Two crazy little boys wearing Razorback T-Shirts were ready for school on Thursday morning. They had fun making super silly faces.
Oh, so sweet . . . for a few minutes at least! Thursday would be a full day of school, work, homework, reading assignments, Mom's Night dinner, and Daddy and Boys trip to the (real) Campisi's. It was a full day!
Lincoln was happy to go to school on Friday morning, and Beau was super happy to stay home and play. We did some exercising in the morning, then he played with his Lego Juniors.
We had lunch and discussed what we should do in the afternoon. An acorn walk was Beau's first choice until Mommy found some small heart-shaped baking pans deep in the kitchen drawer . . . then his request changed to baking cookies. What a great idea! We got our supplies and ingredients out and began on the cookie dough, and then we discovered that we were short on sugar. So we hit "pause" on our baking and headed to Tom Tom for our most important ingredient. What a cute baking buddy!
Before we could get to the sugar, the sweetest little boy ever suggested that we needed some flowers to made beautiful bases (vases). It was hard to say no to a request so sweet! We divided the flowers up between a vase on the kitchen table and a vase on the playroom table. Beau loves that there are his special flowers in the playroom!
We came home and finished our cookie dough with the sugar and found a box delivered by the postman. Minnie had sent the funnest shoes ever! Leopard booties have been on the wish list for a while, and it was so fun to wear them!
We picked Lincoln up from Kindergarten and played on the playground with a few friends for a while, but it was a little chilly with the wind. Lincoln was ready to go inside to the library to take his first Accelerated Reader quiz. He had checked out "Ride Fly Guy Ride!" and couldn't wait to ace the quiz. And ace it, he did!
Lincoln loved taking the AR quizzes, and we found two other books that he had already read that he could earn points on. He's addicted already!
When we got home it was time to bake our cookie dough in our special heart-shaped pans, and the boys LOVED the results. (So did Daddy, but I didn't take his picture!) Notice the fresh flowers on the table, courtesy of Beau!
Lincoln spent some time in the afternoon finishing up his Santa's Workshop Lego set. It had over 10,000 pieces (and was marked for a 12 year old), and it has been a challenge to him. Everyone was so proud of him for finishing it.
Dinner at Anamia's with the Kuhlmans and Hoggs then bath and a movie in sleeping bags will be the perfect ending to Friday night. So much cuteness and so much fun, and we are ready for the weekend.
