Oh Hey Friday: Week 6

Oh Hey Friday.
 I always feel like I should point, wink and add a "how you doin" after saying that. 

Big weekend plans are brewing here guys. I can't wait to tell you all about them... on Monday ;).

Friday 5

{ONE} A Day Alone

Yesterday I was minus children for almost the entire day. They had spent the night at my parents house with plans of going to a local theme park the next day. (Turns out said theme park happened to be closed so they improvised other plans.) 

I woke up at 6:30. I know some of you are cringing wondering why I would do that. But, compared to my 4:30 days that was sleeping in! Then I did the obvious thing one does when they don't have any kids at home, I went for an 8 mile run. #woot #Iknowimcrazy

 After a desperately needed shower I did some preparing for our exciting weekend, blogged and enjoyed the silence. It was a lovely day. 

{TWO} Toothless

This little lady has a knack for loosing teeth on special days. She lost her first tooth a couple months ago on her 6th birthday and this week she lost her second tooth on our 7th anniversary!

So stinking cute with that toothless grin.

{THREE} Standing In Storms

A friend sent me this on Pinterest and I had to share it.

We all have our unexpected storms that we have gone and will go through. Times that we felt we may just be blown away. So thankful for the anchor I have found in Christ that holds me fast during those times. 

{FOUR} Lesson Plans

Our home school co-op resumes classes on September 5th for the 2014/2015 school year. I reluctantly accepted a position as a high school teacher for the first semester. My class will be an introduction to needle arts AKA I will be teaching beginning crochet skills.

I am so nervous!

But having said that I am very excited to. I spent a chunk of an afternoon this week working on lesson plans and picking out projects to make. That really seemed to help me get a vision and set some goal for the class. I am excited to see how it goes. 

{FIVE} I NEED this

I saw this shirt on Pinterest this week and had two thoughts.

1) Oh my goodness, that shirt is ridiculous
