Frag Slacker


I have been a Fragment Slacker!  But it's a good thing; we've been busy doing fun things on the past few Fridays.  Today we are leaving in about an hour to go to the Springs, so I am sitting down for a few minutes to Frag!

My youngest daughter and my Mother-in-Law are peas in a pod.  Mary Ellen is a teacher, Elayna wants to be a teacher when she grows up.  They love learning and they're both smart.  They're also both musical; Elayna plays the flute in her middle school band.  Mary Ellen has played piano for many years.  She plays for her church.  She also sings.  She is now giving Elayna piano lessons.

So this week, from Monday evening till Thursday morning, while I worked, Elayna hung out with her "Nana".  They shopped, swam, ate, went to the movies, and went to Wild Waters with friends on Wednesday.  Nana's dog ate Elayna's flip flop; Nana took her shopping and bought her two pair of flip flops and a dress.  (I threatened to start feeding my shoes to the dog!)  Mary Ellen has never had granddaughters, and she absolutely loves my girls!

We all went to Chili's for lunch yesterday and
shared a brownie sundae.
YUM!

Shelbie has been on a Church mission trip in Savannah, Georgia this week.  I've been getting email and text updates.  She will be back this evening, and I can't wait to hear all about it.


Tomorrow we'll be going to my niece's "Baby Sprinkle", a small shower since it's her second girl.  Heather has boatloads of girl stuff but the two girls are 'seasonal opposites'; Hayleigh was born in February and this little girl is due in August.  So we're just having a small sprinkle.  It will be FUN!

Hope y'all had a great weekend and have a wonderful weekend! 
Visit Friday Fragments over at Unknown Mami's place this summer.

That's so sweet your mother-in-law and daughter have so much in common! They probably learn alot from each other. And now I want ice cream and brownies!

Love those brownie sundaes--they are scrumptious! I think going on a short-term missions trip would be exciting, never done that but sponsored lots of others.

I didn't manage to frag this week either and I even had a list of notes on my phone! I typed it up though so I'm ready for next week! :-)

I just heard that term "baby sprinkle" the other day for the first time. Sounds like fun. I love that Elayna spent time with her grandmother. Sounds like a great bonding time and lots of fun too.
