Today the kids didn’t have to do science or their math facts– a little valentines treat from their teacher. Their teacher also took them to Chick-fil-a for lunch and let them get milkshakes AND had some surprises for them when they woke up. Mack got football cards, of course. He got the girls a stuffed animal and wrote them a funny valentines card. He is a little comedian. “Dear Ruby, Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you like your gift. Now act like I’m saying something meaningful.” “Dear Molly, Molly-Girl I bet you still have your hair like a unicorn. Now take this moment of silence….” Molly puts her hair in a bun in the evenings and then after sleeping like that all night, the bun scoots to the front of her head and she looks like a unicorn. So he found a stuffed unicorn for her. Cracks me up. Rolo got a treat from the PetPeople store. They were giving away a pound of dog biscuits with every purchase today. She gets a haircut on Friday. This is her first time at a groomer, and I am hoping she does well. I also hope we can see her eyes after Friday! She is a funny dog. Hope everyone has a great Valentine’s Day! We sure are! Edited to add: Molly did NOT get out of the car. She was just along for the ride and the milkshake! haha!
I am trying to post once a week on this-here blog, so before this first week in February comes to a close, let me take some time to post some photos and keep things updated. First of all, the dog. Rolo is a sweet dog. I have had to move my quiet times to my room where I can be […]
17 years of marriage. That’s what we got away this weekend to celebrate, and I am so glad we did! We went to a Bed & Breakfast about forty-five minutes away. Josh has stayed there before and thought we would enjoy the quiet and the short drive—he was right on both accounts. Between his job and all that it entails […]
Last week, the flu. This week, snow. I give up. I wave the white flag of surrender. Maybe my new New Year will be February 1. This year has gotten off to a not-great start–especially where school work is concerned. So, the kids did spelling and grammar and Math today. Everyone has read a little. But mostly they have been […]
Waking up to the sound of someone throwing up is never encouraging, but I will say it was expected. It is Mack’s turn to encounter the full brunt of the flu. Ruby and Molly have already done so. It was only fair that he get started with this dreadful sickness, and I suppose the sooner he starts, the sooner it […]
While I am fully convinced that there is no formula, no 2+2=4 that produces a close-to-perfect kid, I did find this book quite interesting. Rebecca shares much of her personal challenges growing up and how her parents helped her navigate life and grow into a mature young adult, able to make good decisions and be a contributing member of society. […]
Rolo is about three months old now. She is a good dog! She sleeps ten hours at night, which is a blessing!! The kids love her and do a good job taking care of her. She likes to go on walks and play in the backyard. And she loves doing things that earn her treats– like sit, down, come, and […]
