Okay, has this week not just been perfect weather-wise? Last night Mark and I sat in the swing until way after dark and watched the kids play. It was one of my favorite nights ever. I love spring (except for the pollen), but I can live with the pollen in order to experience spring.

It's Friday and that means a Cub Scout campout? Apparently these Scouts take their camping very seriously cause they do it a lot. Fortunately, I have a Sweet Hubby who loves to camp and all I have to do is drop them off. So it will just be James, Abbie, and me tonight. I fully intend to do the ironing I did not do last Friday night. Ya'll I was so tired last Friday night. I got the kiddos in bed, got my book, and was in the bed by 8:45 pm. You can just call me GrandMamaHen.

Do any of you read Lizzie from A Dusty Frame? I have been encouraged by her blog. Her family has really been through a lot and she is honest with her struggles. But, she always leads us back to Jesus. She is the real deal and I am so glad I found her blog. Lizzie and her sister have started a new blog about selling on Etsy and Ebay. It is very informative and might be a great way for a stay-at-home mom to make a little extra money. Even if you don't want to make a career of it you will still receive lots of good hints and ideas. I think it would really encourage Lizzie if you would go and check it out and leave your comments.

Well, we are through with school are I am about to tell the kids we are all going out to clean out the van. Quick poll, who thinks at least 3 out of 4 children will groan? I know which side I would be betting on. But, to tell you the truth, I don't want to do it either. I just don't know what could be keeping my maid from showing up, do you?


  1. Happy Friday! Hope you enjoy your night with only 2 children!

  2. enjoy your quiet(er) night!!

  3. What - groaning - from kids??? It should only take them about 5 minutes since there's so many of ya'll, right? Have fun 2nite.

  4. You better watch Sense and Sensibility too!

  5. Thanks so much for mentioning our link!
