I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I spent Saturday doing some cleaning projects that require more time than I can devote to them during the week. It always feels so good to get caught up with things around the house! Sunday we had a wonderful day at church; Mr. C preached some great messages (which he always does :D).
Mondays are just about the weirdest day of the week for us. Bookworm has a mid-morning piano lesson in town which throws the morning school schedule off a wee bit. We jump back into things after her lesson, but it does take us longer to finish up our work. Mr. C sometimes takes part of the day off on Monday, so today is was nice to have him home with us. He treated the kids to McDonald's for lunch, which means I have four more Happy Meal toys around the house to step on. :-}
This afternoon a friend from church rode with me to pick up some birthday goodies I'd ordered for Bookworm who will be turning 9 on Wednesday. I am soooo excited about Bookworm's presents! I'll just say that when we painted her bedroom a couple of months ago, I knew it was time to change her room decor. She is absolutely in love with anything and everything to do with horses, so I've been searching high and low for some things to complete an "Extreme Makeover" in her room. I'll share pictures with you after the "transformation."
I've been updating the children's ChorePacks, but it is taking me longer than anticipated. My kids are such a blessing around the house, but recently they have not been doing their best on their chores. Part of the problem lies with me not checking the chores consistently. I need to take some time this week to re-train them in some areas and work on my consistency. :D
Tomorrow night we are having our church-wide Valentine's Banquet, so between preparing for that and Bookworm's birthday, I have a pretty busy week ahead of me. I do have a few thoughts to share on the Valentine's theme of l-o-v-e, so hopefully I'll get around to posting those later this week.
