Another day down.

And I can't say I've had some of my finer moments today. After getting one of the older boys up at 5:30, I forgot to reset my alarm. I woke up a half hour after I normally start getting the kids up. Did you know squeezing the getting ready that normally takes an hour into a half hour is possible without missing any buses?? Not easy, but it is. And that's all I'm going to say about that. ;)

Some of the things we've been doing yesterday and today....

(yes, I made sure they were put away when the little ones were around)

Theo loves to stand next to me pushing on me while I'm doing dishes. He won't stay out of the kitchen. In a moment of deperation, I put him on the stool to watch me. He loved it. Today I did it again. He figured out my trick and figured out how to get down! Drat.

Coffee filter snowflakes with Rose, Jordan, and Leroy...
Chipper told me that there wasn't snow outside, and it was warm out... I told him not to tell them that, and that we had to make snow because we didn't have any! :)

He was trying to keep the glasses on over his firefighting mask... it didn't last long.

Jordan had a giant light bulb moment. About what, I'm not sure. Math?

I was crowned. My name does mean princess after all. I was thrilled. 


Wearing my new Meredith Andrews shirt in honor or her new CD being released today! YAY! Can't wait to listen to it!
For those who don't know, it is her song this blog is named after.. read more here.
LOVE this shirt... bird flying free from a cage, and "Not for a moment will you forsake me" on it. Doesn't that just scream orphan advocate? :)

This afternoon, Rose and Jordan learned to crochet. Rose is making a hat , and Jordan is making a scarf. I'm so proud of them for how fast they are learning. They kept saying how bad they were and that they weren't very good, but I had to keep reminding them that they were comparing themselves to me, and I've been crocheting 4 years longer than them. :) Practice makes perfect. My knowledge about how crocheting originated finally paid off as well because they were asking about that. :)

Tomorrow is a new day, and don't worry, I won't make that mistake again. :)


  1. No M.A. CD in the mail here yet. MLK Day yesterday may have goofed up the mailing schedule. I'll send it on down once it's here!

    You can share w/ Rose and Jordan the amount of frustration you had on your first project. :-) (And many more after that!)

    Hope tomorrow AM goes better for you! Love you!

  2. You are doing a great job, Sarah. We all have those types of mornings. I hope all of you are feeling well. Everyone certainly looks happy in the photos.
