Well-Spent Time

Today will go down in my personal mind records as possibly the busiest Monday ever!  Good thing I had a wonderful, relaxing weekend!

Friday was Holden’s official last visit to his preschool as a student.  We will be making a big transition from our home daycare/2 day a week church preschool to a preschool/daycare center.  I’m excited about it for Holden.  I truly think he will love it!  BUT…we absolutely love our daycare provider and will greatly miss her {as I’m sure Holden will}.  Check out my big boy!

We went to Kid’s Cove at Mt. Trashmore {yes, that is its real name – park built on trash!} on Saturday morning for a walk and some play.  The Mr. had just about if not more fun than Holden.

Roscoe was so not loving the higher humidity and temperature.

On Sunday, H and I went to church after a morning walk and some park play time.  You know you take your park time serious if you’re there before 9 on a Sunday morning.  #winning  #alltheswingswerefree  Here we are at church.  Gotta take a selfie!  🙂


I followed up my big day of work {not at all} with some front porch sitting and reading.  I’m slowly but surely working on my big giant novel.  Roscoe was my buddy!


We made a little “Countdown to Summer” chain on Sunday afternoon before our neighbors and their two daughters came over for dinner.  We had yummy food that was SIMPLE to prepare.  The best kind!  It was pretty healthy too.  I made this rice salad instead of my pasta salad.  It’s gluten free!  I didn’t use the tuna, and I absolutely loved it!  The Mr. was iffy on it.

We had a great time and ended up chatting quite a bit past H’s bedtime.  We are so enjoying our newish {we moved in June 2014} neighborhood/home for many reasons, but our nice neighbors are an added perk.

After work today, H and I took advantage of the windy day and made kites.  We got our directions via Highlights magazine.  Holden loves to pull out the recipes and craft ideas.  Thank you, Granny, for our subscription!

Holden also practiced his cutting skills.  He really, really, really loves to cut.  I’m dreading the day he cuts his hair.  I know it’s coming.


Such a fun weekend followed by a busy Monday!  I’m so blessed to get to come home and construct our flying machines, aka kits, with this dude.  Have a great week!
