I am very far behind on my random posts! Ever since school started back up, I've been consumed with lesson plans, doing homework with Connor, and soccer practices/games! It's been crazy in our world, but what else is new?
Right now I am currently obsessed with the song Touch the Sky by Hillsong United and (I'm almost afraid to say the next one)...Justin Bieber's "What do you Mean?" Haha. I know, I know. I'm 32 and too old for teenager boy pop music, but there's just something about the song that I love.
I have been obsessed with fancy grilled cheese sandwiches lately! I've made these twice in the last three weeks. These are heirloom tomato and fontina grilled cheese sandwiches with red onion and arugula. I also made a green bean, red onion and heirloom tomato with a lemon/mustard dressing. Such an amazing summer meal! I can also see making these fancy grilled cheeses with a soup in the winter!
Mr. Howard has been so busy at work and I've been so busy writing all new lesson plans for world history that on nights we don't have soccer - we've been coming home, having a family dinner, doing homework, putting the kids in the bath, doing bedtime, and then Mr. Howard and I have been doing work for several hours every night. It's been a little crazy, but we've tried really hard to pick a couple nights where we either rent a movie and watch it together (with our laptops PUT AWAY)...or have a nice dinner together after the kids are in bed...just something so that we're not doing work every single night.
The kids are very into funny faces right now. They think they are hillarious!
We had our VERY FIRST wiggly tooth!!!! It was all very exciting over here in our world! **Side note: Update...Since I wrote this last week, Connor has actually lost his tooth.**
We are trying to squeeze in every last tiny bit out of this summer weather we've got - with lots of pool visits! It looks like Connor was doing an Irish dance here!
I will have to do a part 2 post, because I still have so much to tell you about. Here's a little sneakpeak:
Reese, our precious pup, got a new home (stay tuned for more information)...
Tomorrow is our angel Cole Jayden's birthday. It's been a hard week for me!
We ripped out all the carpet in our playroom, stairs, and (partially in our) bedroom.
Connor lost his very tooth!
Isabella started ballet!
Connor had his very first soccer game.
We had ice cream for dinner!
Aiden got new shoes (which is a BIG deal in his world, folks!). They make him run "so super fast" and are the "most awesome shoes ever"!
