Week in Review: Kindergarten Readiness, Cinderella and Cousins

Monday: We took Krystal and Peyton to the airport. Evie and I had so much fun with them and were sad to see them go home. Our next stop was ballet. Carl had a dinner meeting so it was a low-key night.

Tuesday: Evie went to school and Henry ran errands with me. Swimming was next on our agenda. Carl spent the night in Chattanooga. I went to a Kindergarten Readiness meeting at Evie's school. Lots of good information but of course there was that one mother that turned the meeting into her own personal counseling session. Evie has a good birthday for school but Henry has a summer birthday. Teachers appreciate independent children more than exceptional learners. I need to help Evie practice her independence.

Wednesday: I was so excited for a girl's day with Evie. We saw Cinderella and went out to lunch. I love having special time with my sweet girl. We made dinner for a friend recovering from surgery and it was fun to visit for a bit. Carl was home too when we pulled in the driveway.

Thursday: Both kids went to school and I ran a few errands before coming home to clean and pack. After school, our play group met at Chick fil A for some ice cream and playtime. We had such a good time and one of the dads joined us. He must have enjoyed his peek into the glamorous life of a SAHM's life and to see a play date first hand.

Friday: We stayed home to pack and then headed to Atlanta. It was an easy drive and we were so excited to see Kurt and Lollie and their girls. Evie loves Mary and Lucy so much. She was just as excited to see them as she is to be heading to Disney World. We had a fun night and a delicious dinner.

Now, we are headed down I-75 on our way to Orlando. Only 387 miles to go!

Have a great weekend!


  1. I feel your pain on summer birthdays. With Sam it would be an easy decision but I have struggled with the best choice for Avery. I am so excited about your Disney trip and can't wait to hear all about it!!

  2. Hilarious about the counseling session mom. Jennifer, you crack me up! And sweet Henry looks precious in the sleeping picture.
