Rushing. Hurry. Rush. Rush. Go.
Eat. Eat. Eat!
School. Quick! Let's go.
Cousin's, Grammey's and friend's for the days. For the nights.
With a week like that, doing our Backwards Day challenge was a joy.
We had breakfast for dinner -- biscuits and gravy. Homemade. Can I say that, for me, there is something deeply satisfying about making something from scratch and seeing it transform into something pretty? Whether in the kitchen our in the craft room. I got way happy from our breakfast-for-dinner long before I took my first bite!
The two that were home wanted to sleep on the floor to end Backwards Day with a bang.
Brother came home smiling from ear to ear. He had fun. I know this to be true for that was the one repetative statement that kept coming out of his mouth accompanied by an unfading grin.
He didn't want to sleep on the floor.
After boarding all day...
I can totally understand that.
What a way to tell my kids with actions how much I love them. We had fun together. It is so much easier to just get through the day. Rush through the day... days, with those extra pieces of luggage that almost seem like figments at times. Our children. Slow down, I urge you, even if it is just from time to time, though, the more often the better. Make a moment special if not a whole day.
This weeks challenge is "Have a Fancy Dinner", inspired by none other that the expert on all things fancy herself: Fancy Nancy. (I highly recommend the book!)
or again, for those more extrovert family types, go out!
Dress up, then go out for pizza, or Chinese, or even "Oo la la, Italian"...
If anyone participates in this weeks challenge or even if you still want to do last weeks challenge this week, I'd love to see pictures! I'll have to figure out how to make it so you can upload your pics to these posts.
So go on now... make some memories!
