Poor Henry always has a big bonk on his forehead...he got a really good one during sacrament meeting. Just when one starts to heal he always gets another. I guess that's just life with a toddler boy, right?!
After getting Henry down for a nap on Sunday I decided to try and snag one too. I left the girls playing princesses and awoke to find Cinderella and Moana happily still playing.
Kate has also really been into American Girl dolls. We read from this American Girl Doll Guide book we have every night and Kate insisted we hang up this poster. She is going to die on Friday when she opens her first AG doll, Kit! I can't wait!
Friday my friend Chelsea and I headed over to Mesa to go the one of our favorite girls dresses company first warehouse sale. I was pretty excited that it just so happened to be in my city. I am proud to say we were second in line, had a lot of fun and scored some good deals too. It was fun to scroll through my Instagram feed and see us!
And it wore the kids right out. Oh yeah, I didn't mention it was the hottest day of the year! Thankfully a cold front moved in and it's cooled down a lot. I'm not ready for the heat.
After school on Friday we also decorated Kate's teacher's door for the upcoming Teacher Appreciation Week. And I had to share a few favorite writings from this week. Kate has a weekly journal they write in each day. They've been talking about going on journeys/adventures and so all this week she's been writing about going to Utah to see her grandparents (in both Orem and SLC), Disneyland and even Hawaii.
"I go to Orem. I take my sleeping bag. I see my Grandma and Grandpa."
"I go to Salt Lake. I take my family. I see my Grandma and Grandpa."
Then Saturday we got to go see (and say goodbye) to some of our dear Iowa friends that have been living in Mesa, the Neiswenders. It was Cole's birthday. We have such fond memories of babysitting swaps and BBQs when Kate and Cole were just tiny babes...and now they are 6! They are moving to Pittsburg for a new job and although with the kids in school all day we haven't gotten together very often lately we will miss them dearly.
