What a week, what a week! I thought I was going to have lots of down time with 3 of my 4 kids gone most of the week, but that was not the case. I drove over 1000 miles last week, and all of it in the rain. We had spring break last week, and it rained. every. single. day. Needless to say, we were all happy to see the sun, and I was happy to leave my car in the garage for a few days and send the kids back to school. Sadly this week started out on a sour note. Mr J woke up with pink-eye Monday morning--went to the Dr., got the drops, then this morning when I thought I could send him to school, it is in the other eye. Life is never dull :) We are just grateful for the sunshine!!
Sunday: Took my camera around my yard to get some photos of spring. This is one of our red bud trees starting to bud.
Monday: Mr J is my youngest and only boy, and his room is the cleanest out of the 4 kids. He is so good to remember to make his bed each morning. He makes it very nicely and arranges all his animals and pillows on it by himself each day. I think it is too cute, and I wish his older sisters would take a lesson from him :)
Tuesday: These shoes have been required all week with our rain each day. Mr J loves his rain boots.
Wednesday: My youngest sister invited my kids to come stay spring break with her. She lives about 5 hours away, thus the long driving I did taking them there and back (in the rain). But they had a blast with her and her husband. My sister took some pictures for me of their activities. This was a playground by my sister's house that they played at each day.
Thursday: Miss A was not able to go to my sister's because of some commitments she had at home. Instead today we went to the city (more driving in the rain) and went to the art museum. Monet's Waterlilies takes my breath away every time I see it. Once I was able to see all 3 together. That was amazing. A rainy day spent in a art museum is always a good day :) or any day spent in an art museum is a good day I think.
Friday: Happy Birthday to me! Ben made me a lemon cheesecake (from scratch, not a mix) with a strawberry sauce he put on top. It was divine.
Saturday: I went to a matinee of The Hunger Games with some friends today. It was very good. The book was better (isn't it always?), but I thought they did a good job with the movie. Miss A went to the midnight showing on Thursday. Fun stuff! After I saw this picture I had to laugh with the fire around my head. My friend said, "you're the girl on fire."
Hope you all had a good week! Thanks for stopping by!
