A Week in the Life

I was super impressed with my ability to hold a wall sit with a weighted plate AND my trainer.

Ellie was part of a Family Home Evening fashion show that the Empty Nesters put on. I am not even going to pretend like it made sense to me. It was suppose to be "pun-ny" but it went over my head but it was a great opportunity for her to serve.
 She's got on a dress made out of the finest "tissue" and a "scoop neck."

Our neighbors went out of town, which meant we were welcome to use their pool. Which we did

I spent most of my time up at school either subbing or teaching Art Masterpiece. Sometimes my kids steal my phone and leave me awesome shots.
I did take a day off to celebrate one of my favorite friend's birthday. This will hopefully be the first and the last time I use a selfie stick.

Ellie and her friend Lizzie cleaned a friend's house to earn money for Girl's Camp and then came back to our house for make-overs before mutual.
I fed them corn dogs in the car on the way to mutual because I was running around so much that day/afternoon/evening. I think everyone ate in the car that day. Not my best mom moment.

Every day after school, Luke walks to the car with a bunch of older girls. It cracks me up. They call him Lolli Pop

Friday I took my favorite kids out to celebrate National Siblings Day. I couldn't celebrate with mine, but they could celebrate with each other.

And then we met up with one of my favorite couples for dinner and a movie. Someone in their brother's ward was producer, director, and actor of the movie and we thought we were so cool going to an independent film.
 It was terrible. Like we were holding in our giggles it was so bad. But we couldn't leave because they guy was sitting right behind us. At least the company was great!

Saturday after football and amid parties, hair cuts and fundraisers, Nate and I headed up to Taliesin West (winter home of Frank Lloyd Wright) as part of his 4th grade Famous Arizonan research.

We also squeezed in a trip to The Fractured Prune for fresh donuts.
 You get to pick your own glaze and toppings and every single one was delicious.
