Midweek Fun

I was planning on actually doing a "Midweek Musings" post today, but then we had some impromptu fun after school.  Of course, that warrants a blog post.  

We've missed a few weeks of church recently due to illness and traveling, so I was more than ready to get back into the groove of things .  I'm going to be honest here: Wednesdays are stinking hard.  There's not enough time to go home between picking the kids up and church starting, but it's too long for the them to wait patiently. By the time everything starts, I am kinda flustered. 

Luckily, we can fill in the time gap by visiting the park when the weather permits.  That's exactly what we decided to do yesterday.  I didn't tell the kids beforehand, so I think it made it extra special.  Don't tell them, but this will become a weekly tradition. SPOILER ALERT!!

I am so, so grateful that spring is here for so many reason.  I have such special memories of going to the park once a week with Eli when he was younger, so I want to make new memories with both of my babies. Oh, and maintain my sanity on Wednesdays. 

We started our little tradition with a selfie to commemorate the moment.  

One of the things they love to do is make up obstacle courses, so we did that together and timed everyone.  Eli was obsessed with breaking his personal record.  Ha!  I'm hoping that will pay off in the future.

Since we had missed church recently, I wasn't aware that there was going to be an Easter Egg hunt tonight.  Yay for surprise number two!!!  

And as if I needed one more reason to be thankful for the blessed day, this is the view I was afforded on my way home.  Just amazing!

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
