Weekend Rewind

Happy Monday!  Does it feel like Spring where you live??  It's warm in Indiana!

We all had a busy week last week so it was nice to have a quiet weekend - we did some fun things and had a good time at home.  I'm trying to wrap my head around the upcoming weeks of Spring Break and birthday parties.

My good friends from Terre Haute met up with me for dinner.  We coordinated 5 family schedules and 9 kids to make it happen.  We each drove an hour and met in the middle.  It was so much fun!!  We were too busy catching up and eating to remember to take a picture, but I LOVED hanging out with them.  I miss them all terribly.  It was a little road trip that was very good for the soul!!  A MNO glow :)  My mom surprised me with these fun earrings!

Local to Terre Haute people - you've got to try this Everyday Seasoning Salt from Simply Sons.  It's amazing!!  I got stocked up on it and my meats and veggies will be so much better for it.  You can find them on Facebook or buy them from their website.

Olive's teacher invited parents to come in and read for their Reading Marathon on Friday.  It was the very first time we had been given an opportunity to go into their classroom.  It was so much fun!  I just love 3rd graders and they seemed to really enjoy my books!  It was fun to be in her classroom, to get to see where she spends her days and get to be around her friends.  

I was heading back to the office and bumped into Fletcher's class getting their Spring pictures taken.  I'm not sure who was more excited - me or Fletcher.  He gave me a giant hug and we both went on our way.

I know it doesn't seem like a huge deal, but getting to see both kids in their new school made me so happy.  I'd prayed that somehow I'd get to see Fletcher, too, so when it happened I was just really thankful that God cares about the littlest details of our lives and our prayers.

Lots of scootering for this guy!  He's a total danger to himself on the road or driveway so we stick to scootering in the garage, on the patio or in the house.

We enjoyed lots of sunshine!  Pearl follows the sunny spots around the house and naps the day away.

Our extra lot should be getting seeded very soon so the kids and I spent a good chunk of time picking up rocks and random construction trash from the area.  Then they played down in our creek.  We spent a lot of time last week working on details of our backyard fence.  I think that we got that all ironed out and should have a fence in the next month or so. 

My life in a nutshell right now.  

Leo is quickly approaching his 2nd birthday and showing zero signs of slowing down.

We went to Saturday night church.

I always try to make extra yummy breakfasts on the weekends.  Things that take longer that we don't have time for during the school week.  French Toast Sticks from Sams were on demand this weekend.

We went on several walks.

and LOTS of scootering with this cute scooter gang!

I'm excited for a fresh new week!


  1. I’m so glad you got to meet up with some friends, that is good for the soul! And yay for being in Olive’s classroom! (And seeing Fletcher too!) you live in such a pretty area, I love all that farmland.

  2. What a great weekend! So glad you got to see the kids at school. <3

    It was gorgeous here too in Ohio-- 70's on Saturday!!! We met up with another family for a picnic and trails at a nature preserve...and all five members of my family wore shorts, hahaha! We were very excited about the weather. It was definitely a gift to have a day like that in March!

    Those French toast sticks look so yummy. I like the idea of festive weekend breakfasts!

  3. I'm dying to know about Saturday night church. Can you choose if you want to go Saturday or Sunday? I love that idea! Leo cracks me up!

  4. Old Chicago is the best! I'm so glad that one is still open. Did you know that it used to be a movie theater?

    Awwh those special trips to school are the best.


I LOVE hearing from you!! Thanks for taking the time to leave sweet comments; I enjoy reading every one of them.
