It's Friday!

It's been a busy week!
Back to School week has proven once again that
my children thrive on a schedule.
I love it.

1. I am thoroughly enjoying my new domestic engineer status cooking a hot breakfast for the kids every morning...I'm feeling pretty domestic, my friends. I have been able to get so much accomplished during the day, so that when all 3...or 4...boys walk through the door, I am prepared for the circus.

2.  I don't think I mentioned this before, but all 3 of my boys are riding the bus to and from school with their friends in the neighborhood, and they LOVE it. The bus driver actually stops in front of our house to drop them off and pick them up. Does it get any better? Nope.

3. I was cleaning out the boys' drawers today, and I found this when I opened Preston's shorts drawer:

WTH? What is all of this? All of this was under his shorts. Why is it in his shorts drawer? The only thing I could come up with was that he must be hiding it from his brothers. They all tend to do that because they are so afraid one of them will take their stuff. So...I cleaned out the old shorts and moved them to Carter's drawer, and asked myself, "Do I leave this mess of amphibious rubber in here?" and I decided...yes:

4. It is Friday, and Ryan and I have a weekend alone, together, no children, no baseball practices...heaven. I'm meeting him in just a few short hours for happy hour to kick off the weekend.

5. Carter told me yesterday that he wants to be a librarian when he grows up. I have no idea where that came from. Trysten told me he wants to be a farmer so that he can "ride horses". Do farmers really ride horses?

6. "The Teenager" keeps telling us about "hot girls" he has met at school. Great. I keep reminding him he's there for an education. Lord help us all during the next few years with this child.

7. Speaking of Austin, he will be old enough for a driver's permit in just over a year. WTH! We don't even  feel fully comfortable with him on the golf cart yet much less a car. Scary.

6. Did you know it's only 5 days until I put out my fall decor? Just sayin.

Have a fabulous weekend,
my blogland friends!!

Preston was definitely hiding those from his brothers. Good decision on letting them stay.

I'm a firm believer in teaching kids to drive early. I hate it when parents get so freaked out about their kid driving and don't let them do it until they're 16. That's just asking for a nervous and probably unsafe driver. My dad taught me to drive when I was 12. Just around parking lots. Then when I got good at that, he'd let me go on some neighborhood streets. By the time I was ready to get my license (I got a hardship at 15), I was a pro. I've had 2 tickets in my whole life and never had a wreck. (KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCK ON WOOD!!!)
So, there's my 2 cents on driving and teenagers :)

Have a great weekend with your Hubby!!

Love that Preston had all his rubber friends hidden in his drawer, too cute! Have a great weekend with the hubby!

That rubber ball and stuff collection is hilarious and totally something that would be going down in my house.

So glad you like being a domestic goddess. And you are so lucky to be able to do it without kids at home. Bonus.

you and your fall decor....so cute! I would leave the stuff too, we are starting to experience that-the hiding of shit from the others. At this point I buy 2 of everything to help with that. I would love to feel domistic, but so hard chasing little ones all day! enjoy your time

That is so cute, hiding his toys in the shorts drawer. I think everyone is trying to make me jealous, first Sass and now you with your domestic godessness. Sounds heavenly. I think you have entered a dream, the bus driver picking up and dropping off at the front door. Heaven indeed. Have a great weekend alone.
