Today is a “no school” day for the boys. I rolled my eyes a little bit when I saw this on the calendar, because, well, haven’t they already had an excessive amount of “no school” days over the past 6 months??…but I get it. It was a pre-planned diocese wide staff development day, so even though the kids JUST went back to school, it stayed on the calendar.
The kids aren’t complaining. 🙂 I don’t blame them. Even though I liked school fine as a kid, I lived for those no school days growing up. We used to get a bunch of 4 day weekends in the fall, between the annual teacher’s convention, then parent/teacher conferences and then Thanksgiving. That was the BEST!
Let’s see, what else is new?
This has been a fairly uneventful week around here. My Dad has been here for the last few days working on installing a tile backsplash in our kitchen. (THANK YOU DAD!!) We re-did our kitchen over a year ago now and it has taken quite a while to get around to some of the final touches. I’ll be so glad when this is done! The tile is going to really finish it off. 🙂
I’ve been staying up way too late though this week. Like into the hours that start with “11”. Boo. It’s been nice (at the moment) but messes up my mornings a bit. Oh well. I’ll get back on track next week.
Last night we all watched Catching Fire, the second Hunger Games movie. Ethan finished the whole series in August, but Asher just finished the second book the other day and was excited to be ready to watch the movie. It didn’t disappoint! Now even my Dad is sucked in and said we’ll have to wait to watch the third one until he can be here again, too.

-soccer games x2
-hopefully carving out some time to read this new book that Amazon dropped off yesterday for me:
In closing, I’ll share a quote I loved from this week too. It came to me in James Clear’s 3-2-1 newsletter, but the quote is from Anne Frank. It spoke to me a bit this week. 🙂
