This weekend will be spent in the garden. I will have to give you a tiny tour as soon as we get everything cleaned up. Almost all of our tomato plants are in (we have 32 varieties this year) and I just need to make a run to the nursery to get a couple more plants to put in. I am hoping these things will get done tomorrow, but we will see. In my mind things go fast, but in reality, when dealing with three little girls at the same time you are trying to get things done, everything takes a bit longer.
I met with our education specialist for the coming school year today and I am nervous and excited! There will be so much learning going on for everyone in our house. I am excited to see how True (and Brave) progress this year. True is the one officially in kindergarten, but Brave is so close in age that I will be teaching her the same thing as well. And if she doesn't quite get it, well, she will get it again next year! We have actually already started some schooling already, so that when baby comes, which is in a little over 3 short months, we can take some time off to adjust to that new change.
I officially cancelled our cable today as we have decided for sure to not get a television. Those things are expensive and it is an expense we currently can't do, so we are more than happy to go without one. For us, money is better spent elsewhere. Ben and I do have a couple shows we do like to watch, but those can all be caught on Hulu, and we did find we can watch food network shows online too, so all is and will be well.
Plus, after all your comments of how some of you do without a television made me think we can really do without one and it helps we weren't tv people anyways. I think it is just weird to think we don't have one and though we had one, it wasn't used often and was more just a comfort thing. One time waster out the house is always a good thing. And I already have made use of that little cove where the television was and it is now decorated and more useful for interactive family things. Can't wait to share that with you soon.
New things this week...
- Sometimes being the oldest isn't fun and neither is fighting with your sibling(s). Yup! There was a major one this week, which could explain why my posts might have been unexciting.
- My children thrive on structure.
- Be part of helping this family who were victims of the joplin tornado.
- My baby sister is the cutest red bird named Panchito around. Go to Disneyland and see her in the new parade! And don't forget to take a picture like this blogger did.
Ben is cooking up a yummy pasta dinner and we will have family movie night with the girls tonight. Happy weekend all!!!
