WMFW: Off with the Sheet!

For Sale: Three used top sheets! Various styles available... Scooby Doo, Cars, stripes. Slight wear from washing. Wrinkly from storage under the comforter.

I've wanted to cut down on the amount of stuff on the boys' beds so that they can manage their own bed making. The boys loved piling on their stuffed animals (by themselves), so I tried removing their top sheets. (The top sheets were hardly used anyway!) They now pull up the comforter. Straighten the pillow and pile on the stuffed animals.

Miami Photos!

Not too long ago we were invited to visit Miami. We had such a wonderful time on our mini vacation. The boys LOVED being on the plane. We let them sit together in one row while hubby and I sat behind them. The young woman sitting next to me said, "Wow. My parents would never have allowed my brothers and I to sit together. We would have been separated!" A, D, and S did well being together. :)

"What's that button for?" D asked.

The boys loved the beaches and pools that we visited.

We always find some fun playground equipment to burn off excess energy!

The boys tried new foods at a seafood restaurant and a Cuban restaurant.

Counting Down

At school today one of my student's parents shared the following conversation:

Kindergarten Student: Mom, there are only 28 days of school left.
Mom: Are you counting down?
K Student: No, but my teacher is!!!
