A Happy Weekend

Had some fun this weekend! We spent Saturday afternoon at the park with friends. Little Man had fun playing with his cousin's magnifying glass! It's a "must have" gift for Christmas. He looked at EVERYTHING and EVERYONE through it for the longest time! On Sunday, we joined a multi-family lawnsale and LM had fun with my tag stickers!! He loves to play with a big piece of tape....he puts it on his mouth, his eyes, nose, legs, and so on. Again, for the longest time! He tired out one night, and fell asleep in his seat. :)

Girly Girl enjoys taking pictures of herself, and I had some fun in Picasa editing it! She loves the pink. That's me and Little Man sitting on the curb waiting for the Memorial Day Parade. We live in a small town, so it consisted of two state troopers, a bunch of Veterans, 4 fire trucks, a high school band and an old classic car! That was it. But it was fine. Our Labor Day Parade is much bigger!  Those sunglasses do belong to Little Man, he REALLY wanted his own pair of "lasses". He wore them A LOT over the long weekend. It was a great weekend. I can't wait for my kids to be out of school for the summer, on June 11. We love lazy mornings around here, and LM loves having them home to play with too. I'm not normally one of those moms that looks forward to school beginning again. The DiSH has a job. :) He is working at a House for Boys. He is a resident counselor there. It is a perfect fit. Right now he is part time/per diem, but they are pretty sure that he can get 40 hours a week. We are adjusting to him working on the weekends. But it's fine, we will still have plenty of time as a family. He is also a few carpentry jobs on the side. I hope that continues, because he is so good at it. The summer looks promising! My sister and I are thinking of planning a trip to either PA or NH to either Sesame Place or Storyland with the kiddos. That will be fun! For now, I am enjoying the warm weather, and watching my flowers grow!! 


  1. First of all, I got your little package today! Thank you! I will always be reminded of you when I see it on the fridge.

    Andrew loves getting the magnifying glass at my mom's house and he loves flashlights too. Congrats on The DiSH's job. Before I became a SAHM, I was the social worker at a group home (boys and girls). It isn't an easy job but hopefully one he will enjoy and can be a great role model because those kids sure need it.

  2. Oh my gosh how funny! I worked as a youth worker in a home for abused and neglected children when we lived in Wyoming. I would still be there if we hadn't moved back to GA. It isn't always easy but it is fulfilling and rewarding when you see a little glimmer of hope in a child's eye. I am so glad he got a job and you guys are doing better that way. Love the pictures of the kids. Little Man with the magnifying glass is adorable.

  3. Maggie fell in love with magnifying glasses when she was two. They are a great gift!
    I'm so glad to hear that the DiSH has a job and that it fits him so well.

  4. Sounds like you had a fun weekend! The pictures are great!! I am so glad to hear that DISH got a job! It sounds like a great one! I hope that it works into something that will be permanently full time. Oh and BTW, I got your package yesterday. What a fun remembrance of you to have on my refrigerator. :) Hope you have a great week!


I'm at Home, so stop and say Hi!
