That can be time consuming....
They were working on building a fire.
And all that is left on the lamp is to sand it and then bring it home and paint it! It is pretty cool and Jake will hate this picture....hehehe.
After shop class we headed to Target to get a few new t-shirts for him. None of his shirts from last summer seem long enough. I guess that is because he has grown several inches. He is now (and has been for a few weeks) officially taller than me. I am 5' 6 3/4" tall. He is over 5'7". He calls me short stack now.
Then we headed to one of his friends (Wilson) house for his b-day party. We dropped him off at 4 and picked him up at 11. It was a sleepover but we don't do sleepovers...boys get dumber the more sugar they ingest and the more tired they get...and the more of them there are! Not to say they are dumb but you know what I mean. Jumping off the roof seems more doable at 2 am. I wish I had taken pictures of the boys. There were six of them, all boys that we met at Classical Conversations co-op when we moved here 3 years ago. They are all 13 or turning 13 (well one is a little brother and is 11) in the next couple of months. Three of them have hit puberty and are tall with deeper voices and the other three are short with high voices. It is crazy to see the change in them. And Jake is of course is one or the tall guys....by a lot! Time flies!!!!
On Saturday we did some serious grocery shopping-Jake stayed home while we went to Walmart (Aaron came with me-Jake said it was a date for us) and then came when we went to Sam's Club. He couldn't pass up the pizza or checking out all the cool stuff with Aaron. They like to check out all the huge TV's and books and movie's and...and...and...You get it.
And by the way...Dreams do come true! I am cutting back but I was excited to see that Sam's Club finally had diet Dr. Pepper. It is my one vice....
I have my spring-y-est table cloth one.
I forgot I took this picture!
And last week is a wrap...and we are on to a new one!
