6 days!!!!

Only 6 days til Spring people!!!!


These little bundles of color make me so happy each spring.  I am not so happy with the new camera I got last year but every once in a while I manage to get a few pics that capture what I want.  Don't you hate that?  I think my new phone takes better pics than my camera!

This one turned out nice too.

and...look at this house!  I drive by this lovely home every morning taking L to of my favs and it's hard to choose around this town...there are so many I love. 

Awe kids have just 1 more day of school this week and then it's off for Spring Break!  My awesome MIL is visiting for 7 days and we always enjoy that.  It will be nice for kiddos to have a break from all the school stuff.  It seems a lot of projects have come due here recently.

Happy Thursday everyone!

Monday, March 11, 2013's March?

Some days are just boring...
Some days are way too full...

It all becomes such a blur.
Kind of like when I think about the fact that it's already March and it will soon be summer.

I have a love/hate relationship with summer.
I love/hate having my kids home for the entire summer.
I love/hate going to the pool everyday.
I love/hate hearing my kiddos say "I'm so bored!"
I love/hate the heat.
I love/hate hearing all the locusts.
I love/hate all the time to do whatever we want.
But whatever I do, summer will be here in no time.
I think I am going to make this one the best EVER!
That's my goal.  If I spend a little more time planning it now...all will be good.

There will be lots of treks to the snow cone place right around the corner...

And since my kids absolutely love trees, lots of this doubt!

Hanging out with friends...

And I know we will spend lots of time here...

We already have some plans set.  Z starts baseball here very soon.  L and Z will be on swim team which will keep up busy daily.  K is planning on doing Summer School.  They offer a really great thing for highschoolers in Webster Groves.  They let you take classes that you would normally take during the school year, during summer so you can get them out of the way.  It's not remedial at all.  K will be taking PE and also Desktop Publishing.  Very cool!  I would have loved getting PE done during dressing-down into gross clothes during the school day!!
So those things will keep us busy quite busy...I will just make my plans work around that. 

Other than that, we have our annual trek to Kansas to see my bestie and her fam-damily, Colorado to visit my sister and all the friends that we left when we moved and to Wyoming to visit my parents.

It'll be here before we know it!

Friday...Pin Day!

In my house, Friday night has got to be easy...

I do my shopping for the weekend/week in the morning, the kiddos come home from school and then it's chill-out time!

It the one night I don't cook dinner's Pizza night kiddos and a Trader Joe's something-or-other for C and I.  Oh and wine for me...well once kiddos are in bed that's every night anyways...!

I figure pinning my favs from Pinterest seems the easiest thing for a Friday blog here goes!

Love these colors!!!!
