Atticus was plumb tuckered after church today. This is what he looked like when I went to wake him up for Community Group. (He's in his sister's bed.)

Paul stayed home today (yay!) and we rested, did some things around the house, and then went for a ride out to "the land" that we may or may not ever actually get to purchase. The sale of our home has not happened yet. But we are about to step up our game.

We met friends at Jump!Zone and then had a picnic with them at a nearby park.
And THEN Daddy took Gabriel out for a special baseball game experience because the Razorbacks were in town!
Paul's comment on Facebook when he posted this picture was "What Mommy doesn't know..." :)

Ran to Kroger today. (That's a big deal for me. Because grocery shopping + 4 small children = Not a lot of fun for Mommy) Atticus was crying about having to sit in the buggy from the moment we entered the store. Hooray for the kind Kroger worker who, probably mostly for his own sanity, brought Atticus and then the other three each a balloon. With nifty magnetic weights attached them, too! All that AND free cookie samples. I cringe letting them eat those hydrogenated fat-laden cookies they bake there, but man...I must admit how deeply thankful I am for the five minutes of pure silence I get out of them (while they're munching).
I say all that to say...they literally played with their Kroger balloons all day today. Even up until bedtime!

Today we had homemade strawberry ice cream for breakfast!! (It's healthy ice cream. But it's also YUMM-OH!)
And then just to keep things lively and fun, we had lunch UNDER the table! The kids loved it. And I didn't have to clean the table afterwards!

A sweet friend from church came over tonight around dinner time and stayed with the kiddos while Paul and I did some necessary fix-up-your-home shopping and had dinner. I was most thankful for the quiet while I figured out what I was going to put on my front door. I'm not much of a wreath person--as in I've never had anything but Christmas ones. Nor am I good at envisioning what I like/want/should put on a wreath. It still took me forEVer to settle on something, but it was just nice to be ABLE to take forever. And I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out.

We had breakfast out this morning. Because WE had to be out and about all morning. And because Paul had promised the kids. Which was just fine with me. I had smoked Gouda grits. And, y'all. Oh, my word. My description to Paul: "This is just a bowl full of amazingly delicious refined goodness." So bad, but so gooooood. (No pic. You can imagine why.)
And then it was to the Home Depot we went. To ride the lawn mowers, it seems. At one point, all four kids were on mowers right in a row! Missed that photo op.
We did quite a bit of looking around. And tried not to lose any children. Even though they sometimes make that difficult for us...
Well, like I said, we are getting the house really ready to sell this time, so this week is probably going to be pretty crazy as we run all over town getting this-and-that and then try to complete the projects. Somehow. Wonder when I'll ever get around to these taxes. Oh, dear...
The rest of Sara's peeps probably already have theirs done, just like they already have their weeks posted. I'm such a slacker.
