A birthday (or two), some dancing, and a broken shoe…

September 28, 2012

It’s Friday and it’s more than welcome… today, there is nothing on my calendar, no alerts, no appointments, nothing.

I get to pick the kids up at normal dismissal time to start our weekend together.

No weekend plans either, for any of us… just time spend at home. I may finally do some yard work. I’m hoping my green thumb will temporarily make an appearance!!! 🙂

The week started with a birthday, actually two… first my MIL and the next day our little angel.

She’s 4 now. Not so little anymore and she lets us know it.

She has opinions about everything, from wearing her new outfit, to posing for the camera, to what’s for dinner.

Oh yes, a blonde, blue eyed little angel – with a little devil lurking inside!

And we love every part of her.

Don’t you just love those shorts?

Middle had her last dance performance at the last middle school home game for now.

She’s sad.

She wants to keep going and we are hoping that practice will continue and the school approves the team for basketball season.

If not, Spring isn’t that far away and there’ll be plenty more dancing to do…

I love watching her, the big smile on her face, the enthusiasm in her movements, the sheer joy she exhibits when she dances.

It brings back memories…

As for me, I’ll get to do some shoe shopping this weekend.

For myself.

Seems that my shoes are on strike and in the last few weeks three pairs of my “good” flip flops broke.

The last pair broke yesterday, at the school, walking to the field for Middle’s performance.

Have you ever shuffled along in a broken flip flop? Yeah, it’s not fun.

But, as always, looking at the positive side of things… new shoes, for me, yippie!!! 😉

I just realized, I need to take a picture of my boy with his new trumpet.

He’s loving it and enjoying being a trumpeter in the school band.

I can’t wait for his first performance…

Linking up with My Time as Mom and MamaTrack!!!
