DISNEY MATH GAME NIGHT Last week, the kids' school hosted a Disney themed math game night at the school. I took the boys to it as Rebecca was helping out her Challenge math teacher as one of his assistants to his games. Each teacher had a game set up in their classroom that the kids could play. There were snacks in the cafeteria as well.

The kids had a blast but is made for a long night as the event was a little over 2 hours long.
LUNCH TIME WITH MY MOM AND BROTHER A couple of weeks ago, my mom and sister and I met for lunch while Mary was home for Spring Break from college. We met again the following Friday. Then last Thursday my mom texted wanting to know if we were meeting up again. I said sure. So Friday we met up again for lunch at our favorite Mexican restaurant. This time my brother came as …

Nature Scenes for March 18, 2018

Sunday is meant to be a day of rest and relaxation and one of the ways that I rest is to spend time in nature. I try to spend a least a little bit of time in nature each week. I have decided that I will use Sundays to share the photos of my nature adventures each week just as a way to relax and share the beauty that is God's creation with all. I hope you enjoy!

Weigh In Wednesday #11 of 2018

Yesterday I posted in my recap of the day how Mother Nature couldn't decide if it was supposed to snow yesterday or not. Well last night, she gave us some more snow squalls so the kids are on a 2 hour delay from school this morning. I am going to get this typed up while they are getting ready for the day.
I will start out with this picture as it defines how this month is going:

Another busy day is in the books....

Yesterday afternoon, Baby A's mom texted that she was going to keep her home today as she was sick (goopy eyes, etc.) and would need to go to the doctor (I got a text earlier that Baby A has ear infections in both ears :-( Okay so no babysitting meant that I had free time. 
Ha, free time? Yeah right. It was time to get stuff done. So here is how this busy day went...
7:00-8:30 Got up, dressed and woke kids up. Started a load of laundry. Got kids fed and taken to school. It was cold and partly sunny out. 8:45- 10:00 Went to Walmart to get some stuff that we needed--- laundry detergent, toothpaste, etc. Got stuff for the kids' Easter baskets. Forgot to pick up Bill's prescription. Oops!  10:00-10:20 Stopped at Aldi (right next door to Walmart) to see if they had rain boots that were in their ad for $14.99 that Rebecca needs for camp in May (they did! Yeah!). Came out of Aldi and it was snowing heavily! 10:40-11:20 Home to put stuff away and …
