A Week in Review (April 13-19)

A Week in Review (April 13-19)

Watched: Jack have a great time with Callum.  Laurie had to attend a funeral and so we were able to play Callum for a few hours.  The boys had a great time.  They continue to bond over their mutual love of balls.  I love the pic of them below playing with the ball maze together.

Read: I finished up The Circle.   This book was recommend from my local libraries Facebook page as one of the best reads of 2013. The premise seemed intriguing to me, and I wasn't let down. I think that the book, for me, is best summed up as an updated version of the classic 1984. I am not a huge fan of the science fiction genre, but I did enjoy this story. I wondered if our timelines went along the same way, what side of the story I would be on. If you are looking for an adult dystopian novel, I would recommend giving this a shot.

Listened: To Jack have a great time on Saturday. As you will see in the pictures below, on Saturday we started out with a football game against a pretty intense team, but they managed to stop them a time or two (which we heard one little guy from the other team complaining about on the way out!).  After that, we got the boat out to storage.  When we did that Jack realized that he wanted to spend some time messing around near the water, so we went to the rock beach and had a blast skipping rocks and exploring.  Following that we stopped by the store and got some marshmallows and graham crackers for the fire Jack was building.  It was a good thing we had them because didn't turn out to well, so while we scraped together some other things, toasted marshmallows sandwiches were nice and filling!  We also managed to color a dozen Easter Eggs that day too.  It was a busy and fun Saturday!

Made: A rainbow egg for Jack. He remembers this egg from a Team Umi Zoomi episode that he loved. I hope he is excited when he finds it.  Nick and I decided to give him the Golden Ninja inside it and then put the rest of the set in closet to find.

Felt: Excited that Jack finally lost his tooth. He has had a loose tooth for a couple weeks. At football practice on Thursday, he missed a catch and took it in the face. It was apparently the last straw for the tooth,.but there was still a lot of blood and if he sees blood, it's just freaks him out. I took a picture so he could see that he was fine.

Planned: For Jack to attend an Easter Egg hunt at his gymnastics place.  He had a lot of fun.  We had fun goofing around before hand.  He loves wearing his basket for a hat.  It totally cracks me up.  After a fun egg hunt, they got to do an obstacle course spoon race, break confetti eggs, and just have some open gym time.  He had a good time and I think it was worth rushing home from Wichita for.

Loved: Taking a Friday lunch with Nick.  We just threw some PB&Js and Ruffles and headed over to his work. We went just about a mile down the road and there was this cool trail with a train bridge, and a creek, and some hills. Jack was just so excited to be with Nick and exploring and it was a great treat after Nick's unexpected road trip. 

Here are the pics for the week:

Easter Egg Hunt Picks

We went to Academy Sports after the egg hunt and stumbled upon the clearance section.  We found this on the wrong rack and Jack just had to try it on.  We decided it looked like something Tio would wear.  For some reason he decided to strike this pose in homage to him.  Haha

The crazy team we played on Saturday.  While this is a horrible picture, you can tell that this team was ultra serious. They all had expensive matching shorts, their names printed on the back of their shirts, and they were actually making game film.

And here is our team with my boy as the QB. They are a bunch of rag tag ragamuffins, but they care about each other and I think that they are having a lot of fun. 

Jack and his big catch. Haha

Have fun skipping rocks 

This water is 38 degrees!  And still he just couldn't stay out of it :)

Some serious shimmery egg painting. I definitely will not be buying this kit next year. 

His joker face after his crazy egg dye experiment made a giant mess!

Jack has been wanting a fire, so we had two this weekend. On Saturday, we purchased some jumbo jumbo marshmallows. Jack had a good time catching them on a fire. It was more fun than eating them.
