Looking at the pictures for this week, it looks like the week of Mr J :) He did have a busy week and seemed to be where I had my camera. There is a photo that shows evidence of his sisters in there too. We survived the time change, which I do not like at all, and are just going to try and make it through this next week because then it is spring break! Yeah! We are all ready for a break! This past week was a pretty good one, take a look. . .
They were doing an Olympic reading challenge at school. Mr J worked very, very hard and earned a gold medal from his librarian which also happens to be his Nana. Lucky kid! Way to go Mr J!
Mr J got an award for winning in the Farm Bureau safety poster contest. He got $15 for his prize and that money was so burning a whole in his pocket. He wanted to go to the store right after the award, but I made him wait just one day before he could spend it.
And what did he spend his prize money on? A new Lego set. He loves those 3 in 1 sets. Tonight after we got home from the store Ben helped him put it together.
Spring is the season of music competitions, and we have a piano competition coming up next month. Mr J got his competition piece and has been working very hard to learn it.
This was a shot of the kids' bathroom right after they left for school this morning. Evidence of 2 teenage girls and 1 pre-teen girl getting ready for school. Needless to say, we had some discussions about this mess when they got home, and that their Mom is not a maid. Even though it sure feels like that sometimes. Anyone else relate to this???
Friday the elementary got out of school at 1/2 a day, so I just had Mr J with me. We met some friends at the park and enjoyed a few hours there before the girls were done with school, and we picked them up.
Saturday night was a relaxing one, but we were missing the older girls--babysitting and band were their obligations, so the rest of us enjoyed a movie--Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 which was pretty cute. Popcorn and movie nights on the weekends are the best!
Thanks for visiting! Have a great one and come back soon!
