Life lately has been all about hula hooping, the number 100, books and dates. It’s been a random week friends :).
Last week, Kensington participated in her school’s variety show with Ebby Lee and Molly. These three first graders hula hooped in front of the entire school and their families. Here’s the deal…Kensington is very shy, so when she said she wanted to try out for the variety show, we were very encouraging but also very surprised. This was completely out of character for her…and we were so proud!! This was last Thursday at dress rehearsal.
Three cheers for Friday. Okay, two cheers and one “why are we up so early?” for Friday!
Friday night at the variety show. Woohoo!! These girls did an amazing job!!
Post show glow!
On Saturday morning, the girls watched Andrew coach and Smith play basketball.
After the game, we went to our town square for lunch. I tried to get a good picture of my oldest two…
This sums them up.
After lunch, we drove over to Papa Jay and Lovie’s house for some car driving. That’s Kensington in the back with the blanket over her head. She was a bride and that’s her veil :).
We went to Papa Jay and Lovie’s town next for dinner. As we were walking, K asked if we’d take her picture…
…and then Smith asked for a picture with me. Oh Smith, please don’t grow up. I just love how sweet you are right now!
After church on Sunday, both kids had little projects to celebrate their 100th day of school. Kensington painted 100 polka dots on a shirt…
…and Smith counted out 100 elbow noodles.
Next, I had some help in the kitchen for a recipe I was working on. This girl loves to bake!
And then on Sunday night, it was my turn to take Smith on a date. (Remember when Andrew took Kensington on one two weeks ago?) Smith picked PF Changs for dinner, so here we are holding up our fortunes.
On Monday, my books hit shores nationwide! Woohoo! After the gym, Ashby and I met Andrew, my parents and Sean at Barnes and Noble to celebrate followed by lunch after.
And then Ashby came home and asked for a nap in my bed. How can I resist that face?! I can’t :).
This kid would sit here and work on Legos all day long if I let him. After school, we hit the park, did homework and then he worked, worked, worked the rest of the night…only pausing for dinner :).
While Smith worked on Legos, the girls worked on their “library”.
So, that’s life lately!
On my foodie blog today…it’s not a recipe, it’s a reminder…
…to make Heart Shaped Rice Krispies Treats :).
Enjoy your Thursday!
