This week there are great kid quotes and a fun announcement!
“Mom, you’re weird.”
The child shall remain unnamed, but wow, what a way to start a Friday, huh?
Scott, to me, at Starbucks because I only drink tea. I hate coffee. This whole weirdness is starting to become a trend. Oh, and to follow up with that blasphemous coffee statement, I really do dislike it. I don’t care if you put chocolate, milk, pumpkin spice or narcotics in it, it still tastes disgusting. Pass the tea, please.
“Oh, we should probably talk about Luke’s lab results.”
Dr. S, about 10 minutes into our football discussion at the beginning of Luke’s nephrology visit. That’s a sure sign we live in Texas. Football before lab results? Always. More on the Lukinator next week. He has a cardiology visit so you’ll get a two-fer.
“There’s a pyramid at the end of that sentence.”
Clare, referring to the “period.” Ah, sweet kindergarten love.
“I’m still little and learning, John Paul.”
Clare to big brother after he chastised her for not filling out her after school chore chart.
It was a week full of big moments and little ones, for everybody. Luke started school, the kids began after school activities, I attended three back-to-school nights and learned to adjust to the extra time while Luke is at school. All in all – I don’t know. It’s different. Not bad or good, just…different. I’m not sure how I feel about the new chapter God has presented. That’s going to require some knee time.
In other news, I have a “for real life” writing gig for a Catholic magazine. My article is due next week and will be published sometime in January. Very exciting. When I got the email, I made sure it wasn’t spam and had Scott do some digging on the publication. It just happened out of the blue and it was such a lovely surprise. I look forward to sharing the article with you all when it debuts. It’s not Pulitzer Prize, but it’s still one of my passions and I’m honored they asked. I was also asked to speak (what?) to a Catholic sorority in College Station. Aggieland+Catholicism+Sweet college girls=whoop! More on that in late October when I head over there.
This weekend we have some Aggie football on the agenda. It’s highly likely my brother and I won’t be talking much this weekend. He’s a Gator and it could get ugly. I’ll have to screenshot our texts. There are flag football games, soccer practices, birthday parties and one last garage project to finish this weekend. We’ve officially entered the crazy season, but I’m excited. This is such a fun season of life. It’s makes me crazy tired, but I love it. Make it a great weekend, y’all!
