35 Y/O wife to Tim and mom to Emma,Noah,Caleb, Stella and 2 babies in Heaven.Trying to walk in the path of the Lord and carrying my family with me. I love our 1902 home we purchased more 10 years ago. It is constantly evolving and goes through whatever changes my little heart desires. I love vintage treasures and I'm always on the hunt for them! My hope is that this blog will be a constant scrapbook for my family and home,a place to make new friends and just somewhere to lay out my thoughts,even if they aren't beautiful or inspiring.

Hello crazy,busy week!!

Exciting news! We got a new car! I'm not sure why I'm excited by this. Actually I don't think I like this. Tim bought this new car so he doesn't have to take the van to work. Why? Because he wants me to to drive it. *Gulp* A friend asked when I plan on learning to do this. My reply? When I get a minute! I feel this week is merely a precursor to the year ahead of me.

Monday-nothing going on except that's when he got the new car. I still need to take a picture while it's still daylight. It's already starting to get dark around 7:30 now.

Last night I went to the first PTO meeting of the year. I always manage to make it to the first one. After that I'm lucky to get one more in. With it being Em's last year and realizing I still have another 11 years up there I'm diving in head first. I feel so sad knowing some of my mom friends 'graduate' right along with their kid. I volunteer to work the Spring event and be the chair for Donations. This should be easy as I've been quite successful in the past soliciting donations for RFL. I was also happy to see a lot of new parents up there who want to be involved in their child's school. I made some yummy pumpkin muffins too. I found the recipe on Pinterest. Naturally :)

 Tonight is the first night of Drama Club!! I swear Em lives for this! She's really hoping for a bigger part as it's her last year. When she goes up to the high school next year she will be a tiny fish in the big pond of the annual high school musical. I can't wait to find out what they will be performing this year.

 Tomorrow evening is the Annual Covered Dish dinner. We go every year(missed it last year because I was very pregnant and very miserable).It's a great way to connect with the other families and say hello to the kids old teacher. I'll be making a strawberry salad this year. I'm a little worried as tomorrow's high temp is supposed to be 58* (Which I would welcome any other time.)

Friday Night Lights!! The first home game and we are already 2-0! Em's BFF already has her NHS sweatshirt. I really need to get Emma one. I'm going to have a high schooler next year.Ahhh!! (Anywhere else she'd be in Middle school now but our district is a bit funny) It's supposed to be a chilly night. PERFECT for some football!!

Saturday is back to work for me. I have not been there in about a month. I'm still thinking about just quitting. What to do??? I'm not complaining though. I love my kids and I love how they keep me busy!
