Weekend Recap

We've had a good weekend so far – and it's not over yet! I have a 3-day weekend due to the holiday and the boys don't have school/daycare tomorrow. Yesterday we slept in (even I got to sleep until almost 8!) and I got a nice long run in during naptime. After Thomas was done with his nap and had had lunch, we headed to Dothan so I could check out the running store there. I was not all that impressed with it – very small and not much stuff in stock. I did get a few new running stickers for my van, though. Then we went to Hobby Lobby to get some decals for Robert's and Ryan's Pinewood Derby cars and then to Toys R Us just to look around. They have a much better selection of Legos than Target or Walmart, but they are more expensive. Since it was getting to be dinnertime, we decided to eat at Cici's Pizza – can't beat feeding a family of 4 for $12 at a restaurant!!

This morning was church, and of course, Thomas wanted to walk all over. I took him out during the lessons and the sermon so he could walk around without disrupting the service, but once the service is over, he's free to roam wherever. After our fellowship time, we headed to Target to get diapers and a few other things and then home. We spent the afternoon cleaning out the van and playing before we had grilled steaks for dinner. Robert learned how to clean his bathroom today, and he can earn up to $3 a week for doing that chore. We went through Lesson 2 of Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace, Jr., and after all his daily chores were done, he had his second payday.  He's doing really well with his savings goal for a Lego kit – probably 2 more weeks and he'll have enough!

Time for bed now – tomorrow begins a new week.
