Beauty and the Beast

Mollee treated me to a movie tonight - how awesome is that? We have both been excited about seeing "Beauty and the Beast" since it was announced. We watched the Disney a few times this month and we saw the CCS play earlier this month - which was amazing!

We enjoyed the movie and the "Girl Time".

Lego Batman

Spring Break treat was to take the kids to see the new Lego Batman movie. As it gets harder and harder to find a movie that ALL the kids will want to watch together, I cherish these times.
And, Tavis did this after the movie...

Dieudone and Edimo

For Spring Break we had Dieudone and Edimo over for a few days. I picked them up Friday night and they stayed until I took them home Tuesday evening. Of course, we loved having them in the house. 

Dieudone seemed to jump right in to our chaos. Edimo didn't say much and was always "moving" - typically kicking a soccer ball in the front yard.

Day with the Isaacs

I had today off and was going to run some errands. Since Ruth has no car while Gary is at work, I decided to see if she and the girls wanted to go with me - last minute.

Of course, Target was on the list.
We ran a few other errands and ended up at Chik-fil-A for lunch.

Coldest Soccer Game...

I think even hours later, I am still thawing out. This was the coldest game I have sat thru as a Soccer Mom. It was about 30 degrees, with a 20 degree wind chill, and it was very windy.

I had on leggings and jeans, and four or five top layers, but none of that helped against the wind. It was crazy.
The things we do for our kids...

Daegan turns 14

Daegan is now 14. He stands taller than me and his voice is suddenly deep.

Things this week have been a little crazy, but Daegan did get to open a gift in the van after school one day. When you ask for expensive things, you only get one gift - Xbox game.
We were able to celebrate with the Caines on Sunday and Daegan just wanted ice cream, something we don't get at home. :)

And Daniel and Heather and Libs stopped by one evening with a cookie cake and gift card (yep, teenagers are getting harder to buy for).

Soccer by Moonlight

Daegan and Capps had a game in Cleveland today. Last minute, they change the Varisty and JV games, so that the Varsity played first. It was very clear that they wanted to make sure the older guys got to play before it got dark.

No lights at this field - we tried to play by moonlight, but the game was called 20 minutes early because no one could see.
We weren't too disappointed about the early ending time because we were not prepared for the cold of the evening.

Flying Solo

This week at work has been long and crazy, but totally doable, if necessary. I appreciate those that I work with because they cover for me when I have a sick kid and have to work from home and I am happy to cover for them when they are gone.

My quote this week has been "Absence makes the heart grow fonder" Young has been in Romania for a few weeks on his yearly trip. Carol went on a last minute trip to Minnesota to see an ailing grandmother. And Susan came in for an hour Monday morning, in hopes not to leave me alone, but I sent her home and she later tested positive with the flu.

These are the days you really learn to appreciate your co-works. I am missing my support staff, but I have been very thankful for Emily to come in and help as she could. Having someone cover the phones and answer the front door is a huge help.

I survived.

Not enough cords

Sometimes when you have multiple siblings, multiple devices, and not enough cords, you have to take things into your own hands...

Soccer 2017

Tonight was the first game of the season for Daegan and Capps. I loved being #soccermom again.
 Yep, I forced this picture before they could complain.

Stormy Leggings

We cancelled church tonight because they were calling for terrible storms - strong winds, rain, hail, etc. We had to make a decision early for the sake of cooking a meal or not cooking a meal. Thankfully, the storm hit just north of us and just south of us.

In the meantime, I was wearing my leggings with lightening bolts, just to be "prepared".
