#1. I did not fail my son in the "football homecoming poster-why do parents do this to themselves- mania" this year. I had a banner made (a month ahead of time even). Boo yah! May I just say that this accomplishment is right up there with passing Calculus?
#2. I now completely understand why flooring companies wanted to charge 5 semesters of college tuition to do our floor project. It was nutso. A wildly disruptive DIY to tackle with four small children. But. BUT! The last coat of polyurethane is drying as I type, and I am in. love. with. the. floor. Some day soon we can bring our refrigerator back inside and I won't have to walk out into the garage to get my milk and eggs. It's the little things.
#3. My buddy. We've been passing lots of time together. Books. Legos. Cars. We are really good at phone pictures. Here is our best "BORED" look (we didn't have to try hard)
And also, "WEIRDO GUY" (always his idea :)
#4. The kindergarten field trip. Again to pumpkin patch. My sweet sweet girl wanted to hold my hand the whole time. She didn't talk in any decibel lower than a shout, and she was excited about everything.
I love her enthusiasm.
