Mid-Week Musing

I was on such a blogging roll and then the chaos of spring/summer hit.  Ha!  I’m still loading pictures to my little corner of the internet with a few little notes to jog my memory for when I finally get to sit down and write.  One day I’ll get around to finally pushing that “publish” button.

I’m thinking that it might help if I do a Mid Week Musing thing every now and then to catch everyone up and dump some iphone pictures, but I’m not making any promises.  The thing is, we’re in the last 2.5 weeks of school, and I have hardly document this monumental year.  Ugh!  I don’t want Christmas to roll around before I realize that so many memories went uncelebrated in this memory book of mine!

We’re trying to keep it low-key this week before the craziness of the Merry Month of May takes its toll.  We only have a few more days of school before we celebrate kindergarten graduation, Colby’s graduation, Memorial Day, and finally pack our bags for Disney World.  Woohoo!

Speaking of Disney, these showed up on our porch this week!  The kids were so excited.  If it wasn’t already exciting enough, this just sealed the deal.  We are officially going to Disney in 25 days, but who’s counting?

In other news, this cutie graduates in 12 days! A few nights ago, we were talking about how soon kindergarten will be over, and Eli said, “I’m about to be in first grade.  Mom, we have worked so hard for this.”  Haha!  I love his enthusiasm.

Also, note how proud he is of that post-bath mohawk!

I’m going to try to be a more consistent blogger, but if I go missing again, I am probably at a school function, on the ball field, planning for Disney or sitting on my front porch watching the littles play.  I started working on the outside area this week, so consider this your sneak peak!

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
