1. Go check out this video that Mike shot of Lucas on Wednesday night while we were at the park. We took the girls to a nice open field to practice some soccer skills and when they were finished, Lucas took over. That boy LOVES to kick a ball.
2. Monday we were driving home after running a few errands when traffic came to a halt. I thought maybe there had been an accident, but as we creeped ahead slowly, it became evident that all the cars had stopped so that a little turtle could finish crossing the road. How cool is that? And he (or she?) made it across! Of course my girls thought it was a Mama turtle trying to get home to her babies.
3. I am officially ready for fall. I'm going to bake some pumpkin bread today in hopes that the smells of cinnamon and allspice waft out my window and enourage the leaves to start changing around here! We don't get the pretty fall foliage until later in the season since it stays warm here for so long.
4. We have started a new tradition on Friday nights called "Family Movie Night" (not the most creative name, but it works!). Now that the girls are in school, they have come to realize the importance of Friday night. So to make it special and relaxing, we instituted Family Movie Night. The following things must occur: 1.) Homemade Pizza for dinner 2.) A pallet on the floor big enough for everyone 3.) A big bowl of popcorn and 4.) A kid-friendly movie! Tonight's selection is Furry Vengence. Mike picked it out and I sort of cringed because I know that the silly factor is going to be off the charts. But the girls will like it, I'm sure. And if I get to snuggle up with them for an hour and a half, I'm good with that.
What do you all have planned this weekend?
