I spent a long time today reorganizing our homeschool stuff--moving it from upstairs to some bookshelves downstairs and near the kitchen. I'm hoping that will help us get things a little more under control. Anyway, I found one of Noah's VERY first stories ever written.
I'll translate: One day the squirrel found a acorn. He opened the acorn and it was empty.
(Beginning, middle, and end. You can't argue with that.)

I have these great bibs. Had one for Saylor when she was a baby. (In fact, if you don't have one, get one! I'd provide a link, but I'm not entirely sure they're still available anymore. Here...just Google it: Get Messy Bib by Babylicious. Best of luck!) Gabriel and Atticus both have one. Gabe stopped wearing his long ago, but lately he's been wanting to wear his so he can look like Atticus. They both get a big kick out of looking alike.
It's also my birthday today. I was sad that Paul HAD to work today, but we did all go out for dinner. And that was fun. But I forgot to take any pictures.

We ran an errand or two before lunch, but Atticus just couldn't hang with us. It was sort of weird, because it was a little after 12:00 when we got home, and his normal nap time is more like 1:30 or so. He was sound asleep when we pulled into the garage. And then he stayed asleep as I carried him in the house and put him on my bed. So sweet. But of course, the little cat nap totally messed up his schedule.
And today was Gabriel's last day of speech therapy--at least in this particular program, with this particular, dearly-beloved therapist.
For some reason Atticus got it in his head that if he wore this hat...
and got down on all fours, he would become a dog. He traveled all around the kitchen woofing and panting...as long as the hat stayed on.

Crazy Weekend Event #2: Sent these snack bags with Noah and the boys for Noah's final soccer game, which I had to miss. His team was undefeated, by the way!!
Crazy Weekend Event #3: Dress rehearsal. Somebody's having such a good time!
Crazy Weekend Event #4: Made two huge batches of chocolate buttercream frosting for about a thousand cupcakes. And then made a couple of race cars out of cupcakes.
Crazy Weekend Event #5: Hosted a party (WHICH we were late for!) at Jump!Zone for Noah and Gabriel. Lots of friends and fun. And I actually accomplished the pull-apart cake I was hoping for. Check out the race cars!
That's all for this week, but just remember...the weekend's not over yet, as far as the blog is concerned. I am, however, DONE. Sort of. Now maybe I can finally get caught up with all the participants linked up at Sara's. (I'm so behind.) On that AND laundry...
