7 Quick Takes Friday

7 quick takes sm1 Your 7 Quick Takes Toolkit!

~1~ 
 My little boy is growing up. Look who has started helping his dad mow. 

He is actually pretty fast and enjoys doing it because it makes him feel like he is becoming a man.
He may be growing up but he is never to old to smile for my pictures. Daddy tells me I have him trained because he will stop and smile if I have my camera no matter what he is doing.

~2~ 
We have kittens! Four of them to be exact. There is a bit of a battle at the moment of how long this will be their home. Daddy is a sucker for his kids so I'm assuming we will have four more cats at our feet soon.

~3~ 
Busy does not even come close to our home at the moment. 

Carter had an x-ray of his leg a few weeks ago because he is having reocurring pain. The doctor wants him to have an MRI to get a better idea of what is going on but our insurance will not pay for an MRI until he has 10 sessions of physical therapy. Talk about frustrating! So we are doing 3 days a week of PT for him,
1 day a week for Taylor and Alyssa has softball 4 times a week. 
Not to mention......mixing in school, laundry (with NO dryer!), cleaning...and all that other fun stuff. :)

Busy, busy, busy.....but that's ok this will pass and then I will be complaining that I am bored. 
Yeah right, my house is never boring.

School has been a hit this week. I love that! I started doing spelling tests with the kids. Its kind of funny because at this point they absolutely love tests! So I have not even had to tell them to study their words because they are on it!


~5~
Spring is finally here to stay. 
(I think. Lets not forget this is Ohio)

 Everyone is loving this weather. I always know its nice out because the kids are never in the house.

Carter can usually be found in the dirt first thing in the morning!

 I am reading, How To Keep The "Good" in Your Boy by Dannah Gresh. This is an awesome book! 
I would highly recommend anyone that has a son to get your hands on this book!

It has wonderful insight and amazing examples of how to apply things into our sons' lives that will make a lasting effect.

I have been making a complete menu plan for a few weeks now. My goal is to plan out every meal so that we don't eat out. Especially with our busy schedule lately.
My problem is I always lose the paper with my menus.

I looked around online for some ideas but most of them only had dinner plans.  
So I just came up with my own.

I have it all laid out so there is no scrambling at 5 wondering what I am going to make for dinner.
Its also been nice because Alyssa will see whats for lunch and start it if I am busy. So far so good. Now I just need to get my hunky husband to have time to hang it up for me!
