So without further ado, I'll bring you up to speed on the ins and outs of our ordinary life.
Mary Frances and Stephen both ran in the Mercedes Kids Marathon. As I said last year, I think this is a really cool concept and am thankful that both of my children were willing to participate. It saddened me that Mary Frances was one of two 2nd grade girls at Crestline who registered. Shocking and made me realize that I should have followed through on getting a group together on Saturday mornings in the fall to run the mile loop. Maybe next year!
It has been wet and cold or just cold or even worse just wet. We've eaten a fair amount of soup. The hostess for my girl's supper club last month served chicken and wild rice soup. My friend who signed up to bring bread brought bread bowls from Panera. I thought it was such a fun idea that I copied her a couple of days later.
Warm, dry days have been few and far between, but when the weather permitted we have spent as much time as possible outside. The big kids took some of their "spending money" from Great Mama to buy ice cream on Sunday while the babies napped. What a fun treat!
Who knew dirty clothes, blankets, and sleeping bags could be so much fun.
