Let's see, I need to go back to a week ago Saturday. Bean was at his State Meet and did great again, cutting time and making a new record in his club for backstroke.
I was at Rae's, visiting a dear friend of hers and her adorable boy. Giddy-up had a cool science experiment to share and Mr. Smiley was unusually snuggly.
After breakfast, and checking everything going on inside, we ventured out to chase chickens.
Mr. Smiley said, "That baby, I want to hug him, but he keeps marching around."
Mr. Smiley has come a long way with Samwise and was thrilled to walk him on his leash.
We enjoyed a lot of playdough time.
Then it was press on through the week, report cards, conferences and finally, Spring Break!
Drummer Boy wanted a few more chickens and so, until Samwise is out and about more, I had him come and get mine before the hawks do.
It is ever a fun family time trying to catch chickens, lots of screaming and running too and fro of hens, roosters and Gramerlings.
Then, we were off on an adventure to a local park. It was pretty cool still, and my knee still lets me know it is there, so we took a half mile trail.
Buttercup is tree hugging, climbing girl.
Can't let Sis out do you, huh Blue Eyes.
It was big fun time. We sang lots of songs from the Okie Dokie Brothers and talked about good books and places to hike at a later date. They are also interested in one on one dates, so I need to get that on the calendar.
I came home excited to have a nap before I started cooking for Coffee Hour at church this morning. I told the Handy Man I intended to nap every day for two weeks. A happy thought!
