More beauty at the beach!
Tom told Noah he used to carry around a football when he was a kid. Because Noah would do anything to be like dad it's his new thing. When he is not at school, this football does not leave his side....day or NIGHT!

We had a wonderful week!
Last weekend the kids had their last basketball clinic and all three enjoyed scrimmages (I was watching Noah this week). It was a great experience for them! There was also sledding, the movie, 'Gnomeo and Juliet' and a birthday party for Bill. Sunday-Tuesday poor Noah was sick but was ready to roll by Wednesday! Wednesday is a super busy day around here where I pick the kids up from school at 3:55 and then get them to Religious Ed by 4:30. We've tried a couple of different things in that half hour but it usually brings crazy rushed stress. The best way we have found to fill the time involves a drive to the beach where we have a 'car snack' and watch the beauty. We can talk about their day and relax a bit before the next thing! Of course they really love it when I show up with hot chocolate or Shamrock Shakes! Thursday I was blessed to be able to spend a day in Chicago with my dear friend Kate and a local artist. We had a private tour of the Art Institute, an outstanding and very swanky lunch, time to draw (i know!) in a gallery, even a little time to shop, and a lot of time to chat, laugh, and relax. It was amazing (thanks Joan for helping with the kids).
Today, I am thankful that it is Friday and I look forward to a weekend of snuggles and laughter at home.
