Our weekend went incredibly way too fast! On Sunday evening Jonathan stated, “mom, this was the fastest weekend ever!” We didn’t do anything out of the ordinary, but it sure flew by!
Saturday Jonathan made it clear that he wanted a relaxing day. He had a few exams earlier in the week, finalized the Fall soccer season, having his last game in the middle of the week, and was in need of a day off. He didn’t even get out of his pajamas! I forget sometimes just how tired and on the go our young kiddos can be and it’s nice to just have a day to lounge around.
I was able to finish my book that I was reading The woman in Cabin 10 which was so good. I read it in about a week. I also was able to catch up on last weeks episode of This Is Us.
Sunday, we all had a bit more energy and I decided to attempt to make caramel apples. I followed a Martha Stewart recipe from an old Living magazine I had. Well, let’s just say it was a total bust and I’m determined to try again. My caramel didn’t darken like it should have so I will try a second attempt sometime soon.
While I was cooking the boys were crafting at the table. We didn’t really have anything in mind specifically, but they ended up making cute Halloween pictures using stickers, popsicle sticks, paint, and pom-poms.
We did end up getting outside for a while on Sunday morning and were able to get some more Halloween decorations out. We did a small graveyard in the front yard. Our fingers are crossed they make it to Halloween night without blowing away!
We have another busy week ahead with field trips for Jonathan, doctors appointments, and parent-teacher conferences.
Hope you had a great weekend and Happy Monday!
