It snowed over the weekend, and from what I understand it’s supposed to snow tonight…
Yeah, Salem and I are ready for spring. Can I get an amen? This was Saturday.
By Sunday morning, all of that beautiful sunshine turned gray, so I threw the boys outside to play.
When they couldn’t play outside, they were doing the usual.
This color sorting is Jackson’s habit of putting like things together. This way, everyone has a buddy!
This is my favorite photo from last week (when Jackson wore his camouflage toboggan cap all day everyday). We’ve finally reached the point where Jeremy can read Jackson a simple book.
The Przylucki Texas trip was over almost as quickly as it began. Four days of driving for three days of visiting make for both a long and short trip, but despite the many miles it took for them to get here, I am thankful. It’s always been a desire of Becky’s and mine that our boys grow up as “together” as they can. The distance between our cities presents a great challenge, but so far, so good. The four boys love being together, and at their ages, we couldn’t hope for much more.
I’ll edit more photos along the way, but now I’m going to bed. Apparently sleep wasn’t on the agenda this weekend.
Let it be known that I hooked up the new washing machine all by myself.
Though that totally sounds like a five year old who just got herself dressed, let me say – I AM THAT EXCITED about it. Continue reading
Here are some photos from Jeremy’s first and second flag football game with a couple of photos from his birthday get-together in between. The parents are required to sit a good distance away from the playing field, and understandably so (those boys run all over the place!), but it doesn’t lend itself to great pictures. I’ve taken a ton but I don’t want to edit a ton. So here are a few.
Today I’m joining Jackson on a field trip to the fair, which means I’ll only go into work for a couple of hours. This week is also when Michele and I will get up early for a couple of morning shows to promote our Pink event on October 7. Not only am I not a fan of getting up at 4:45 to make the rounds on morning news shows, I’m not a fan of making the rounds on morning news shows. There are two this week. I have nervous knots already.
Somehow I’ve hung onto a childhood shirt that dates back to the early 80s when we lived in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. It’s from the University of Southern Mississippi and it clearly has my name ironed on the back. In March 2008, I pulled it out of who-knows-where and gave it to Jeremy to wear. He was four and a half years old, so that means Jackson was nearing two. (I cannot even begin to tell you how much I miss Jackson’s hair long and blonde like it used to be. The poor child was blessed with 25 cowlicks along his hairline, so we keep it tame by buzzing it.)
