The weekly post with my phone's pictures and the stories behind them.
Last week my InstaFriday became InstaSaturday because on Friday we were still in Chicago with our friends. This week I added a bonus InstaChicago post to round out last week's post.
Now we are back on track.
At 3:45 am we dropped John off in the Target parking lot for his trip to Washington DC and New York City
with a bunch of eighth graders and several brave adults.
I saw this and my first thought was "Oh man. My boy is a man."
Also, I am very jealous of the fact that he got to see a show on Broadway.
Sarah kept her room clean for a whole month so she got some Flapdoodles as a reward.
All month she's been marking off the days on her calendar, anticipating the bright pink Cotton Candy ice cream.
These two have spent pretty much every day together during Spring Break.
I've never owned a food processor until I got one for Christmas. I used it for the first time this week to make
Sun-dried Tomato Pesto. It was so pretty I had to take a picture. It was so yummy I'll have to make more.
Sarah has such a great imagination. It's something I admire about her. I was never really good at playing
make believe. Her littlest pet shop pets are going on a double date. Those are their smartphones on the table.
Wednesday at 11:00 pm the buses rolled into the Target parking lot with the precious cargo.
I was so excited to see John and hear all about his trip.
My tired traveler. Does a mom ever tire of watching her children when they sleep?
Twice in one week, Flapdoodles! This time I was getting some gift cards, and as long as I was there... I had
to have some quality time with my littlest and her littlest pet shop pet.
Thursday night we went over to my parents and introduced them to the game that we learned in Chicago
from our friends. "Things." It's always entertaining. And sometimes enlightening.
That was my week. How was yours?

Oh, after looking at other instaFridays I realized that I didn't mention Easter at all. Ugh. Apparently I didn't take any pictures of Easter, which is why it's not in this post. But it did happen around here.
No egg hunts on the front lawn, there was snow. So I did an egg hunt inside for Sarah, who was the only one interested in it. I had to have the plastic eggs from the road trip fetched out of the garbage in order to do the egg hunt for her. I offered to just hide the candy, but apparently it wasn't the same thing.
Even though we didn't go all crazy with photos or baskets, I completely enjoyed celebrating the resurrection on Sunday. Am so grateful for Jesus and his sacrifice for me. And for you.
I struggle with finding balance on this holiday in particular.
