Friday night is free, with the exception of Rhett working at the theatre for a few hours. I think we will have an easy supper and spend some time outside. The weather is calling for a perfect fall afternoon and evening. : )
Saturday we will start morning chores. Since I am a bit busier during the day lately, I thought it would be a good idea to enlist some help with a few small chores on Saturday mornings. I also think it is important to give the kids some responsibility as well as teach them basic life skills for when they grow up and leave me. Because I have heard that is what kids do. Imagine that! ; )
Saturday evening I am planning on a favorite meal of hamburgers on the grill with French fries for dinner. We have late Mass on Saturday evening as Rhett is serving. After that, I am hoping Steve makes a stop at our favorite Dairy Queen to get a treat from my sweet Madison.
Sunday is a busy day. First and foremost it is my hubby's birthday! Yep...he finally catches up to me in age. Happy 43rd Steve! : ) I think to celebrate I will have him cook some barbeque chicken on the grill for lunch. And have Peyton make his favorite side dish, a broccoli and stuffing dish. I am so good at delegating. After that we travel for the first soccer game of the season. We are hoping for a birthday win! Once we return from the game, Madison has her first Confirmation class, followed by Steve's requested chocolate cake with peanut butter icing. Which will be followed by me collapsing on the couch. : )
And that is what we have planned this weekend. I hope yours is crisp and cool and yummy too, whatever your plans may be. As always, thanks for visiting! : )
One last time for the stars and stripes dress this summer... Labor Day Weekend Mass. : )
A favorite picture of my "middle ones"...
and here they are altogether. Big sister was not quite ready...surprise, right? ; )
Enjoying the late summer/early fall view from the backyard these days...
Enjoying our annual Back to School lunch at our favorite café...
where I was so proud of myself for ordering this yummy healthy lunch...
that I celebrated with this huge piece of Chocolate Cream Pie. : )
A little phone shot of me and my oldest gal at my sister's house during our pizza and wing fest...
Speaking of food...my lunch one day this week...a bowl of pasta with fresh garden tomatoes. All is right with the world.
Look what we found! Fall has arrived!
One final shot of our little Kirby...who has adjusted to our new school schedule just fine. He lays under Peyton's desk all morning!
Have a happy weekend, friends!
