Playing CatchUp



I know, I know; Friday is almost over and I am just now fragging. It's just that I have so much random stuff to post, and finally had a moment to sit down and post it!




I'm trying to get caught up, and starting (sort-of) fresh. So if I've missed anything, I'm sorry, I still love you, smooch smooch.
I am 'marking as read' everything in the reader that's older than one day, and clearing out the mailbox, to save what little is left of my sanity.



I am SO ready for summer break! I feel like life is full of running from this appointment to the next, picking kids up, dropping kids off, soccer practice, soccer games....then, starting all over again. I'm not complaining - I'm just TIRED!




I chose the ladybug dividers because today, after picking up the big kids from high school, I pulled into our lane to find Elayna (who had stayed home with John & Andrew) walking along the wildflowers, holding a ladybug. I love that girl SO much!!



Today I walked into the seasonal aisle of Walmart, which was full of graduation gifts. I immediately teared up, turned around, and walked away. Sigh.




Andrew: Mama, today one of my friends said something about Elayna that was NOT nice and it made me really mad.
Me: What did he say?
Andrew: He said "your sister is a BABE".
Me: Died.


Go check out what I've been cooking and snag some fun new recipes!






Don't forget to visit Mrs 4444's for more Friday Fragments!

Mommy's Idea

We will be at Soccer Tournaments all weekend!

Thank you for visiting and commenting on my blog. It's nice to meet you through FF. I'm LOL over here at the "Your sister is a babe" comment! I'm off to check out your southern food blog...it sounds like it could be music to my stomach. :) Have a good weekend!

Your owls are so cute, I'm a fan of them myself.

Keith Urban is so lovely, I had never heard this song before but I'm glad I have now.

Here is a magic wand (use your preschool imagination please)

Your reader has been zero'd out and you are free to start fresh!

Don't you feel better?! :)

What a sweet sight to see your girl with the flower and ladybug.

LOVE IT, "You sister is a BABE!" Too funny!

Most of my friends are all tearing up over preschool graduation! Me? When mine graduated, I thought, "YAY full day school.. and it's FREE!" Can you tell I'd been coming off a couple of years of double preschool tuition... can't wait for college *eye roll*

ChiTown Girl said...

Tee hee!

Well, why WOULDN'T she be a babe?! Look at her mom! DUH!

"you're sister's a BABE" *giggle.*
My second grader came home and informed me there's a book in the library at his school (Dinosaur book) that has a cavewoman with her "mommy bottles" showing. You gotta love parenthood :)

Kat said...

Hahaha! And awwww. That was so sweet. A babe. I love that. Love that it made him SO MAD too. :)

I am SO ready for summer too. I can't wait!

I get sad in the graduation aisle too, and my kids are FAR from it. *Hugs*

To think that one day, we will miss it all (the running around with kids). Or will we?haha

Here's to an entertaining, rain-free tournament!

Ten more days for me!! :)

You might have to use those ladybug dividers again, they are too cute.

Getting called a babe is okay in my book.

Cat said...

Bwahahaha, a "babe"

I'm just now getting back into a regular posting habit too... sometimes life just takes over!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I love ladybugs, hoping to see one soon in the yard! So Elayna is a babe, it is a great compliment!
(you will survive all of this)

I am behind too. I finally realized I am just not going to really catch up so I have definitely missed posts from lots of people. Sometimes life just gets in the way.

LOOOVE that your daughter was called a babe & that Andrew got so upset about it, that is so cute!
