It's been a terrific weekend. Kids went to bed early tonight in anticipation of a BIG week with kindergarten.
Saturday: We went to the Farmer's Market for okra and doughnuts. Left with lots more than we had intended to buy. Fresh tomatoes from the garden are one of our favorites. Evie and I headed to the Nashville Children's Theatre with some friend to see snippets of the upcoming season. Evie loves a good "act" as she calls it. Looks like an amazing season is coming our way. I am most excited about James and the Giant Peach. Carl and I made okra soup with Henry's help. Henry is such a good little cook. He really gets into it! After dinner, I headed to a Moms Night In - it was a blast! Delicious food, fun friends, wine and karaoke. I was expecting just to go for a bit but did not make it home until 11:30. We had so much fun and it was the perfect break before a busy week. Elizabeth and I sang Carolina Girls but none of our TN friends appreciated it since they are not Carolina Girls. Some of us really like getting our hands on a microphone!
Sunday: Carl got up with the children and I slept a bit more before leaving for church. It was pouring rain when we got out of church and our kids do not like being wet and cold. Starbucks seemed like the perfect treat. We came home and snuggled on the couch for a movie and then did some stuff around the house. Rainy afternoons are perfect for being lazy!
I have a feeling weekends are about to become much more precious with Evie in school five days a week!
