You know what I never mind at 6:20 a.m. on a Saturday morning??
Being tagged in a photo like this ;)
My AWESOME principal was graduating with his PhD on Friday and we celebrated in true Middle School style, by dressing up as doctors or scholars. I thought I had scrubs, but I couldn't find them, so I dug out Dave's MHS Honors Academic Letter Sweater and some 3D glasses sans lenses and went as an Academic for the day. And to answer the inevitable question, Dave did not graduate high school in 1962. Apparently in 1999 when Dave was inducted into NHS he received this fashionable sweater. I got a stadium blanket, which while much more practical, can't compete with the sweater.
While I was gettin' nerdy with it, Griffin was helping herself.
No worries, it's tea! (because that totally makes it better, right???)
Right as the morning bell rang, Pomp and Circumstance played over the loud speakers, kids brought out their air horns and we made Dr.E walk the deck.
Meanwhile, GG was too cool for Daddy's picture (in shoes that she picked out herself) at Miss Lisa's house.
The rest of my day I spent preparing middle schoolers for an exam that's going to cover everything I've taught since Christmas and it was JUST as fun and exciting as it sounds (sigh). When school got out, Luke wanted to stay at ESS and I didn't argue with him, so I took my grading and exam prep home and worked from my bed. And by work I mean graded 3 sets of test, watched the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Parts 2 and 3 (#teamkyle !!!) and then took a nap.
Friday night is pizza night and last Friday was no different - still my favorite night of the week.
Griffin went down early, Luke was working on a Lego project and Mason asked me to watch Veggie Tales with him, and I couldn't say no to those sweet little toes!
Saturday morning Luke went to skating and Dave and Mason hit up a small local car show. When they got home, Mason told me that he found a car that was "big enough for just me and him. Because he loves me. And I'm pretty." Well played, Mason. Well played.
Griffin and I headed to Home Goods to look for a couple of things for her room...
... and she was killing it in her ensemble ;)
After lunch and naps it was Duplo time. Legos aren't just for her big brother, this girl LOVES building as well!
The kiddos built while I worked on a few things for Griffin's room...
... and playing turned into this ;) #ohtheinjustice
This kid LOOOOOOOOOVES a good snuggle.
And a bonus is how much his sister hates it when I'm holding anyone other than her.
He pretended to be asleep and "won". I didn't hate all the snuggles.
Concert time! She's his biggest fan.
Saturday afternoon Luke was playing at Carter's house and so we picked him up, came home and ate dinner and then we all crashed early. Sunday morning we braved the rain and headed to church. Some of us wore tie dye ;)
After church the rain had stopped and we were raising the roof for a break in the weather AND for the mac and cheese that had been promised for lunch ;)
Luke's got moves and Mason only has eyes for roley poleys.
And apparently a face punch is a popular dance move ;) #notsomuch
Sunday afternoon we napped, did laundry and then met friends from our Sunday School for tacos. I took not a single picture, but there was a SLEW of crazy kids and fresh guacamole. Trust me when I tell you it was a great time.
And we decided to cap off a great night with ice cream at Sonic! This girl didn't hate it...
And neither did this sweet boy.
We swung by Gibi and Haha's house for goodnight kisses (a total perk of living down the street!)
When we got home we hung out in the yard for a few minutes enjoying the little bit of sun.
So when did he turn 14?!?!?! #bestillmyheart
After they were sufficiently worn out and Mason's allergy eyes were watering, we headed in for bedtime stories and snuggles. She's loving her big bed!
We've had weeks and weeks of gloom and rain (and it looks like there's more in the forecast for this week), so I pulled up the blinds in our bedroom and enjoyed the last little bit while working on exams.
I hope y'all had a sunshiney and restful weekend! Don't forget that tomorrow is "Show and Tell Tuesday" and we're going to be sharing our "Momfessional Moments". You know, like how you pack an extra Capri Sun in your diaper bag for yourself or that one time you had friends over for dinner the same week you had a baby and didn't realize that you had been "leaking" all over the place until after they went home. ;)
