My random Friday thoughts. . .
My weekly inspirational bathroom mirror quote. Talking to each other is so important and making that time a priority is important too. We need to do better about date nights. That is my goal lately. Weekly date nights. We go in spurts on that--do well for a while, then kids' schedules get crazy and we slack off. With summer and vacations we have gotten off, so we are starting new now. We live in a small town, so date nights and things to do can be challenging. I don't mind movie dates, just not every week, so I am going to have to be more creative. I have told Ben we will switch being in charge of the date each week. We enjoy playing games together. Skip-bo is one of my favorite that you can play with 2 people.
My 14 year old daughter Miss O found this book at the library last week. It is a trilogy and all 3 are out--love it when all the books in a series are out, and trilogies are so nice. She read all 3 in 3 days. She loved them. I am about 3/4 of the way through number one. Miss E, my 12 year old, is almost done with #2. An interesting, well-written, and fun fantasy story.
Then wanted to share our family pictures from the reunion.
Thought they turned out cute.
And how can it be August already?? 2 1/2 weeks till school starts again. oh.my.
Have a great weekend!
