Always with the personality.

I can't stop laughing at Callum's class pic - specifically - my kiddo's expression!

Wednesday Mornings

On Wednesdays, everyone starts school at the same time (the other days the start times are split between "early" and "late" sessions). I often drive the boys to school on Wednesday for no other reason than to hang out together a bit longer. But a couple of weeks ago they took the bus and I happened to snap this fun pic of them with their two other friends/neighbors, who are assigned to our same bus stop.

Without prompting, the boys had lined themselves up in order of grade, or age. Right to left, we have a Kindergartner, 1st grader, 2nd grader, and 3rd grader. :)

Mademoiselle Colette

Logan was feeling much better today but I decided to keep him home from school just to be safe. He was getting a little stir crazy though, so we headed to town for a nice lunch and then stopped by this hoppin' French pastry shop for a dessert to take home. All of their sweets look divine! Can't wait to try them out. :)

Flipper Tuesday

Logan has been sick with some nasty stomach bug this week so I've been a little bit preoccupied, but I did manage to capture this cute pic of Callum, showing off his flippers which he got to use in his (private since Logan was ill) lesson on Tuesday. He totally loved them as you can see from his big smile. :)

Callumism of the middle of the night

Mama, my bed is warm, but not warm enough. Can I sleep in your bed?

Happy Valentine's Day!

I tried making a red heart pancake but boy was that a flop. Thank goodness my boys scarf up pancakes regardless of their shape (or color)! ;-)

Happy Valentine's Day to all!

A special Valentine

Callum made Jon and I a Valentine at school and they mailed it to us. Just got the surprise today. ❤️

A lazy Saturday morning

Jon left when it was still dark outside to catch a flight. The rest of us are being super lazy today. :) Callum helped me make some pancakes this morning - haven't had any in awhile - yum!

Valentine's Parties Galore!

Dang, I don't think I've blogged much recently but we are still humming along at a fast clip, trying to gulp a breath of air when we can, before we dunk our heads down again and plow forward. 'Tis our life!

In between running to kid-related functions, I've still been overseeing several projects at the house - lingering work that still needed to get done to call our remodel complete. (Is a remodel ever really complete though?!?) :) I'm happy to report we passed our final inspection the other day - which is fantastic news, because it's just in time for me to kick off another remodel project (phase 2?) soon! Mwahahhahahaa

Anyway, today was a day of Valentine celebration at school. The lead parent in Callum's class had a last minute emergency this morning - we live in the same neighborhood so I swung by her house a little early to pick up supplies and took over lead parent duties for the day. Happy to report the party was a big success and the kids had a blast. Here's a quick snapshot of Callum checking out the last of his Valentines before I took off. :)

I quickly ran home to check on progress of another home project (we had a new garage door installed - yippee!) before heading back to school again. This time, to volunteer in Logan's classroom party. We had 5 different activity stations going which was pretty insane, plus a huge spread of snacks and sweets for the kids to load up on before we left. :) Logan snuck off to recess before I could hug him goodbye, so I wasn't able to snap a pic of him but I could tell he was having a great time.

Coffee break with my cutie pie

He's rubbing his hands together telling me he's evil.

But seriously?! With that face?? 😇😍
