Thursday Things

1. I'm currently stepping slightly out of my reading comfort zone with Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine (spoiler alert - she isn't!). I say slightly, because the book takes place in my preferred reading region...the UK (Scotland, specifically). 

2. We're ramping up for our DC/VA trip and so long as I don't think about leaving Dex behind (C says he can't come) I'm so excited to go. I have no qualm leaving the bigger littles, and I doubt they'll notice I'm gone, but this is my first extended stay from Dex (I've had one night away and will have another tomorrow night). Due to his tendency to cry (it's all a show) when he has to be held by someone who isn't me (or Papa) or even hears my voice on the phone, it's looking like FaceTime won't be happening. I'll be fine, but I will cry as we pull away on Wednesday. It'll be my one cry of the year. 

3. I'm thinking out summer bucket list should include a tour of playgrounds in town, but then I think about ALL OF THE GERMS and maybe we'll just still with Sanderson, St. B's, and church. 

4. GMac's spring school photo may be the cutest thing I have ever seen. 

5. C and I are currently touring the local schools to find the best home for Monkey next year.  I'm looking forward to making a God-guided decision and not laying up at night thinking about where out little (literally) Monkey will be next year. If it were up to her, she'd choose by the best playground. 

6. During some very lively breakfast discussions last Saturday about what kind of things the Eater Bunny puts in Easter baskets, GMac was adamant the EB was bringing him a police station lego set. EB did not have this planned, but since he's four and we spoil our kids too much and this wasn't a super expensive request and the EB isn't quite ready to smash all his hopes and dreams, the EB went out and found the Lego police station and a tree house Lego for Monkey.  You would've thought the boy won the lottery the next morning as he stood outside of the bathroom door (the basket was hidden in the first floor shower) in undies pumping his fists in the air, yelling "MY PLAY* STATION! MY PLAY STATION! MY PLAY STATION!" He hasn't let the police station out of his site. The EB brought a Star Wars Lego set to Grandma's house which GMac was also thrilled with and ran to C saying, "It's what we were hoping for!" Safe to say the last minute purchases were a success. 


7. Last but certainly not least, Grandma outdid herself with the Easter outfits this year.
