while I waited...week 14

While I'm Waiting...while I waited week 14
It's always fun to look back on our week.  Just when I think, "we didn't do much last week" I'm reminded there was a book fair, basketball practice quickly followed by dance practice, more dance, dealt with yuckies, laid more sod, played more Go Fish, received a new book, handed out Aggie rings, squeezed in a date night, went to a dance competition, played a soccer game, went to a birthday party, went to an Aggie baseball game, and finished up the week with a Star Wars movie!  Phew!  That's just a little of what we did while I waited...  But here's what I enjoy the most - the pictures!!!

 Maggie started out the week with more pouting.  I guess the trip to the dog park only perked her up for a little bit!  Hang in there, sweet girl!  Only two more weeks before you can get in the backyard again!

 On Monday morning, Kenya and I worked the book fair at the middle school.  We carpool each morning but hardly ever see each other.  It was fun spending a couple of hours catching up.  The best part?  When our boys stopped by for a visit!

 For the next few Mondays, Holden is attending a basketball clinic after school.  She has to do a quick outfit change to get to dance practice!  This girl is growing up so fast!

 But thankfully I still have Little Bit who loves to hold my hand any chance she gets!

 All smiles and ready for dance class!

 I love a good shadow picture - except this one makes her look so big!!! #insertsadmamaface

 She loves greeting the Bigs when they get off the bus - except when they hand her stuff to carry home!

 I posted this pic on Instagram on Wednesday for a little pep talk.  Why?

 Because sweet Hope woke up sick and I really, really don't like the yuckies!

 Mike came home later that afternoon to finish laying sod in the backyard.  It was an early dismissal day so Holden was able to help!

 And Colby too!

 Thursday morning and this girl was feeling lots better! #thankyouJesus

 Friday we got some happy mail when we received Melanie Redd's new book How to Win Your Child's Heart for Life.  Hope was cracking me up - she was getting all excited because there were sight words that she recognized and she thought she was truly reading the book!

The cutest lil' Aggie Ring Day volunteer I ever did see!

 Nearly 6,000 rings were handed out this past weekend.  It's an honor to be able to share this moment with so many Aggies!

 Our shift ended early so we were able to fit in a little date night!  Hope wanted a hot dog so we made a quick trip through the Sonic drive-thru and then headed to Cafe Eccell.  Their strawberry tarts are ah-may-zing!

 Mike and Colby were up and out of the house by 5am on Saturday morning to head to a dance competition.  Colby captured this sunrise and texted it to me!

 Meanwhile, this little girl was tearing up the soccer field!  Just look at that smile!

 She scored TWO goals and was super excited!

 And so were her teammates!  This might be one of my most favorite pics!!!

We wrapped up our Saturday with a birthday party for Hope's friend, Beckett.  They loved playing on this American Ninja Warrior obstacle course!

Mike was an absolute sweetheart today and took the kiddos to the Aggie baseball game so I could get some stuff done around the house.

Big brother had to come to Hope's rescue when her sister ran off and left her.  Holden came back but I can tell from the look on Hope's face, she was completely unimpressed!

We wrapped up Sunday night with a Star Wars movie.  Holden is always joking that Mini is Darth Vader and Maggie is Luke Skywalker.  She draped Maggie with a blanket and wanted me to document the cuteness.  Sadly, I'm certain only Holden thought this was cute! ;)

I'm so glad you stopped by!  Have an extraordinary week!

Gig 'em and God bless!

  1. Your kids are adorable! You certainly have been busy. Our weeks tend to go exactly the same running from one sports activity to another - you think you have't done much but in reality you haven't stopped.

    1. Haha - I don't you would miss that much! I feel bad since my recaps are lots of the same thing over and over! ;) Kudos to you for doing this for a second year! These posts take a bit of time to put together!

  7. It's fun to see what you've been up to during the week. Busy time for you (even if you didn't think so at first). I think my favorite picture is of your daughter in your dance outfit. She is so cute. (ALL of your kids are cute!)

    And, I "see" the warmth in your pictures. I envy that. In Utah, we're still chilly. I'm so looking forward to warm weather!

    1. There's just something about little ones dressed in dance leotards, huh? I find myself taking a picture of her almost every week on the way to dance! :) And, yes, the gradual warming has started and I am definitely not complaining! I like hot weather and the winter tends to bring me down. Bring on all the warm weather! I'll send a little warmth your way! :)
