So, here's to more blogging.
We've had a great weekend. My mom came for a visit on Thursday and Friday, so Travis and I let the littles play with Mamaw and we went out for a quick date of sushi and sweatpants. (Ha! That should have been the title of this post.) It got cold here all of a sudden and all the boys needed some new sweats. Asking them to wear jeans is, like, the worst thing ever, so we have to stock a steady supply of sweat pants around these parts. Although, Triston is starting to want to dress nicer. I knew this day would come, but there was a time when I was seriously worried about him. Ha ha, he would cry and throw a huge fit if I asked him to put on jeans or a polo shirt. Now, he chooses that clothing on his own! That boy is growing up. Travis and I didn't get to stay out too late because my mom had to leave, but it was nice to spend some time with him. And Kanpai. Wow. I'm pretty sure the best part of eating sushi there is the music they play. Like, all the good bands from the 90s! Oh! And I got all my hair chopped off on Friday. Like, seriously chopped, by someone I had never been to before and I wish I hadn't. The length is just so short...but, it's just hair! So, who cares.

The best part of General Conference outside of all the spiritual stuff is the food! I feel like it's fall cooking kick-off or something! ha ha. So it started on Thursday with Chicken Gnocchi Soup, Chicken and Waffles with sweet corn and butter beans on Saturday, and Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls and Chili on Sunday with family members. So good!

So we are going to hit the zoo and do some fun learning type stuff this week that we just don't have time for during our regular schedule. I'm planning on posting about our homeschooling adventures soon.
