Everett waiting patiently in a big boy chair. Yes, that's a huge bruise on his head from where he dove into the column in our kitchen.
Mia had a field trip yesterday (that she will never forgive us for missing) to The Palace and Spring Park. The Palace is a local sandwich shop in downtown Tuscumbia and they stopped there for ice cream and then went to the park to play and have lunch. She had a good time despite not having me there.
Jackson has had state testing this past week and they are gearing up for another whole week of it starting Monday, so I told the kids they could stay home from school today. We are having a yard sale tomorrow and they wanted to bake up some goodies to make their "own" money at the sale, so we are spending the day getting things prepared. I love having them all home, almost as much as Parker loves it. He gets kind of lost during the day without them here. Most mornings he sleeps until after they are gone, but his first question is always "Where's Jackson and Mia?". He will be very glad to discover them still here this morning! So, if you're out and about early in the morning stop by Living Faith Bookstore for our sale. One man's trash is another man's treasure!
