The boys and I glue these cups to a lazy susan to make a little crafty caddy. It is working out nicely and Sam must take after his sister and enjoys art.
I was washing the dishes and was hear Sam say things like “Jesus Christ” and “Amen”. I looked over and he had rigged up the vaccuum like this and told me he was giving a talk. It does look like a microphone when you think about it.
Some friends brought us valentines donuts from Krispy Kreme and another friend brought us sugar cookie. The YW also “heart attacked” our yard so we definitely felt some love. For our family valentine date we went out to Someburros for a tasty dinner out on their patio. That is one of the kids favorite places and its casual enough to very enjoyable with kids. We had to rush through a bit because …
Sterling getting ready to leave for his snow campout. Max wants to go with him so bad every time and he is such a brave boy and doesn’t whine about it.
So many fun valentines cards came in the mail. Thanks to all who sent them, my grandmas, my parents and Leslee. Chloe is enjoyed her first Valentine.
Through Belle’s school we got signed up for this little piano scholarship for kindergarteners where they get 6 piano lessons. She is loving it. It’s a bit of a drive (okay only like 7 miles) but its just for 6 weeks.
One morning I left Chloe in the living room while I checked the bathroom real quick before my visiting teachers came over (you know how that is) and I heard some piano music. I went in to check on things and there she was. Quite pleased with herself.
After a storm Max went out to survey the yard and came back in and told me that we wouldn’t need to buy him a zipline after all because he found one in the backyard. This palm frond was hanging down by their slide so he has been enjoying swinging on it like a jungle man.
A trip to Lowes the other morning. Their favorite store. These baskets keep the boys a little more focused.
We put up the boys bunkbeds to give us a little more floor space in their room. We just left the ladder off so no one can get up top. Sam is out the crib. Boohoo. It had to end sometime. Sterling is, as usual, father of the year. He was been teaching him to fall asleep in his bed and making good progress.
Last weekend we went through the house and came up with a nice pile of stuff to get rid of. We did an easy garage sale Friday morning and made some money pretty quick. The bonus was that a few extra yard chores got done in the meantime. The kids had a great time too and Chloe was so kind to sleep in really late.
Life is good!
