Midweek report

Sorry about the radio silence. We're all fine. Just busy. Apparently crazy is the new normal. We fit right in.

We got to enjoy some nice weather over the weekend, so there was a lot of running around outside. Dada has picked a spot for a garden, so he was spraying the RoundUp to kill off anything in the area so that he can till up the soil and get that all going. It's a nice, sunny spot, so keep your fingers crossed that it will produce. He even has an asparagus patch in mind, though you don't get yields from one right away.

There are pool noodle remains all over the yard from the epic battles that were taking place. I hear Prince Humperdink in my head, "they were both masters... it ranged all over..." We had the Richards crew down Friday night for dinner and a playdate. We'd thought we'd go bowling, but the kids were having so much fun just being outside in beautiful weather that we started a fire in the firepit instead and let them goof off until way past our kids' bedtimes. It was great. We all really needed it.

This week has the usual, karate, school, we're making it to moms' group today, laundry, dishes, homework, sheets, etc. Damon helped me with an Aldi run yesterday before school. He came home from preschool, zipped on his puffy vest, and completely crashed sound asleep in the big chair. Must have worn the poor guy out. I don't know how he's going to make it through all day kindergarten. I need a nap just thinking about it.

Remind me to post about the lightning bug quote. You don't want to miss it.

Must dash. There's a winter coat clad- sunglasses on his face- shoed kid clinging to my arm, telling me I smell like lotion. He's excited to see his friends at moms' group, some of whom we haven't seen since before Christmas.

Have a wonderful week! And be on the lookout for lightning bugs! ;)
