i just ordered all the supplies for josiah to make his planet for school (what would i do without amazon)…he chose uranus i think and thankfully it only has one ring. so hopefully we’ll get it created. the only hitch is it needs to be able to hang- alas. side note: i sooo remember this project when i was teaching first grade.
weighed the boys today…49 and 51 pounds respectively… but they are a perfect example of muscle weighing more- bc dang…that 2 pound difference feels like ten pounds. cra crazy. regan is sooooo solid.
my parents are coming this weekend- YAY! it’s bizarre that i texted them today, the week of…to ask them when they are actually arriving… no flight itineraries, confirmation codes and 4+ month pre-planning…just, we’ll be there saturday evening. so fun!
i’m making an old classic from my childhood tonight- shipwreck chicken. except i couldn’t find bone-in chicken anywhere…so lame. i had to ask my mom for a work around.
speaking of cooking- i’m trying to follow more recipes and last week tried two different new dinners…both containing mushrooms. huge steps for me, considering i don’t like mushrooms. but i think i might be working off that hatred. it’ll take me awhile tho…
schools here have spring pictures? is that a thing? just a cali thing? i’ve never heard of it. either way, i’m sticking to the fall photos from last fall bc they were darn cute.
the Voice has begun again and i just love alicia keys. i only watch for the judges. i mean, the music is great, but seriously, the judges make the show.
my husband goes back to work any day now- i can’t remember if i mentioned on the blog here that he got a job!! hooray!!! but still no official start date. we are all anxiously waiting tho. i think it’ll be good for us…but i know i’m gonna miss him like crazy. Its been almost 8 months of unemployment. wow.
it rains A LOT here in redding. its supposed to be the second sunniest place in the country, so i’m waiting patiently (or not so much these days) for that part. also hoping my dad has mapped out some adventures for us next week…so we can skip school and go play in nature.
family game night is finally starting to happen (minus maya-she’s a train wreck with organized things like this) and the boys love junior monopoly…we found a new one to add to the rotation- Charades Junior- which is awesome bc it has pictures for non-readers, such as regan. if you have any suggestions, send them my way!
i had to get rid of all my spray paint collection when we moved…but i am finally in possession of a new bottle…fresh white matte…for a little project. i can’t wait to spray. i’m so weird.
staring a to-do list and the most menacing of all is ‘potty train maya’…i have a feeling this will probably be relatively easy but i just can’t get myself to pull the trigger. she’s soooo ready. why am i so weary?
