Hello! Did you have a good week? We’re back from Andrew’s high school band trip to Walt Disney World and are settling into our regular routine. Funny how easy it is to slip into vacation mode and how hard it is to slip out of it!
I’m so happy we tagged along on the trip. The weather was wonderful (low 80s) and the high schoolers put on fantastic shows at Epcot and Downtown Disney. The best part is that our younger kids are old enough now so we could all play and go on most of the rides together and there was hardly any fussing! I really felt for the parents of little ones who had Had Enough. We’ve all been there.
We took lots of photos, but this one of Will and me is one of my favorites. We were on the Kali River Rapids ride at Animal Kingdom, happily chatting away with the mom, grandma, and daughter sharing our raft. The mom happened to catch the very moment that Will and I got soaked. And I mean soaked. As we got off the ride, she was kind enough to get my phone number so she could text me the photo. Technology can be pretty awesome.
While I catch up on laundry (and sleep), here are some links I thought you might enjoy:
+ How to put a toddler to bed in 100 Easy Steps. Sounds about right.
+ Speaking of fitness, Dani at Fitness Food and Style always has fun monthly challenges to get you motivated. Lots of great recipes, too.
+ The most awkward things that ever happened. Some of these made me laugh out loud.
+ Will is heading to the state championship for the National Geographic Bee next week! To celebrate, we’ve been playing this cool game even more than usual.
Do you have any plans for the weekend? We’re celebrating the birthday of one of my lovely goddaughters (bonus: we get to meet their new puppy) and I hear it’s supposed to reach 60 degrees this weekend. Fingers crossed!
