Good morning, Friends!
How is it Friday already?! We’re linking up with some of our favorite bloggers again this week and it’s been a great week!
First up? I’m DONE with school. Forever! Done. A Master’s is good enough for me 😉 It feels so good to be done and getting a slice of my life back.
On Saturday we headed to Baltimore to watch the Orioles and Red Sox play. It took 3 hours to go a typical 1.5 hours. Gotta love the traffic and rainy weather 😉 It’s never a good mix in VA!
Because of the rain, Nick ended up not wanting to go over to the game so I took the kids swimming and I started reading my new book. Since I’m getting my life back, I’m going to kick off May with decluttering our lives. The kids didn’t mind going to the game because they only wanted to swim anyways 🙂 While they swam, I was also able to keep an eye on the game. Nick ended up watching it in the room.
With my beloved new free time, I’ve put my computer away while the kids are home and Sterling gets to have tea parties with me. Her favorite!
We’ve also been playing lots of games. Old Maid, Crazy 8, Sight Word Bingo, and Uno Attack are some of our current favorites.
I finally said “yes” to playing those darn claw machines to win prizes and we ended up winning Peppa and George. After wasting $5 🙁 The joy in this little girls eyes was priceless (although you can’t see her eyes because the sun was too bright, ha!)!
We finally made it back outside after nearly a week of rain. A little fresh air does everyone good. These two worked as a team to push the dead power wheel up. It only holds a charge for five minutes. I ended up buying a new battery for the thing! I should’ve ordered it last year when it constantly died, but I didn’t. He’ll be so happy next week when he can ride his four wheeler longer than five minutes 😉
Having mom guilt was definitely not a favorite. Friday morning Xander complained of the back of his neck hurting before school. Since he didn’t have a fever, I told him maybe he slept on it wrong, and he needed to get ready for school. He kept complaining and I was contemplating keeping him home, but since he didn’t have a fever, I couldn’t see a reason. An hour and a half after school started, I received the dreaded call from his nurse. He has a fever and is still complaining of a sore neck. We went to get him and he took a nap. #momfail #sorrybuddy He woke up Saturday morning ready to go to the hotel. I had no idea what was wrong with him, but this was the second time this year that he’s had a mystery fever with no real symptoms.
We have a fun weekend getting yard work done, and spending lots of time outside (hopefully…it’s supposed to be in the 90s!). My favorite thing to do every year is to spray the yard with some backyard bug spray. It makes being outside a little more bearable and a lot less worrying about bugs. We hate bugs!
