Saturday around here started off with morning time outside because the weather was just so nice.
We are loving these doors to the back patio- despite the scratched panes by previous owners pets (possibly helps to blend all the little fingerprints happening).
Brandon wanted to send a letter to a friend and he used this cute (and very helpful) picture speller for some of the words.
Beverleigh has been experimenting with new foods lately that she now warrants her own plate. #hello8and1/2months
The weekends are often for haircuts- aka "home cuts" as my friend Jennifer calls them.
I spent the afternoon styling a space that is now for planning and Bible journaling as well as the occasional "thank you note" and "a note to say hello" writing. I've officially dubbed this space "the correspondence desk" (spoken with my best British accent).
Turns out, I have moved my scrapbooking stuff to another area just around the corner.
The kids busted out their "bubble gloves" for a fun time in our grassy-ish backyard.
Then I zipped over to the grocery store with Brandon to grab items for a "Mother's Day Breakfast".
Saturday ended with more outside time and then prep for Sunday morning church.
Sunday Morning breakfast was smoked salmon and/or raspberry jam on cream cheese smeared bagels.
After Breakfast we visited a church and then came home for lunch and naps. Yes please.
Besides Bagels and coffee, the highlight of my day was Brandon asking me to play basketball with him.
He and Simon are currently big fans of
shooting all the hoops and dribbling tricks so of course I said "yes".
Our good game of "PIG" was followed followed with mugs of ice cream-and the Mother's Day special was Blue Bell Banana Pudding.
Side note: I love that there's also a bag of stevia on the counter (insert eye roll).
We ended the day with an episode of "Duck Dynasty" + my heart full from a fun day spent with these kiddos who made me a Mom.
I definitely found myself snapping way less photos over the weekend and I am totally okay with that. Super grateful for the opportunity to blog our week here in our new space.
My pictures our printed and I am putting them in the album over the next couple of days- so excited about that part!
