt very prom-ish!).
Truthfully, I get really uncomfortable at “things” like this. This is my nervous/frightening face.
Another interesting pic from the weekend – the Mr.’s hunting gear laundry day!
He certainly likes his gear/accessories! If he was a girl, I swear he would have a million shoes and bags!
I hope you’re having a terrific weekend! It’s amazing how simply being well and having some sunshine can be so appreciated in the spring after the winter season!
A thought for all the moms out there who are struggling with decisions, big and small!
