Low key week around here.

No stitches.


We ate dinner on the patio with root beer last weekend.

Love nights like that.

Small Wonders (our religious ed class) ended.

I'm looking forward to not getting up at 6am every Sunday and fighting to get Abby out the door at 7am. Girlfriend is not a morning person.

My sweet class spoiled me with hydrangeas, Starbucks gift cards, and Barnes and Noble gift cards.

I tried to get a pic of Ab and Brody one day.

This conversation followed:

Me: Abby are you ok?

Ab: Yeah. Why?

Me: You look like you are in pain.

Ab: I'm smiling.


I had Starbucks twice in one day.

It was that kind of day.

I'm too old to stay up all night watching Black Sails.

We are having one last push for Box Tops before summer.

Trimming, checking expiration dates, and counting Box Tops is a great way to avoid doing laundry and dishes.

Abby drew a ballerina for me one day.

She said, "Look mom, she's smiling!"

When it's 7:30pm, you haven't eaten dinner, and you are just leaving church...Steak N Shake for dinner happens.

This is why Abby does not have an American Girl doll yet.


Even low key weeks are entertaining around here...
