Five on Friday

1. This week went a lot more smoothly than last week - it seems we have figured out regular normal life again. It helped a lot that Corbyn and Peyton were good little buddies most of the week.

2. I decided I should try out this recipe from Mel's Kitchen Cafe as it has over a million pins on Pinterest. Rog loved it. I was a little less enthusiastic about it, but I think I liked it enough to try it again someday.

3. On Wednesday Rog came home from school and we discovered that we were wearing the same shirt - our race shirts from the Electric Run. Neither of us changed and I kind of forgot about it until I looked down halfway through a visit from our financial advisor. (The company we bought life insurance through a few years ago wanted to check up on us.) Needless to say, I felt a little silly and self-conscious the rest of the time he was here! 

4. I finally finished my 7th book from last year (or 1st book of this year depending on how you look at it - I read 3/4 of it in 2013) yesterday - Little Women. The movie was one of my absolute favorites growing up, but I never had read it. I enjoyed it immensely and am glad I finally read it! I got the movie for Christmas, but I've been waiting to watch it until I finished. We have a date to watch it with my parents tonight after the kids go to bed and I can't wait!

 5. For various reasons, it worked out that I hosted joy school on Monday and Friday this week (as opposed to our regular Tuesday and Thursday schedule). It gave me more time to plan and prepare this way, but it also made it seem like my turn at joy school would never end. We had fun learning about the letter O. I'll blog more about it later, but for now here's a look at my favorite gold medal olympians!
