weekly roundup

What a whirlwind of a week.

I started a blog.

I seen a therapist for the first time.

I also started a ten day little things challenge. And it was a challenge. I didn’t have any problem actually slowing down to notice and enjoy those little things and even snap some pictures too. But, I did have some problems posting and writing about them everyday. I got behind and had a hard time catching up.

And then I had a ah ha moment and had a brilliant idea. I would can the ten day challenge idea and do a weekly (on Sundays) roundup of all the little things I stopped and enjoyed. Also share what we’ve up to and all the pictures from the week. I think it would be much easier to keep up on this way. Plus it will give all of you who decide to stick around a chance to see whats been happening in our lives on a weekly basis! Fun right? I thought so!

Like I said this week has been a bit crazy, but all the little things made it a bit easier to deal with.

Speaking of little things.

This morning I actually got to get out of the house. Wait for it… Alone!!!

Seems like such a little thing to most I’m sure. But for me. It was huge. And so very nice. I went to the dollar store and restocked up on some essentials. And then grocery shopping. It was a nice morning to myself.

Last night the hubby and I actually watched a whole movie together, just us. The kids were in bed at a decent time and I didn’t fall asleep. It was a nice quiet Saturday night. Just what we needed.

The kids had a pretty good week too. They played dress up on Thursday and had a ball. Neither one of them have showed much interest in the past so it was a nice that they enjoyed it. Savanna, especially. She ended up wearing a fireman jacket with a pirate hat on and off all day. She would walk around making siren noises.

Friday they got to play with play dough. Which happens a lot around here. They will sit for ever and play! Friday evening we had a nice family evening at the park.

The weather has been hot and is getting hotter this week. Of course we had some pool time in the backyard. That little $20 pool from Wal Mart has been such a life saver this summer. They absolutely love it and it is a nice energy buster!

Enjoy the pictures from this week. I can’t wait to share what happens this week.

Don’t forget to stop and enjoy the little things.

He never did make it to the top, but I was proud of him for trying. He said he is going to try again next time.

  1. I always fall asleep when my husband and I are watching a movie and I hate it. Especially when he doesn’t realize I’m sleeping and finishes it without me. haha Oh well, it’s just part of being a momma! Thanks for joining the Family Joy Link Party!
