Manic Monday

Hallelujah, Monday is here!
I remember talking to one of my sister-in-law's about how stressed out I get on the weekends because the boys are home, Stuart is home (mostly), we have this and that to do...and she told me to think of M-F as "my" weekend. Since the boys are in school and I have that time to myself (kind of), I should just act like Monday is really Saturday.
I can't say that I have jumped full force into this thinking, but it has helped remind me that I do get some down time.
However, today is not one of those days. 
Today we are having a water softener installed.
Yes, I'm feeling quite grown up with our lawn guy and now a water softener.
But oh my gracious is my garage and kitchen a mess!
Stuart is beyond giddy about this and I'm just ready to see how a shower will feel post installation.
I guess the reward outweighs the temporary chaos.
This weekend I had the benefit of taking individual soccer pictures for our team.

Let me just say, photographers are worth every penny they charge!
It's no joke taking and editing pictures.
My hats off to you if that's what you do.
My baby sister also came into town again to celebrate baby Hutton.

Baby showers are so fun (as are babies).
I could smell powder fresh scent all day long.
Plus I got to make more onesies.
Again, my hat goes off to seamstresses.
Oh and did I mention that there are only 37 more days of school?
Summer is a comin'!
