Summer Break Fun

We're trying to make the most of Eli's recovery by mixing some fun in with the boring moments of resting on the couch.  It's easier said than done because Eli is so limited in what he can do, so things like swimming, bowling, bouncy houses, water sports, etc. are out of the question.  Plus, anything we manage to do has to be followed by some rest so that he doesn't overdue it. 

My car has or have some work done on the wheels, so I met Eric at the dealership this morning to drop it off and pick up the loaner, then we headed to the County Clerk's Officer to renew the tags...just what every child dreams of.  Haha!  You know I had to take picture in front of our beautiful courthouse. 

As you can image, the experience was much like grocery shopping with kids in tow. And I would equate that with getting a root canal, so yeah.  Next year, I will be going alone!! 

The plan was to take the kids to Dollar Movies and then to play putt-putt since Eli was missing "golf day" with his friends at summer camp.  As per usual, I had the time and location all wrong, so the movie was out. 

I offered to take the kids to putt-putt or to Chuck E Cheeses, and after analyzing the situation, he determined that 30 tokens would be much more fun than nine holes of golf.  

After Chuck E Cheeses, we went to lunch at Pizza Hut buffet, and headed back home to rest.  Not a bad morning if you ask me.  

PS-  11:00 am on a weekday, is the PERFECT time to hit up Chuck E Cheeses.  Seriously, try it and thank me later.

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
