Miscellany Monday

1. My hubby did a little update on my blog. The tabs at the top are updated with fun new little pictures. Do you love my kids in stick figure form? I super love them, all four of them. We had a wee bit of fun in the wee hours of the night, drawing accessories and hairdos. We stopped just shy of getting ridiculous.

2. My daughter scored her second goal last Saturday. Two weeks in a row now and it was every bit as exciting as the first. Thank goodness for oversized sunglasses fashion because I absolutely did get teary eyed. Watching her slam that ball in the goal and then throw her hands in the air and scream with all her might did me in. Then when her team mates came running to hug her, a tear trickled. Yup, I ain’t gonna lie. Fabulous. This girl is soccer smitten. Me thinks I have many years of soccer games in my future.

3. The big table with separate study areas in different rooms of the house if someone needs them has won. It works for us. No more individual desks.

5. The child is obsessed with Sock Monkey’s. He can spot them anywhere. Even in junk mail. Exhibit A.

The Super Hero party got deleted. It’s gotta be Sock Monkeys! Send me good Sock Monkey vibes and great monkey/ banana party ideas PLEASE! In a world where it wasn’t almost obscene to pay $100 for a stuffed animal I would absolutely buy the child this. I am quite certain he would pass out from overstimulation.

6. I am working on improving my phone photos. My poor kids can’t get away from my lens. It’s super fun and just a little bit addicting. My hubby is upgrading his iPhone soon and then I will get his hand me down. I am anxiously awaiting his because the camera on his is waaaayyyy better than the one on mine. He stays one step ahead of me and I score his leftovers. It’s a dreamy combo.

Come follow me on Instagram {justanightowl}. I will follow you back and we can share important moments through pictures like when I didn’t want to get up today and when I decided to make my baby look like a girl in the middle of Walmart.

7. My favorite new app. Cuptakes. Girly heaven meets phone apps.  You must check it out.

8. Hip Homeschool Moms. An online community of over 18,000 people all over the world. I am blessed to be a part of the team. I have made a crazy amazing group of friends from Germany to Washington who are a constant source of hilariousness and support. The internet rocks sometimes.

It is an awesome resource of all things education and parenting support for the homeschooling family.

I get the privilege of contributing an article each month…

These days where every single day at 1 pm and 7 pm when I go to lay down my sweet baby boy to sleep, I live magic. I sing, 

“God bless mommy and match box cars. God bless dad and thanks for the stars. God hears Amen wherever we are and I love you….”He wraps his chubby fingers tight around my neck and puts those curls on my shoulder and kicks his tiny toes. He lays and squeezes me and listens and giggles. I promise you it is near close to one of the sweetest moments I will experience in this lifetime. I get to live it…twice a day. Magic.

9. You know one of the greatest things about starting my own business? My little supporters. My girls came with me on a shoot last night to help make kids smile and watch them while I took pictures of their mama. Oh, they did a great job. I woke up this morning to my youngest daughter with this around her neck. Priceless. So priceless.

10. We have a day off school today! aaaahhhhh.

Happy Monday!

    I love that you shed a tear at soccer–I cry every time my kids do ANYTHING. I used to never cry so it baffles me?! 🙂 Enjoy your day off school!

    I absolutely love our big homeschool table . And I adore Cuptakes and only use their backgrounds on my phone. I was thankful to have found Hip Homeschool Moms. It’s a great resource and a referral to many of the homeschooling blogs I follow, including yours! Happy Monday!
