I was in Boston with the sun, flying out to see a friend in Oklahoma for a few days.
She lives in a very walkable neighborhood, which I did every morning while the family was getting off to work and school.
It was great except for the one time the german shepard hopped his yard fence and came to "greet" me. I tried not to panic while his very overweight owner tried to climb over the same fence (much less successfully) wearing only his shorts. Now that I know I didn't get bit or maimed, its actually comical.
Back at home the kids were doing dress rehearsals and then sleeping in late from those rehearsals.
We went to a friend's house to make some jewelry. I was wishing my girls were with me...they are much more creative and crafty!
I spent the day driving from Oklahoma down to Houston to see my sister and meet my newest niece. It was so great to see where they live and spend time with them and Miss Willow is all things sweet.
Opening night of Mystery! H enjoys his job as a greeter and the others have been gracious to embrace him.
My mom and Russ took the kids to the union picnic, where there was unlimited food and fun. Aiden was quoted as saying he was glad I wasn't there. When I was giving him a hard time about it later he said, "Yeah...if you were there you would have told me two cotton candies were enough." :)
During Saturday night church I was teaching in the toddler room (and by teaching I mean attempting to keep all the kids safe...some weeks every thing works well, other time...not so much). H thought I would appreciate it if he took notes for me. Yes, I did...this represents so much.
Aiden is a notice-er of beauty and is always excited to point things out to me. He spotted this hummingbird that was caught on our porch. What magnificent creatures!
Back to school shopping...so much learning is going to happen in these pages.
