Tom’s Birthday and Other Things

toms watchTommy celebrated his seventh birthday this weekend!  His (tied for) favorite gift is this watch his daddy found for him.  It’s a Timex, in case you, too, have little boys, and the second hand is a little helicopter.  Tommy is infatuated and happily learning to tell time.  His other favorite I don’t have a picture of yet, but all of us are thoroughly enjoying it.  I’ll see if I can get a picture of it this afternoon.  And the cake?  Delaney made that.  Isn’t it cute?

This week is shaping up to be another doozy.  I was thinking we weren’t going to be able to fit in much schooling, but I think, in reality, we’re only going to miss two days, which isn’t too bad.  I’m tired just thinking about it all, though!  I was hoping to make it to Mass on Wednesday for St. Blaise’s feast day, but I don’t think we’ll have a car available, so we’ll stay home and do some art instead.  It’s all good, right?

Also, I love this picture of Evie.  It’s from Saturday, and she was getting tired, and Delaney was carrying her piggy back, and she just laid right down.  Poor baby.  We wore her out that day.  🙂
