catching up

Had a great week, a great Mother's being a mom! My two boys are the best! Spencer is lots of fun, writes his name on everything now(has been writing it for 3 months), wants to know how to spell everything, finished listening to his first chapter book with Daddy (James & the Giant Peach), which they both loved! He also was *suspended* from school this precious boy! He was throwing rocks with some of the older boys at school. It has been a problem this year, so they made a rule a while ago that anyone throwing rocks would be poor boy cried and was very remorseful. He thought for a moment he wouldn't be allowed back to school this year. We made it a lesson for him, and I don't think it will happen again, poor boy!

Cooper is almost 2, and acting like it for sure. He is cuddley and affectionate and good at figuring things out and getting into things, too. Yesterday he took a red sharpie and colored the laptop screen! Just FYI, the magic eraser works pretty well. i am looking at a screen with a few red stray marks, but cleaned up for the most part. Oh Cooper-man.

I am reading a book that is fantastic! It;s called Breathe by Keri Wyatt Kent. It actually was part of my MOPS enrollment kit. It's all about living a life that is more meaningful and simplistic. She calls it Sabbath Simplicity. And it calls for us taking the sabbath cleaning, working, etc...just time for God and family. It's something that Joe and I have talked about. I think we are going to do it. So, if you want to slow down your pace of life, and make more time for God and your family, read this book...great! ;-)

OK, better go...though it is Sunday, I do have some cleaning to do. Slacked off yesterday! Need to make sure that I clean more on Saturdays. We also have a birthday party at Rollerland this afternoon...should be cute, pre-schoolers on skates!!!!
