The Weekend in Review

Weekends are always interesting here. Friday evening Sam worked late so I picked up one of my daughter's friends, we rented movies, and spent the evening in. I'd promised the girls I'd take them shopping so we headed out yesterday (all day!) and bagged us some serious bargains. Me loves a good bargain hunt. (It's also nice to note that 8 hours of shopping will put the girls to sleep in the back seat on the way home. I can out shop a tween! There's a feat to be proud of.)

Cake and ice cream were waiting for us at home. And Luke's card.


But all fun things must be balanced with the not-fun. Micah is fevery and has a terrible cold so I'm home from church with him today while the others will be there all afternoon. Why? Because it's the annual FasCar race. Grab your best Hot Wheels and sit back to see who's is the fastest as they have timed races down the track. It's really a fun time, and the very first year we hosted it Luke won a trophy. So I'll be checking in with Sam every now and then to see how our cars, I mean kids, are doing.
