Five On Friday

I can’t believe it’s already time for another Five On Friday post… this week went by crazy fast!  Let’s get to it!

Jacob has, yet again, amazed us with his fabulous memory and intellect.  Last night during dinner, he sang a little song and recited all of the planets in order by distance from the sun, and he knew lots of other random facts like which ones were hot, which ones have rings, etc.  He has only been learning about the planets for the last few days, so the fact that he remembers them in order just blows my mind!  I don’t think I knew that little tidbit of information until around third grade, maybe, and he’s only three!  And I only remembered it because of the great planetary mnemonic, My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas… y’all remember that?!  I had forgotten all about it until last night.  

Anyway, it appears that Jacob’s teacher is still teaching that there are only eight planets… I know Pluto was demoted from a planet a few years back, but I thought that they had promoted it back to a planet again recently?!  Apparently I can’t keep up, but in the great words of 2 Skinnee J’s (look them up!), “Pluto is a planet” and it always will be in my book.

This one.  

She’s just so girly.  And I do hope that she stays this way.  Everyone always told me that I would have all boys because I always wanted a little girl so bad, and then when I had Olivia, everyone told me that she’ll end up being a tomboy so I still won’t have the girly girl that I always wanted.  Hahahaha.  I sure hope they’re wrong, because I’m truly enjoying all of the girliness.  All this week she has been coming home from school, finding her little toy bracelet, sliding it on her arm, and wearing it for the rest of the night.  And she loves her sunglasses.  And her little toy purse.  She really is just a tiny little Lindsay walking around.  And I will love it as long as it lasts.

One of my favorite things about this time of year is going on walks around our neighborhood after dinner.  It’s so good to get out of the house after sitting at a desk all day, and it’s even better spending time with my little fam!  Plus, cardio is never a bad thing!

I can’t possibly wait any longer to tell you – the building process for the addition has begun!!!!  This week they removed the brick from the wall where we’re attaching the indoor closet, they pulled up the sod, laid the footings, and poured the slab!!  I am beyond thrilled!!  Unfortunately, the framing won’t begin until the week after next, so next week we won’t see any progress, but the good news is that it should only take about two weeks to complete once the framing begins.  Soooo, as long as the weather cooperates (fingers crossed), we should be all settled in by the end of this month!!!!  I think I feel a Fourth of July party coming on…

Furnishing the porch is going to be a blast, but honestly, I’m overwhelmed by all of the choices for outdoor furniture.  We’ve never owned any before, so I’m not exactly sure what to look for.  I have no idea which colors are best for camouflaging dirt, and which materials are best for weathering the elements, so I have no clue where to start!  I do know that we (and by “we” I mean me) would like to divide the porch into three areas: 

1.     A sitting area with a couch, a couple of chairs, a cute rug, and maybe a coffee table 

2.    A dining area with a table and some chairs or a bench 

3.  A “layout” area with a couple of chaise lounges and a little table for relaxing and reading books 

In addition to the above, I would also like some sort of storage cabinet or bins for all of the kids’ outdoor toys.  If anyone has any recommendations for any of the above, they would be greatly appreciated! 

Hope your weekends are full of sunshine and everything wonderful!

Today I'm linking up with A. Liz Adventures for Five On Friday!
