QOTW: November 11, 2011
“When is Wukie going to grow up? It’s takin’ forevah.”
Clare, as she listened to Luke do his usual “ew, ew, ew” grunt in the carseat. I promised her that with therapy, he would be talking soon (we hope!). She just wants a buddy to talk to, sweet thing.
I have so many things I’ve wanted to blog about this week and just not enough time to really think them out and write: John Paul’s big visit to the urologist, my super awesome client call about the Pope, a Luke update and more. Just think, that means next week will be chocked full of greatness!
Another crazy fun weekend ahead. The girls only have two weeks left of soccer and I think we’re all ready. With the early games both weeks, it should be nice and “brisk” outside. Will has his last math meet of the semester, too. Math is becoming a pretty cool term around here and we are very proud of his efforts. Next week, we’re gearing up for the big 4-H County Food Show. Will’s entry is in breads and cereals. Lucky his mom knows a thing or two about that category – back in the day I won state! The recipe on tap is Rosemary Foccacia Bread. And, yes, it is that good. Southern Living recipes will never fail ya. John Paul and Anna-Laura are both entering nutritious snacks in the Clover Kids category. Sunday we’ll be among a roomful of miracles at the Preemie Power event, hosted by Hand to Hold. I promise to give you all the results about Lonestar Luke and his “Preemie of the Year” bid when we return home!
Make it a great weekend! If you live here in Austin and are looking for a fun Saturday afternoon family event, you can check out the ECHO Family Festival, 11am-2pm at St. Ignatius down off Oltorf.
