Crazy (Extended) Weekend Event #8: Our special, very-much-missed out-of-town friends came to visit for the day. Such fun! It was almost like old times.
These two quietly became pals.
I got nothin'.
Saylor did her own thing much of the day. But what's new?
These two just picked up right where they left off.
These two cuddled.
These two bonded over Nemo and silkies (aka "Nah" in certain families).

My parents let us adopt their old recliner for our bedroom. The kids think it's their new toy.

Last day of ballet and guitar classes. I am one happy mama!! Not that I took pictures of these particular events. Instead, we blew off some steam after dinner with a little accessorizing...

We went to visit my aunt and uncle at their new cabin on the lake today. The kids had the best time feeding the ducks and a Canadian goose with a broken wing.

Down day. Mommy's exhausted. But we did do a little online research for homeschool. We are trying to finish up our study of Amelia Earhart and the Wright brothers. By the way, I highly recommend this book about the Wright brothers' childhood. While not the most astounding piece of "literature" you'll ever read, the story itself was captivating, both for Noah and myself. And this video was cute, too.

We remembered at ten till six that we had Noah's soccer awards program that night at 7:00!! Somehow we made it, and Noah was excited to receive a brand new soccer ball.

We got up semi-early today so we could go pick up our weekly "ration" of raw milk and pastured eggs. Then we stopped by a friend's garage sale to pick up a school desk for Noah. (Here's hoping it helps!) After that we stopped at Old Navy for a little mommy shopping (Yay me!), and then we strolled down to Petco to see if there were any dogs (purely for entertainment purposes). There were none, but they DID have these great buggies!!
Check out the little sign at the top of the pole! (It reads "Customer in Training.") Is that not the cutest?!
Now I'm looking forward to having my sweetie home with me all day on Monday!!!! National holidays rock!! You can check out the weeks of all the other "Project 365" participants at Sara's.
