I have a lot of stuff rolling around in my head this week. Some of it I can’t share (because I like my job and don’t want to lose it). Some of it is just not worth sharing because it doesn’t add anything to the discussion. At least not in the form it is in now. How about an update instead?
- Cady had a great week at school. She loved her teacher and she made a new friend. She also told me yesterday morning, “Mom there is a girl in my class that everyone wants to be friends with because she is popular, but she is really mean. I don’t want to be friends with her.” Fingers crossed that she is finally learning that some people are just not worth the trouble, and popularity is not all it is cracked up to be.
- James fell off the slide at school yesterday. The teachers told me he was trying to crawl off the top. He told me, “nu-unh, they are lyin’.” However it happened he has a scratch on his forehead, a cut on his ear, and a big knot on his head.
- David is gearing up for hunting season. He goes out to the club almost every weekend to either work on his stand or set up his feeder or do who knows what. It is kind of funny to watch because he’s never really been into that kind of thing.
A Photo Just Because:
A couple of Sundays ago David and Cady went out on some secret errand (to get my birthday present). James and I took the time to back cookies. I think is favorite part is “kissing” the bowl.

Stuff I Did This Week:
Monday Cady went back to school, and once again my heart broke a little. Tuesday I shared with you the store Jodi and I love to hate. Wednesday I told you about my new favorite pants, and yesterday I gave you a simple tutorial for making button barrettes at home. I was also featured in this Care.com interview series with tips on teaching kids manners. I would love it if you would go check it out.
Some Great Stuff I Read:
I’m kind of behind in my reading, which explains why the first post I want to share is from August 18th. Oops.
- I love Maggie. I just do, and this post she wrote about surrendering ourselves is so beautiful and real. If you aren’t reading her then start.
- I heard about Smacksy at BlogHer in 2011. I’ve been reading her fun stories about Bob since then. The last week or so she has been posting more in depth things, and this post about her neighbor is so beautiful, and describes perfectly how a neighbor can become a friend and a friend can become family.
- I think she had this in a post, but I can’t remember. Anyway, this video of Mama Kat’s kids at the zoo waiving at a beaver is one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen.
