Every So Often

Every so often, one of these unusually calm days pop up unexpectedly.

Boy, did I need it more than ever!

Everyone was good. No fights. No crying. Things got accomplished. Lots of laughing & silliness.

This little angle is lying on my baby blanket.

I found it this week. It was made by my aunt when I was born and has my initials stitched into the back.

Oh! She is just scrumptious.

When I look at this picture I just want to kiss those little cheeks, make her smile & hold her close.

Learning to use measuring cups in math.

These chickens are cracking me up!

They follow us around the yard and chirp at us when they want something.

Today, I was kneeling down working on something in the yard. One just walked right up to my leg, as close as it could get and started chirping away.

They stay right together all the time. They follow each other around the yard and cuddle together in their coop.

Two hawks were flying overhead today circling our yard though. Doesn’t seem like a good thing… Maybe we shouldn’t get too attached.

Roman was proud today that he finally figured out how to catch one of these fast little ladies.

Roman FINALLY made it up to Super Student in class today!! Big candy rewards for that one!

You can see Jude here playing with his favorite little buddy. The cat’s name was initially “Tigress” but Jude seems to have renamed it “Figaro” since Minnie Mouse has a cat with this name.

This is Hazel. I think she is getting a little too comfy. She found a nice warm spot to lie down…


I’m so looking forward to summer!

Free movies and bowling every week.

Tons of play dates scheduled.

My sister’s sweet baby girl is coming soon.

It’s gonna be fun!
