Happy Monday, friends! This is the LAST Monday for alarm clocks in this house! We are in our final week of school. But please don't be too jealous. We're only getting out early b/c the poor kids go back around Aug 12!! In my world, I think they should have off June-Aug (ending May 31 and going back Sept 1), but no one asked me. ;)

Anyway, back to our weekend. I was very thankful to not have any plans b/c I ended up getting sick. I woke up Saturday morning with an excruciating sore throat. I knew it was only a matter of time before I got sick b/c my son had been sick. But boy, I sure do hate a sore throat.

Fortunately I felt great on Friday for my daughter's school activities; Field Day and Class Party.
 I always love watching my kids interact with their friends. My sweet little daughter is probably the smallest in her class. They participated in relays and different events outside for Field Day.

Then we came inside for the party. And the kids all LOVED the beach balls!

On Saturday I woke up feeling awful and the kids woke up before 7 begging to go outside. UGH! So despite my efforts for wanting to crawl back in bed all day, I obliged. (The single parent days are rough, and I'm always thankful that I don't have to do it alone all the time. Kudos to single moms!) We spent most of the day outside playing. We had an early picnic, rode bikes (I even pulled my bike out for a few family rides), played with neighbors, and enjoyed our first snow cones of the Summer. And did I mention nobody napped that day? Including myself!! :(  

Needless to say when Sunday rolled around, I felt even worse. I couldn't manage to take the kids to church. I really wanted to stay in bed again, but obviously that was NOT an option. Thankfully the kids started playing really well together (inside) while I tried to clean the house a bit. I took them back outside for a picnic lunch and then my son napped. We ended the day back outside with minimal activity on my part.

Hopefully I didn't bore you too badly with my wknd recap. Here's a great last week of school and then lazy days ahead.

And don't forget my link ups with Biana and Meghan.


  1. UGH! I'm so sorry you were sick, that's no fun regularly, but playing a single parent totally makes it worse. Hopefully you'll start feeling better soon, lady!

  2. Im sorry you got sick, girl. Trust me, I know how awful that is having gone through it last weekend. Hopefully you'll be feeling back to yourself asap!!

  4. Sorry you weren't feeling well! Hope you can get some rest and start feeling better ASAP. And I am with you on the summer thing. It should definitely be longer! Our kids start back Aug. 3 this year. SO early!!!

  5. Ugh I'm sorry you weren't feeling well, but the fact you were able to have a fun day on Saturday despite it is great!! I hope it's an easy last week of school for you and I'm with you - going back to school before Sept. should be illegal LOL! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston
