Farmer's Market and a First Communion

Happy Monday everyone! I am getting a chance to sit down for a moment to write this out. Rebecca is doing homework; Jacob is reading, and Benjamin is playing with his sports cards, so they need nothing from me for the moment. 

This weekend was busy but wonderful. 

Saturday started out with a trip to our town's farmer's market with my favorite daughter. We hit the farmer's market, a nearby bakery and a juice shop. We came home with lots of treats and the weather was beautiful! 

Saturday afternoon it went from sunny to rainy rather quickly with some popup storms. This gave me the perfect excuse to go through the boys' clothes and store away their winter pants and long sleeve shirts, so that they have room for their Spring and Summer clothes.  

After the storms subsided, I made dinner for the kiddos and placed an online order for Chipotle for Bill and me. We used up a gift card that I had gotten 2 years ago! 

After dinner, Rebecca repotted some begonias into hanging baskets. I think that when she is older, she will be the plant lady as she is really interested in growing plants, however our current house is not really suitable for her to have plants indoors or really anything but hanging baskets outside. 

Sunday, my nephew made the sacrament of First Holy Communion at our church. He was super excited, even though it was unbearably hot in the church (it was 90 degrees with high humidity outside and they did not have the a/c on, or they did not have any of the windows open.)


After mass, we headed to my mom and dad's house for a cookout for Ethan. He was excited because he said this was his very 1st cookout just for him! The kids had fun running around and getting sprayed with the hose. 

It really was a great weekend. 

Today, the weather is cooler and almost perfect. It is sunny and low 70s with a slight breeze. It feels so good outside. Not sure what the weather is supposed to be the rest of this week, but I do know that I have a to do list a mile long that I would like to get done before the kids get out of school for the summer. They only have 8 more days of school until Summer! 

How was your weekend? Are you looking forward to Summer? 


  1. I am glad you had a great weekend. I know your nephew was thrilled to have a party for him that was not just a birthday celebration.

  2. Nephew is a cutie. I am glad he had a celebration cookout that was just for him. It seems you had a great weekend. Can Rebecca put pots on the porch ledge where she is working? Working with plants is better than paying so much for them.

  3. Sweet reaction by your nephew! It was a nice weekend here too and yesterday's weather perfect. I wonder if one of those garden pots that have the different growing areas would work for Rebecca?
