Soccer, Dreams, & Mary Janes

Hey, y'all.  We're having another Saturday at home.  Loving it.  I was actually pretty productive last Saturday.  I got a week's worth of work done for one of my grad school classes.  Do you know how good that feels?  Do you?

I'm hoping for another productive day.  Before my kid even had her breakfast this morning, she was chanting her requests to go outside.  So we got us a good morning walk in that included a stop at the lake and playground.

So what have you been up to this week?

It's been a pretty good week around here.  I slacked on my efforts to get enough sleep at night, but hopefully I can catch back up this week.

M started soccer.  The class is absolutely adorable, but we've gotta work on listening to the coach and focusing.  M wants the ball ALL THE TIME and isn't really interested when she doesn't have it.  Room for improvement, no doubt.

I had a dream this week that we'd gotten a new house.  While the house in my dream was very much just that -- a dream (it was gorgeous, but not something we could afford), it did get me to thinking about our next home.  We're still in our very first home we bought a year after we got married.  That was five years and a baby ago. We've outgrown it.  Another kid will make it even smaller (and take away what I believe is a very necessary guest room). While I'd love to begin the process of getting our house ready to sell (not really -- not at all), I really don't have the time to devote to it at the moment. Unlike Gerri of the Past (who thought she could do it all), I'm going to sit down and focus on what's in front of me at the moment: finishing this degree.  Selling our house can wait. And I'm going to stay off the real estate Web sites drooling over what I think my next house should be.  That can wait, too.

Anyhoo, here are a few pics from the week.

Such a big girl.

The view from my classroom this week.

It was homecoming, so that meant music in the courtyard.  There are always these awesome student bands that play during the lunch periods (think Stevie Wonder, Maroon 5, etc.). Since my room faces the courtyard, my students can listen to the music while they work.

Why yes, this kid DID dress herself for the playground that day.  This would be -- not one--  but TWO skirts, a pair of leggings (that are inside out), and a pair of too-big Mary Janes.  She even added an extra bow or two to her hair.

Remind me to never let my kid wear too-big shoes to the playground.  Because guess what?  When it's time to play, she'll want to take them off (duh).

I'm a sucker for Mary Janes -- no matter the style/print.  These were a Zulily blow-out sale find from last winter that she still hasn't quite grown into.  Got 'em in green, too.

Well, I'm off to do some research, do some laundry, play with my kid, and clean my messy kitchen.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend...

...and the week ahead.  Be back soon.
