I enjoy Friday

Well Mom, I had a pretty nice day today :) Fridays usually are nice. i don't know what it is about Fridays, but I usually feel pretty good in the mornings and since it's library day and grocery day I make myself get dressed and go out which is a good thing. I think I need more to do outside of the house, maybe then I'd feel like this most days. Now that Jenna is home for the summer I really am going to try. I promised her that we'd have a fun summer.

Marah loves library day! She looks forward to it starting on Wednesday and that's when I can start holding it over her head LOL "You'd better stop that or no library." :) yep, that's how I roll.

She's just starting to get into the computer. We don't let her play at home yet for two reasons. One is that we have a weird mouse. It's a gaming mouse and it has extra buttons on it that are a little tough for little hands to maneuver. Two is because our computer is on the fritz and has been for the last few months and so we only let Jenna play on Webkinz since it's the only site we trust not to kill our computer with spyware. Anyway, Marah is learning how to use the computer at the library. today she played a Dora game that I thought would put me to sleep for about 30 minutes.

After the computer we headed over to the puzzles. This is the first time Marah has ever sat to work a puzzle at the library! She's usually too distracted by other things :)

Lastly, while I picked out books for the girls, Marah played on the pirate ship:

Isn't she the cutest? :) After the library we went grocery shopping. I picked up some stuff for the campfire tonight so Jenna was thrilled when she came home and showered me with "I love you mom"s :) LOL She's commenting on them again right now actually. "That's great mom, you bought the chocolates and the marshmallows" See, I'm so cool!

I have a little over an hour to finish all the packing and clean out the car. I'm gonna bring some stuff down to the car but I'm not going to exhaust myself. Eric can get what I'm not up for handling when he gets home.

Today was Jenna's last school day! I cried a little bit when she brought home her stuff today. She had a little note in her backpack from her teacher, and it said "Thank you for being part of my life" and I'm tearing up now over it LOL I don't know why. The end of the year is always very emotional for me. Much more than the start of the year. I think of the relationships she's developed, the teachers who have worked so hard with her all year and how much she loves them. It breaks my heart to have it end. Especially when I don't know who her teacher will be next year. I LOVED her teacher this year. She was awesome! Everyone that was on her team this year was so great. I know she'll be working with some of the same people next year, but Mrs. Carlson... she'll be missed.

Well, I really should go. I have so much to do and very little time left. I really don't want Eric to have to worry about anything when he gets home except maybe carrying a few things down the stairs and tossing them in the car before we roll out. So I'll leave you with this little clip of Marah singing.


  1. Yay! Looks like you had a fun day. I can't tell you how much Marah looks like Eric! No way he could deny that she's his kid. So cute.
    Love you,

  2. Cute, cute, cuuuuuute! Tell Marah and Jenna Papa loves them very much and kick Eric for me.

    Love you all!


  3. dude can't wait to see her again :)

  4. marah is so cute. the clip was cute. i loved going to the library with my babysitter...i still remember those days. =]

    anyway, we had prom at the tuscarora country club. its like 20 minutes from our school, which is way too small to hold a prom. =]
