Happy Mother's Day!

I had a great morning cooking breakfast with our 5 year old. He was feeling sad because he'd never gotten to use the stove. So he fried his own egg, made toast for the family, and learned how to peel oranges too!

The older kids got home from church right about then, so I "let" them each fry their own egg for breakfast. I felt like a genius, now they can cook eggs for themselves this summer!

We also had four little fart eggs, which are tiny chicken eggs. I'm not sure which of our hens is laying them, but I'd been setting them aside. So we decided to cook them up, thinking we'd get teeny fried eggs we could feed to our pets. It was a surprise to find they didn't have yolks in them! I'm pretty sure the cats and dogs didn't care...

I've really been trying to make the most of any free time with the kids. Today we played with a turtle, a snail, and watched some frogs. We are so busy all the time with school and sports and music, and I'm thrilled that they get the opportunities they do. But it means we have precious little time at home. So I can't wait for summer break and arts and crafts, reading and gardening. Maybe I'll even fit in some sewing time one of these days.

We spent the rest of the day visiting my Nana, a trip to my mom and dad's where the kids played five card draw while we watched the Royals, and then home for movies and a steak dinner. Can't think of much I'd rather do than spend days like this with my family!
