Smart Alleck Response #4368

I have about lost count LOL...on my Brae's smartalleck but still cute comebacks.

This afternoon:

Me: I am so tired.

Brae: Mom why don't you take a nap, I will play quiet.

Me: Brae that is so sweet thinking of me like that.

Brae: Well Mom I was actually thinking of myself because you have been getting kinda cranky this afternoon.

Kids rooms

Britt is away at summer camp (first time ever and she is loving it, thankful that my friends are counselors and her best friend is in her bunk).

While she was away I wanted to do a few things to her room. Well I had a very stressful Monday and I needed to burn off the stress so the few things turned into repainting and more...LOL. Her room fits her personality so well. Brae gave me the puppy dog face so he got a few new things in his room too not as exciting as sissy's but he is thrilled because I let him have Bakugan stuff we just threw up a quick border using a handbook. Brae was most thrilled with the curtains I guess he has just always had mini blinds but he was fascinated with the curtains..LOL.

Great book for art and kids

Working on lesson plans for the Fall. I am so impressed with a book I picked up for fun. We are going to do art each Friday (or that is the plan anyway we shall see how it goes). It would be fun for homeschooling or just an add in. Anyway I love this book:

This book is hands on art. Each page gives you a brief biography of the artist and time period. Then it gives you a practical way to recreate the painting style. I highly recommend it and we are looking so forward to using this book.

14 years ago!

14 years ago today I truly found and married my other half. We have laughed, cried, went through things that we didn't understand, we have fought, made up and loved so much. Happy Anniversary Matt!

We look so young! I am sure I will be thinking the same thing down the road (hopefully a long long long way down) when Britt or Brae gets married.
(I promise I know the date of my anniversary the camera date was set wrong but I still love this pic)

Helpful hint

My kids especially Britt want to take everything they own when we go to someone's house. Grandparents, friends, it doesn't matter everything must go. Well instead of arguing I have a new rule. We have to make a list to make sure everything comes home. The list must be neat handwriting Britt's case it must be cursive. Having to write it out really makes her think about what she really wants to take and with checking the list before she comes home she remembers all her stuff. The extra handwriting practice is great too!

Busy busy...

Life is at high speed right now. I keep thinking if I can make it the next 5 weeks I will be okay. Just so much going on. Trying to get organized for things too that are happening in August, then try to plan school. We finally just gave up on the school and took the summer off. We are doing some things on line at Time for Learning so I don't feel too bad. But not keeping a set lesson plan over the Summer.

We have vacation coming up in about 5 weeks. Just so much to do before we leave. Because as soon as we return school will start. Then about 10 other things begin too...LOL.

My new obsession is my Iphone...oh it is so fun. First I wasn't sure if I would like it or not but now I love it and the apps are so much fun.

Both kids lounged around today in their pajamas Braden said "this is how I need to dress everyday and do nothing too".....he would if I let him.
