Just a few random things for you on this gloriously gorgeous September Friday...
We are concluding Caleb's first week of Kindergarten!! He started out with two half days on Monday and Tuesday and the rest of the week has been full days. Let me tell you, he's been a Kindergarten superstar. He's not the most outgoing kid out there, so I was a little unsure of how he would react to being left at school ALL day. But, he's totally put his brave face on in the mornings, even when I can tell he's feeling nervous, gets into line with the other kids, and waves goodbye to me and Eme as he marches through the door. And each day when I pick him up he tells me that Kindergarten is great :)
I had a few unused canning jars kicking around so I decided to use em up and make some red pepper jelly! Let me tell you-- red pepper jelly is one of my all time go to snacks-- some cheese, crackers, and pepper jelly? Yum. The best kind is always the homemade version-- I have yet to find a store bought version that compares. I used a recipe off the Mennonite Girl's Can Cook site-- easy peasy.
Thank you all for your feedback on shared kids rooms-- I've been shopping around to find a few things and measuring up the room to see what's going to work. First up-- I've gotta give the room a fresh coat of paint (Caleb really did a number on his walls by his bed). Maybe I'll even attempt it this weekend?? Maybe if I consume enough Wild Cherry Diet Pepsi?? We'll see.
I'm a little sad to say goodbye to Caleb's room... I've always loved his dresser/shelves space... cluttered little boy goodness. But, gotta make room for....
... this little lady. Who's been having a whole lot of alone time with Mama while Caleb's in school. She love to shop... atta girl. We hit the stores and the next thing I know she's decked out in bracelets and necklaces or she's on the floor trying on a pair of pants. We're going to have fun together.
And... the bump this week. It's growing... and that baby is moving in there! I seriously need to get me some elastic pants... I've outgrown almost all of my regular jeans... just have the pinks and my green gap jeggings left... but I hate maternity clothes. They always look a little lame.
Oh, and my hardware came for the kitchen!! I decided to skip the cheapies and go straight for the amazing ones... they really were the perfect fit for my kitchen. Can't wait for them to go on! Too bad my cabinetry guy's out of town for the weekend... guess it's going to have to wait a few days!
So, it's just me and kiddos over the next days... gonna have to get creative to keep them entertained! Happy weekend everyone!
