It's been a crazy week. I've spent most of the week giving the house a good cleaning. It is pretty much clean, and I'm hoping that I'll be able to maintain the cleanliness once we start homeschooling tomorrow. Yep -- FIRST grade starts tomorrow at Childress Academy! I'm excited, and I think Caleb is, too. :)
We spent a little bit of time outside today, and I thought I'd take a picture of the garden. Granted, I don't think this is the "best" shot, but it works. I am soooo excited to see the sunflowers each day. It's amazing how they are following the sun, and the flowers haven't even bloomed yet. I cannot wait to see them once they finally bloom. So far, everything it doing okay in the garden. Like I mentioned, I have learned a lot that I'll do differently next year. But -- for now...we're happy and pleased with our effort. It has definitely been a learning experience for sure.
I was gifted with this lovely award by two different bloggy friends. Jennifer at J. Leigh Designz and SAHM4Now at Memoires of a SAHM both gave me this award. I'm so excited to have it because I've never seen it. It is always nice getting support and love from other bloggers, and it's even better when it's a new award. So, thanks ladies!
Now, as with any award, there are some rules. The idea of this award is to pass it on to 8 people and include the following:
"These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers."
And without further ado, here are my 8 nominees for the Most Wonderful Favorite! Award:
1) Semi-Slacker Mom @ Confessions of a Semi-Slacker Mom
2) Heidi @ Wojto Beach Cottage
3) Jenny @ Zack's Gang
4) Michelle @ Feet First
5) Laura @ The Horton Family
6) Lin @ Duck and Wheel With String
7) Leslie @ Lamberts Lately -- ***she does AWESOME blog makeovers***
8) Ashley @ Ashley's Antics
So, ladies...enjoy the stardom that comes with such an elite award and re-gift it with pride. :)
As I mentioned earlier in the post, we spent a little bit of time outside. Now, let me just say...it's HOT down here in Georgia. Add the humidity, and well...it just plain SUCKS to be outside. Now, consider that I've got a super fair skinned little one, and well, it doesn't make going outside much fun. I have to make sure that the little guy has sunscreen on first. That, in itself, is not a fun task. So, we only manage about 20-30 minutes MAX at a time. I just can't stand the heat. Anyway, I did manage to get a few shots of the kiddos playing the yard. (These are out of order I think...apparently blogger is being very photo friendly these days. I couldn't even move the photos around...oh well).
