{Snow Day // Jan 16, 2018}

On Tuesday of this week we got to enjoy a nice snow day at home! Monday was a holiday, so it ended up being a super extended weekend. They were quick to call school around 9:30 the night before. We laughed and were thinking how they would never do that when we were kids. We had to wait until like 7:00 - 7:30 the next morning to find out. They would wait until the very last minute, so you had to get ready just in case they didn't call it. It also makes us laugh how quick Texas shuts down on snow days! But, an extra day at home? We'll take it!

{Our Newest Adventure // Basketball}

Way back in the middle of 2017 Mason told us he would like to play Basketball. He plays often in the gym at our church on Wednesdays and Sunday mornings before Sunday school. So, we waited until the next time we could sign him up and did so. We went with the league in the town where he goes to school and church. That way he could play with and against all of his friends. We thought he would enjoy it more knowing kids on his team. He was lucky enough to get on a team with several of his best friends!!

{This Past weekend // Jan // vol. 1}

I used to recap our weekends here on the blog and somewhere a long the line I got away from doing that! I miss posting about this because our weekends are usually filled with adventures and fun! And because I think I would enjoy looking back on these one day. This weekend was a 3 day weekend for my boys, but not for me. I am working today. But, I am so thankful that I get to work from home. I couldn't imagine having to drive into an office while my boys were at home. And, the weather is supposed to get icy and bad here today or tonight. SO grateful I don't have to drive in this mess. Anyhow, here's a look at this past weekend...
