5 Thoughts

1. On Saturday I got to see my dear friend Amanda of Kaleidoscope of Colors when I took maternity pictures for her!   So excited to meet her new little baby in a couple of months!  Today I am spending my morning editing the pictures from her session.

2. Alex's team won their first game in their state cup series.  She played really good and helped set up a shot.

3.  The weather was perfect this last week, mid 70's and sunny.  Had a park date with a bunch of friends from church; the kids all played and we sat and visited, it was a much needed day.. though I did get a bit sunburned.

4. I am the worst at putting laundry away.  Usually when the kids are getting ready for bed I will be scrambling to get it in their closets; so if it is night that Eric isn't home and it is up to me solely to do bedtime.. well the clothes end up on my bedroom floor.   I always start the laundry early in the day with the best intentions.... but yep...

5. I can't believe that January is almost over!  I am still getting use to the fact that it is 2016.  I am proud to say I have written the year correctly every time this month.  Watch, halfway through the year I will randomly mess it up.

What is your Friday 5?


  1. Oh, that makes me nuts when the trash cans fall over. And my neighbors think I'm the worst because I won't pick them up even if they're in the street. I wait until my husband comes home to deal with it. Congrats to your son on the science fair project...I can see why he kicked butt. Oooh, and I hear you on laundry. I purposely begin early because I hate it. It only goes so far.

    1. I have picked ours up a few times, but yeah usually let my husband do it too :)

  2. So I have a basket full of clean laundry, not even folded that has been sitting there's been there a while! Plus a folded load upstairs. Yeah, I feel ya. hahaha.

    1. Yes, it never ever ends either is the problem!

  3. Oh laundry is the worst! I don't mind washing, drying, or folding... it's the putting away that gets me every time! Sounds like your kids are all doing so well!! Can you believe it is the last Friday of January already?!

    1. I know, time is going way too fast! And yes folding laundry, why can’t it just fold itself??

  4. Ugh! Folding and putting away laundry is the worst chore! I hate it!

    1. Totally agree! Probably why I am ignoring the laundry right now ;)

  5. Congratulations to Alex and her team!
    Great job, Lucas!
    Love your family! XOXO
