Ordinary Days...And Another Birthday

Ordinary days are my the best, don't you think? They are exactly what we are enjoying right now. With another birthday mixed in. Yours truly celebrated her...ahem...46th Birthday this week. And I did so with peace in my heart, and with love from my family and friends. It was a quiet day...schooling followed by an extra long, cozy afternoon nap, and then a dinner at Pizza Hut with my mother and sweet family. Afterward, we gathered at home for presents and a yummy chocolate cake made by my Peyton. I could not have asked for a better day to celebrate the blessed life I live. : )

Flowers from my man...

and Mums from sweet friends. : )

The best gift of all...this guy...beside me every single day.

Me. Unfiltered. At 46. Just me. : )

And some ordinary moments from our ordinary days...

not too sure about the clever cricket we discovered on our daily walk...

but more than excited about her daily job...getting the mail!

Lessons about apples culminate in some fun art projects in Kindergarten this year. : )

And that is a peek at our ordinary days, my friends.
Have some wonderful ones of your own!
Thanks for visiting!
