Well I’m headed to Africa in just 2 short days. Crazy, crazy, insanely excited. I wish I could list out the supplies we are taking…it’s the wildest thing I’ve ever seen. The list ranges from an essential oil diffuser to boxes of coco pebbles & fruit loops to bubble wands to first aid kits to indestructible soccer balls. I’ve alerted everyone I will need a picture of all of us and all our bags. You have been warned.
So as you can image things are wild around these parts. And when things get wild, I tend to get weird…like weirder than normal. It never fails when preparing for a trip with a list a mile long of things to accomplish, I always decide I need to start and finish some meaningless project. Thank you Pinterest for my new DIY passport wallet obsession. It’s a real thing people. And I feel like this is when I should tell you I bought the leather from a discount bin from a shady chap with quite an impressive mustache. Good stories contain details.
I did finish up my last custom order…and I kind of don’t want to let this 15×30 go.
I also snuck in another Gifter Project canvas. I’m going to try and knock one more out before I hit the airways too, but we’ll see how that goes.
On Tuesday I did the best thing ever and paid the sweetest college girl in all the land to come to our house for like 5 whole hours while I ran the most ludicrous amount of errands ever. You guys it was a long, long list. I new I had made the greatest choice in young ladies when she sent me this picture:
I wish I could keep her forever!
In other sad news, it’s been raining for 2 days here and this means there has been no swimming in 2 days. We’re all going through withdrawals. Games, games, movies, iPad time, crafts, more games, more movies…it’s a vicious cycle. And does anyone else loathe Monopoly?!?!?!
He kills me. He’s my quirky child and I could not love it more.
I feel like every summer day deserves donuts! It’s just fitting.
And yesterday I erased our chalkboard and put up a new one. Josh Kelley is solo parenting while I’m gone. He’s the dad who has to take off work or work from home while I’m gone, all the while wrangling this wild tribe of children. I can honestly say we are equal co-parents…equal keeping the house up partners…he does his 1/2 and much more…lunches, dinners, baths, laundry, dishes, cleaning, you name it. Parenting is hard and lately I keep running the fruits of the spirit through my head daily and I know my Kelleys staying behind, big & small, will need this reminder while I’m away as well…big & colorful.
So that’s my random for today. Thank you for stopping by and reading. I’m grateful for you kind people! Hope you have a great Thursday!
