Today’s post is really a wrap up of last week! Between all the baseball and soccer practices/games plus my busy season at work, I’ve fallen behind on blogging again. #sigh However, this week I’m catching up and have some of my FAVORITE posts! I’m sharing my Amazon Lately post where you can see what we’ve been priming to our house (I love getting ideas reading what other’s order!) as well as a Book Review post. EEKS! Book Reviews are my very favorite posts! So be sure to come back this week!

We started out our week THE BEST way!


Alyssa came for a visit!

She had an orthodontic appointment Monday morning so she came in late Sunday night and left Tuesday. It was a quick visit but we are always grateful to see our girl!


Carson and Cutter were so excited to see her when they got home from school.


Her brothers miss her a ton!


Carson worked all week on a project for his Science class. He had to make a 3-D model of a plant cell.


He did such a great job!


He made each part out of clay and then painted them. Once dry, he glued in place inside a cardboard box he had shaped to look like a plant cell. He was so excited about the way it turned out!


Something HUGE happened at the ballpark this week!
Cutter got a HIT!!

This is BIG, friends! For those of you who don’t know, Cutter was batting in a game two years ago and when he hit the ball, the bat came back at him and hit him in the mouth breaking four permanent teeth. Bless his heart. Cutter has been scared to death to hit since then. Last year, he wouldn’t stay in the batter’s box. Jumped out as soon as a pitch was thrown. But this year, he has been staying in and finally started swinging! On Friday night, he got a TRIPLE! (He’s a SUPER fast runner! Ha!) We were so excited for him!! Seeing him overcome a fear is a win this week!


Look at that smile!


Mark and I started running again together now that Spring is here with pretty weather. I snapped this pic of our running buddies this week. Ha! They look super thrilled to see us! I’ll take the cows any day over snakes!

I may or may not have encountered a snake last year on a run and made Mark pick me up in his car! #mommadontdosnakes

I hope you guys have a great Monday! See you back here tomorrow for Tuesday Talk!
