Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends!  We survived the crazy last week of school.  Whoo-hoo!!!!!

Today I am linking up with Andrea, Narci, and Erika for my weekly Friday Faves.


Today is the last day of school and we are officially on summer break!!!  I can not wait for the late nights and sleeping in with my girls.  We now have a 4th and 5th grader in the house.  So bittersweet.



This guy.  What can I say about him.  He has really had to step up his game with me being gone so much with my dad.  He has cooked, cleaned, got the girls ready for school, fixed lunches, and done laundry.  He seriously makes me love him more and more every day.  I can’t thank him enough for taking on the role of Mr. Mom without thinking twice about it.  If you are reading this Chris {I doubt he is}, know you are appreciated!



Our pool is open!  Chris worked really hard this week after school to get it ready for summer time.  Last night was our first official swim in it.  The girls had a great night swimming and laughing with each other.



People have been such a huge blessing to me since dad has been so sick.  The prayers mean so much, but it’s also the little gifts that mean a lot as well.  Just this week I received two monetary gifts from my school family and it touched my heart. Their monetary gifts helped SO much with the many trips we have had to make back and forth to St. Louis and all the extra costs that come along with that.  I didn’t want it to go unnoticed of people’s kindness and I’m so thankful for it this week!  I have learned through this situation I need to have more empathy when others are hurting and make sure I reach out and help others any time I can.

Hope you have a great weekend!  Since we are on summer break I won’t keep track of my days very well anymore so will probably only blog sporadically here and there.
