I hope you’re having the best week! Here’s a little look at life lately around here…
Grocery shopping with my crew. Our store offers little carts and typically, I shop when it’s just Ashby and me (and the other two are at school), but now that it’s summer, we all four shop together…and everyone wants their own cart. That being said, they do a pretty good job! My rule is that the first time you bump someone, you lose your cart…so that keeps them from ramming into each other (past experience has taught me that this rule is necessary…). They are sticklers about having equal groceries in each cart. No one wants to have less than the others…sigh. Love these three :).
The pool + popsicles + Narci’s kids = a very good day!
That moment when you realize you’re raising someone’s mama. Kensington is all about babies these days. I’m already so aware that one day, she’s going to be someone’s mama…so I better do a good job and set a great example for her.
Sunday night at the pool with the McAnallys is one of our favorite things to do! These two are such a mess ;).
Sweet girls! They just play together so well! I love that Ashby and Griffin have each other (and they’re happy that we buy them Dibs…).
So, I guess the real question is…where do I put my stuff?
The answer…on top of them. #momproblems
Sheaffer dropped Smith off after a play date and I texted her this picture about 30 minutes later…this is the sign of a great play date :). Smith loves playing at Sheaffer’s house!
Speaking of raising mamas…this one here is already in mama mode too :).
My mom is always talking about “quiet blessings”. She says those are the accidental little moments in life when you’re blessed by something simple and something unexpected. This week, I had my own little quiet blessing. We were walking around our town square when it started raining, so we ducked into this little restaurant and I drank coffee and read while they colored (thankfully, I had markers in my purse!). We were waiting for my mom to meet us for lunch, so we sat here for 30 minutes while it rained outside and just enjoyed the quietness of the morning. I looked up from my book and coffee and realized that I was having a quiet blessing.
I love it when they sit up on the window seat and talk to me while I cook. I pray that when they’re older, they still do the same.
And then this was my view right before dinner. It was raining really hard outside and the three of them were putting puzzles together. Now…here’s the thing…they argue, fuss, fight, push, scream, cry, yell and mess with each other constantly…but I’m not taking pictures then…I’m refereeing ;). Some days are peaceful and some days are stressful…but I’m blessed on both days because God gave me these kiddos.
