7 Quick Takes and 5 Random Thoughts



~~ONE~~
 
Malcolm and I were discussing the upcoming event of him using the potty. His response was as follows: "No! I don't want to do that! I no have enouff money for that. Maybe for my birffday I will do that."
 
~~TWO~~
 
Came across this amazing adoption video and had to share the link. It is seven minutes long but worth every second.
 
 
~~THREE~~
 
So of course today is Valentine's Day. Michael and I are celebrating by bribing the kids with a movie and eating a dinner at home. It's our annual tradition and we love it.

~~FOUR~~

Speaking of Valentine's Day, having a kid in school means I get to do all the "official" school things that the stores promote items for. Like the teacher sent a note home for Valentine's Day and if we want to participate then each student must have the same thing, blah, blah. We are having a blast with this sort of conformity, but my main thought is that things get expensive fast when it is all "times 20."

~~FIVE~~

So on top of classroom conformity, we were invited to our annual V-Day homeschool celebration, which may or may not go because of weather. So last night was a "Mega Prepare for Valentine's Day" event. But know what? It turned out to be the best time I've had in a while.

~~SIX~~

Michael was at campus until late, which usually sucks, but this time it didn't. The six of us sat around the table and made Valentine's. Not handmade. I mean we filled in the blanks in a store-bought Star Wars Card. After we completes the 50+ cards, we had a taste test with the mini-bars.

 
~~SEVEN~~
 
Everyone was laughing and joking and smiling and chatting. It was the type of experience I signed up for when I said I wanted a large family. It may only come once in a while, but it was worth the wait.

 
Oh, and Margie organized the chocolates for us.

Isn't it great when they all work together and you can have such a relaxing time together. I love those moments.
