Five on Friday

1. I finished both my books (and before my book club too)! The Light Between Oceans was sad, but because I knew it was going to be sad, it wasn't too sad. (If that makes sense!) It was also just plain delightful. And I guess what I'm saying is, don't let the sad nature of the book stop you from reading it! Okay for Now was just as good as the first time I read it and a good one to discuss as a book club.

2. Nearly every afternoon, Corbyn and Peyton go over to the Howard's house to see if Rhys and Calla can come out to play. It's pretty darn adorable to watch them play in their little pairs.

3. On Wednesday one of Rog's classes was cancelled and he decided to skip his other one, so he could surprise us by getting home early. It was perfect timing because Thursday he was off to Wood Badge, an intense scout leader training, that goes until Saturday night and continues again in 2 weeks. I've pretty much been dreading it since I heard about it (almost a year ago), so I'm actually just happy to be finally getting it over with!

4. I put the final touches on the kids' room this week. (I'll be posting pictures and a full tour soon.) My main motivation to finish it was to be able to move on to my next big project - an advent calendar for my mini ornaments I made last year.

5. Last night the kids got to stay up with me watching BYU play UCF at Grandma and Grandpa's house. It was a depressing game (we lost 24-31 in overtime) and even more depressing is the fact that we can expect our future games to be just as depressing. So much for the undefeated season we were hoping for!
