Here some quick thoughts from the short week....
*Check out Ruffles Light potato chips...they are FAT FREE and delicious!
*Took all three kids to the grocery store...and only came away with a box of donuts (besides what was on the list).
*My boys have decided to sleep on the floor from now on...with sleeping caps.
*My 4yo wrote, directed, and performed his first show for us....Spot and Me...it was a musical and wonderful.
*My children have been favoring MC Hammer lately...complete with Hammer dance.
*Last trip to the pool on Monday...it was great (and hot!).
*Soccer season starts on Saturday...Go Green!!
*Wish I could watch Illini football....boo, hoo.
*Creamed spinach* is great....eat it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
*Bad days at school can be cured with a hug and an ice cream cone.
*Took a spin class for the first time.....sore but not sorry.
*Desperately waiting for the new TV season to start (but did watch a great PBS program on giant pumpkin farmers).
*Watched Yo Gabba Gabba...what is this crazy show?
Have a great weekend!!
