Last weekend BEFORE the plague hit us, Justin used some gift cards from family members (THANKS!) and bought some thick walkway stones. The dogs/us were wearing a pathway from the garage to the gate, but now it's so much fun to walk on the stone path! Justin dug the stones down into the ground, so they are very sturdy. I learned that trick from my dad from all the stone paths he put in over the years. :)
Last but not least: I had my MOPS table of 8 moms over about a week and a half ago for a game night. I definitely enjoyed getting to know them better!
Here's the invite wording I sent out:
"The TROUBLE with the GAME OF LIFE is that sometimes we moms are going up and down so many CHUTES and LADDERS, which can cause some AGGRAVATION. Once in a while we need to use our CRANIUM and take a CLUE to have some TRIVIAL PURSUIT!!!
Leave Dad at home to man the BATTLESHIP! He can be SOLITAIRE for one night, right? (Hope that won't cause a FAMILY FEUD.)
Please bring an appetizer to share... and remember if you don't come, you'll be in DOUBLE TROUBLE. Lots of fun in store!"
Well, blog readers, that was my extra creativity for the week! I'll write again sooner rather than later. Izzy and I have been busy with her "preschool" program that we've been working on in the mornings during Clara's nap. I'll let you know more about that soon.
