We had big plans for camping...
but Maddox started running a fever, and telling us his forehead hurt and we decided to throw a curve ball, and have a stay-cation at my parents, instead.
Saturday night, my brother's kids came over to spend the night too.
Our kids play so well together, and I can listen to them play for hours.
Maddox and Gunner are two peas in a pod, while Ellie is the little momma to Beckham.
It may be braggy to say it...
but we have some pretty good chicklins.
They are kind and smart...
and yeah, "they is important". ;)
And together, they play until they have dirt in their ears and not another ounce of energy to give.
I love those babies.
....is they don't sleep worth a shit.
Down at almost midnight, up by 7:30.
By 8:00, we were on the back porch, going at it again.
The boys boys instantly went to climbing and getting dirty...
And mom had Ellie's twirling dress washed and folded, so she could get back to spinning early.
We layed around a bit and then had an early dinner at Fuzzy's.
And came home so that the boys could do boy things.
Because mom and I bathed the boys, put them to bed, and did girl things.
because mine were up by 7:30 this morning...
and back to the porch we went!
After breakfast, we had to head home so that Lance could mow, and I could read my chapters and take my quiz and we could get the house back in order, etc.
Oh, and I had a chilly penguin.
I was in the neighborhood.
But I did make a 100 on my Cell and Molecular Biology lab....
So go figure.
My mom gave me some words of encouragement, and I am just going to move forward.
Next week I have a test in my biology class, and I am just going to pray for a D on that one.
(my sister assures me it is passing!)
And since I feel like I am reading another language with every chapter...
And my labs have taken me anywhere from 11 hours to 3 days at this point,
I will be thrilled with a 60!
Tomorrow is soccer practice, again.
Wednesday is meet the teacher...
Saturday is our first game...
And Monday I trust my kid with a stranger for the first time in his 49 months of life.
But we are ready!
