Tying knots. And we arrive again at the end of the week! This weekend we are switching off date nights with my sister and her husband, so Friday we’ll be having pizza with five kids and Saturday we are going to The Bottle for the first time. In addition to that, the boys are going out to practice golf this weekend before A’s next match on Sunday. And we’ve got derby cars to finish! Here are some of our favorites of the week!

Baby ducklings are J’s favorite, and according to my Mom, the feeling is mutual. They’ve been following him around all week. I know they will be sad to see the ducklings and chicks go (they go back to their farm this weekend). Today we’ve got school Valentine’s parties and then we have a fondue dinner planned for at home tomorrow night. And then we are sleeping in on Saturday and it’s going to be grand! We’ve had something every night this week, and I think we are all ready for a long weekend of relaxation. Here are some of my favorites of the week!

Hello friends, it’s Friday! My Mom has baby chicks in her room again this year and the boys are so excited! This week A had golf, J had basketball, and we also had a PTA meeting, and second grade performance in between all of that. Plus work and school. I turned around and the week was just over. Now, we are headed towards a weekend that also includes basketball, but I’m also hoping to throw in some organization and packing as well. And we’ve got to complete a whole bunch of Valentine’s for class parties next week. And there are class parties next week. I need a nap just thinking about it! On to some of my favorites from the week!

It’s the holiday season! While we probably won’t be getting a drift of snow again anytime soon, we are going to celebrate the in-coming of winter with full enthusiasm. School is about to be out for two weeks after a slew of holiday parties today, and we are going to sleep in, watch lots of movies, and probably play too many rounds of War (J’s new favorite card game). And while I get the rest of my Christmas wrapping done…here are some favorites from the week!

That’s a wrap on October! We are officially on the downward slide towards the end of the year festivities with Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s in our sites.
