The tv battle!

So this week liam has learned how to turn the tv off! Forget the little plastic shield, he sticks his little fingers behind it and pushes the buttons! Not sure how to prevent that....mommy brain needs to do some major thinking!

Today I ran to walmart with the 3 little ones to pick out something for Sean's teachers! It's Teacher Appreciation Week this week! We've done flower pots with herbs for his teachers the last couple years and it seems to go over well! I found some yummy smelling oregano and parsley, both easy to care for but very versatile to use! I hope his teachers like it!

It's been around 85+ degrees outside lately, I'm not sure I was ready for summer yet! But regardless, it's here, and here for several more months!

To rain or not to rain....

That seemed to be the question of the day today! When we first got up it was cloudy out, so I figured it would rain for sure! Later on, the sun came out, and I contemplated taking everyone outside by myself! Then after the babies nap, it was cloudy again! I really didn't feel like hauling everyone outside only to have to turn around and come back in if it started storming! So we spent a lazy day inside, playing, watching tv/movies, and snacking! :D

Just a quick note: Keebler Gripz Chips Deluxe these are the BEST snacks ever! The kids love them, they are small enough for the twins to eat, but they don't make a mushy mess like big cookies do! And they really are tasty! :D

Tomorrow is sunday, and I hate we have to miss church every second weekend! David's working hard this weekend, the start of the 7 day stretch always sucks!

While he was off thursday and friday we played outside, went to 2 ball games, bought a few more flowers for my last pot, set up the small wading pool for the kids, David cut grass and burnt some burgers on the grill! All in all a productive yet fun couple of days off!

The countdown has begun for our Canada trip! Sean has 4 weeks left of school, it's 8 weeks until we leave for Canada, and when we get back it's only a couple weeks until Sean and Kaelyn both start school again! Sean will be in 3rd grade, and Kaelyn will start 3yr preschool 3 mornings a week! I think she's going to have so much fun! It'll also give me a chance to focus on the twins a bit, and give her the opportunity to do more "big girl things", stuff I can't see to get done with her with 2 little monkeys toddling around!
