Why does the week before Spring Break always feel chaotic? Is it because I know that there are days of sleeping-in? It's like the weeks before you have a baby; you know it's coming but seems like it takes forever to get here.
I actually haven't even logged on to the computer since Sunday! I had over 25 blog entries to catch up with on my reader. I have lots of blog post ideas but not the time to write them. So today you get some random snippets about our home.
Reagan lost her first tooth!! She was so excited! It was VERY wiggly for a few days and I told her "why don't you just grab and pull it out?" So she did. Easy peezy! The tooth fairy left her a gold dollar coin in her "tooth box" that was on her nightstand. (It was also really dark and the tooth fairy almost woke her up by dropping the porcelain top to the box onto her nightstand and making a large crash!) The following morning, she asked if she could put her gold coin in her BGMC (mission fund for our church) box. What a sweet and giving heart she has!
Since Reagan lost her tooth (and has been getting attention for it), Skylar has decided that she wants to lose a tooth too. She eats apples almost daily to try and make her teeth wiggly. I don't have the heart to tell her she has at least a year until her teeth start to fall out.
We finally got rid of the cold bug in our house...only to have it revisit us this week. I'm praying it's just a short, last hoo-rah before spring finally sets in.
Speaking of spring, we are loving the warmer weather and spending more time outside (and the fact that it's lighter later). I can almost smell summer.
I spent most of last weekend pulling weeds (and dead trees) out of our backyard. It's no where near finished. It's a much larger job than I ever imagined. I had to stop because our trash can was full (and my back hurt like crazy!). After all the weeding is done, I still need to re-plant, and mulch. *sigh*
I haven't forgotten about the "Ten Dollar Healthy Dinners". I just want to do it for an entire week so look for it starting Monday.
After the week of recipes and ideas, I will host a giveaway in celebration of our one year blogiversary and over 100 posts! Woo hoo!
Tomorrow is Reagan's "Open House" at school. She is so thrilled to show us what she's been working on. It's no coincidence either that the Book Fair just "happens" to be going on. I guess we will have to make a stop there to check it out on our way home.
I was able to find more peppermint mocha creamer so the crazy week has been a little easier to handle. :)
I hope your week has been going well!
