Fast Friday

Friday! It's felt like Friday for a couple of days now for us because the kids have fall break this week. 

Since J is in school, and most of the other neighbor kids are also in school full time, M has been needing constant companions or constant entertainment.  I love this girl! But sometimes I need to take a breather with some alone time, ya know? So I started her on a project.  I gave her a basket and told her to fill it up with rocks from around the yard. Once she has lots of rocks, her next goal will be to make sure they are all clean and dry.  Then she can paint them on another day, and hide them for other people to find them.  I'm hoping it entertains her for a while.

On the days that M does have school, V has been my errand buddy. But once we are done with errands, we get to build Lego houses until it's time to pick M up from school.  We start getting really creative with how to make the houses different every time.

V is on a big Super Why kick so his costume works perfectly for this year.

I've been able to do some run/walks lately. Running is starting to feel a little bit better every time but I'm still taking it easy.  There is still some sign of injury there and I still have muscles to strengthen before I can be fully back to running.

M turned 5 this week! One of our favorite birthday traditions is for the kids to pick what kind of cake they want. She wanted to have a pumpkin patch cake so this is what we came up with. We also don't normally do big friend birthday parties, but this year we are doing one for her, just a few days late. So I'll share more about her birthday later.

Don't forget to enter the giveaway to win the Tiger Tail, it ends on Monday!  I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Who has a race coming up?

Anyone with October birthdays?

Who else is on fall break?

  1. I don't think we get a fall break although I'd like one for sure. Both my daughter and I have October birthdays. I love it! Congrats on your injury healing and being able to walk/run!
