Monday Musings

*My toes are blue. 
I just tweeted about it, so it showed up on my facebook page, too. (Because I connected the two accounts.) I found this great shade at Sally's and when I was applying it this morning (Which I intended to do yesterday before church, but it didn't happen. So I had naked toes yesterday. Eeeek!) I realized it was the. perfect. shade of Air Force blue. 
Which is very appropriate, us being Air Force and all.
Especially since the Academy graduates this week.
And especially especially since the Thunderbirds have been cruising screaming through the valley yesterday and today.

*I've had this great urge to stand up and sing, "And I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died who gave that right to me..."
every time they fly by.

*My husband gets home in a week and a half. My friend, Kelly (Hey, Kel!), said it gets harder the closer you get. 
She's right.

*I've tended to get two different reactions over the past few months to our crazy schedule.
1.) "I don't know how you're doing this." To which I reply, "Oh, it's fine. You just do it, you know?"
2.) "Well, what's so hard? I mean, you don't work, do you?" To which I want to reply, "Do you even know? Do you even have children? Would you like to explain to me the definition of work?" Except I don't say that. I usually just smile.

*I really understand why God's perfect plan involves two parents. 
Two involved parents.
I'm so thankful my hubby is an involved parent.

*Did I mention that my toes are blue? I love it.

*Between dropping Brit off at her gym try-out at 8:30am this last Saturday and getting Ian to his last baseball game at 10:30am, I had a bit to stop by some garage sales. 
When Nate gets home he'll have some long white shelves to put up in Brit's room just below the ceiling to hold all her trophies and knick-knacks.
I love that God remembers what we've been trying to remember to get even when we forget.

*I'm going to have petunias for the first time since Montana. 
Now, if I can just get them into the pots, that would be great.

*I love this pic of my kiddos on Mother's Day.
Taylor so did not want to be in it.
(Yes, he's taller than me now. By about two inches. Boo.)
We were throwin' up our signs.
They take that very seriously.

*Hey, guess what! My toes are Air Force blue!
