Seven Quick Takes - Vol 9

It seems like it's been a long time since I've participated in Jennifer's Quick Takes or have been doing any blogging for that matter.  I've missed 7QT and 1000 Gifts

On Thursday's Henry brings a little something to share for "Share Time" at his school.  I should say sometimes....I'm slow on the uptake.  I say this because I totally forgot about Share Time today.  Nice, really nice.  I only remembered when we were sitting at the table checking in...I could see his face being sad that he didn't have anything for Share Time so I whispered in his ear that I would put a pumpkin (gourd) in his backpack and it would be there for Share Time.  So the girls and I went to the local grocery store only to find out they didn't have any gourds or Indian corn.  Now what?  I called my friend and she offered to find something at her house.  She had a pumpkin (it was kind of big) and ghost and a witch.  I went with the witch.  Drove back to school and dropped the witch in his backpack.  {As I did this I caught a glimpse of him with the teacher on the computer....he was so cute.  I called hubby and told him how absent minded I was in forgetting share time and what I did.  About 15 minutes he called me and said, "Do you think it was a good idea to bring a witch to Henry's (Catholic) school"?  Opps..maybe not?

I started a new Bible Study on the Psalms.  I appreciate being guided by others who have studied the Bible and Psalms beyond what I have.  I am thankful for the wisdom.  The study is not specifically on all of the Psalms but more on studying them in general.  The parallels.  The song.  The meditation.  It's a great way to spend the early morning hours.

My schedule has been off and on.  When it's off, I'm off.  When it's on, I'm on.  When I'm on, everything runs smoother.

Henry has been loving school.  He is so happy and proud of himself when I pick him up.  I just love that he loves it.  He's broadened so much in the last two weeks.  We are so proud of him.  He also has taken a liking to a little girl in his class named Sophie.  So cute.

Karley misses the play with Henry when he's at school but it's nice that she turns to Sophie to be her friend.  As close as Henry & Karley are to each other I want there to be room for Sophie as well.  The older Sophie get the more things change.  The older they all get the more it changes.

Sophie has been doing everything!  She jumps on the trampoline, crawls down the stairs, climbs up the couch.  She has yet to walk though.  She still requires two hand and if I try and go down to one she cries and buckles down.  She'll get there.

I've got some housekeeping to take care of in the next couple of days and if you can bear with me I am going to have a couple of giveaways too! :)  Be on the look out all you CSN lovers!

Have a blessed weekend!

  3. "When I'm on everything runs smoother" - SO true, isn't it!?

    I am so happy for Henry and that he is loving school, what a great opportunity for him to venture out. And I never thought about the fact that the girls would get more bonding time in during that, love that! :)

  5. That's so funny about the witch! Ooops!

    Christiana just started taking more steps on her own this past week. She's almost 15 months and by far my latest walker. If I didn't have two babies to carry, I might have enjoyed the delay a bit longer. :)
