Last week Homer spent the evening building a sub box for Elijah's car so he can "thump". He's been such a wonderful dad to this kid the last 9 years giving him the time he needs and deserves. Raising Elijah has never been easy and this man filled the role of his father 100% taking all the bad along with the good.
Olivia had her last Girl Scout meeting for the year. Next year two of the mom's will take over as the leader is moving. I offered to help when I can.
We've got the furnace running in the greenhouse. Walked in and Mandy immediately jumped in the bed. Last trip to the greenhouse for her. I've been so busy with birthday parties and finishing up homeschooling with Elijah (it's done...yahoo!!) so I haven't been out there since Nick cleaned out last year's growth. I'll be moving some plants out today.
I ran out of flats for transplanting so we took a run to a greenhouse (the first 3 I called were sold out!). We decided we liked this flower and want to grow it next year. Who could afford to fill a bed at $6 a plant? It would take 25-40 for one of my beds and I have a dozen+ in front of the house. Crazy!!
Lucas lost a tooth while we were out shopping. (and he lost another one yesterday!).
Sunday was Lucas' 7th Birthday so we had a party at the house. My nephew Jorge kept everyone in line during the air hockey tournament.
They played a memory game. They got a little while to study the items....
Video games!! Ug!
They also played Hot Potato with a "cool" potato!
In another game they tried to drop Star Wars characters into a cup. I love games!
Happy Birthday to you my little man.
What really awesome gifts he got.
He got a rocket that shot 1200 feet in the air and the man landed about 1/4 mile away. We'll have to buy another one.
This right here.... I miss my Little Lukey. Life flies by entirely too fast.
Look who I got to rock to sleep at the end of the party. Something I'll never grow tired of.... rocking babies.
This was about 11:30pm last night. This is why we put up with what we do.... lovin' the daylight!! I heard that today is our 215th straight day of temperatures below 50 degrees. That's the 4th longest stretch in the last 100 years. Hopefully we'll break that today or tomorrow. Fingers crossed... this has been one long winter.
(And you all are right... who would drive a bus if they don't love love love kids? The kids are so happy having me drive them to school each day and they get another half an hour of sleep! Only ten more days of school. I. cannot. wait.).
