Five on Friday

We made it through another week, and I am so glad it's Friday!!! 

Here are my five for the week-


Last Saturday we went to Addi's birthday party.  It was supposed to be the weekend of the ice storm in December, but needless to say it didn't happen. We got to the party after the swimming was over but just in time for cake. Despite the five year age gap, I hope J and Addi are friends as they grow up.  Addi is a sweetie!!!  I can't believe she is seven years old!!!


Our children's minister, Emily, had a party for her two year old nephew, Lincoln, who was in town last weekend.  Since there are so many little boys about that age at our church, she invited some of us to help them celebrate at Babe's after church.  A lady at our church makes decorated cakes, so Emily had Minion cupcakes made.  They were so cute!!! Too bad J didn't enjoy them at all. ;)

J's first day of Mothers Day Out was Monday.  I had been dreading the day the whole week.  I know in my head it would be good for him, but I still didn't really want to take him.  So on Monday morning, I got him to his class at Tate Tots around 8:45.  Thankfully, he did great!!! Better than I did!!  He didn't realize what was going on, and I was told he didn't cry when I left.  Unlike me, I cried in the director's office after I left him.  His day went GREAT!!! He even took a one hour nap on his nap mat.  Complete shocker for me!!!   I thought for sure he would be thinking, "You want me to sleep on the floor?"  When I went to pick him up at 2:30, he burst into tears as soon as he saw me.  It was the sweetest thing!!!  I think he realized he had missed his mama.  My only worry now is that when I take him again next week, he really will cry because he will know when we get to his classroom that I am leaving him.  I guess we will cross that bridge in two Mondays.

It has been so pretty here the last few afternoons.  This afternoon we played outside for about an hour before Daddy got home.  Love this boy!!!
I am so glad it is Friday.  Because of testing at my school this week, I had to work every day.  While I only worked all day Tuesday and Thursday, it still made for a looooog week.  It is good to have a four day weekend.  Thank you MLK!!!
Have a great weekend!!!


  1. Such sweet pics of your precious family...especially the last one! Happy weekend! xx

  2. Isn't it incredible how they will take a nap on their nap mat? I was convinced mine wouldn't do it, but I guess peer pressure is very persuasive! I hope Mother's Day Out is going very well for him!
