This was our first weekend home in about month, and it was a much needed weekend of relaxing and togetherness...but don't confuse the two. I can assure you that sometimes our togetherness is anything but relaxing.
Anyway, Friday night we let the kids swim and then we put them to bed so that we could watch a movie and pretend that we were on a date. It sounds so lame, but we look forward to it every week. It's the small things in life, y'all!
I promised the kids a swimming day on Saturday, and I delivered. After a quick run to pickup my groceries, we ate a late breakfast and spent the day in the pool. Ellie taught herself how to swim, which was super exciting! She had taken off her swimmies and was trying to paddle around, but she couldn't get her body to balance. We suggested that Eli show her how to swim under water, and she was gone!
After a day in the water and playing super heroes, we had homemade pizza for dinner and now have a family scandal on our hands. More of that tomorrow. Ha! We rounded out the evening with a trip to homemade depot and a stop for dessert!
After church on Sunday, we dropped the kids off with my parents for the week. I am going to TRY to get caught up on laundry and cleaning and a few other things that need some TLC.
