Last Friday highlights: we landed our first customer! I sold a liquor store on a website deal and they made a deposit! It was super exciting and also stressful, but so fun to get our first customer!

Saturday was 50 degrees most of the day, so we cleaned up the house and then took a long walk down Power Line Trail to the Little Caesars, shared a pizza, and then played for awhile at the McDs playplace. Then after we walked back home we had some ice cream! We even got sunburned! We also got confirmation that my newest little niece was born! Hurray! We are so happy for them.

Sunday was life group and we enjoyed several hours with friends, a pretty restful day overall.

Which brings us to today! School went really smoothly this morning, which is always a nice surprise. Javi is reading like a champ! Keilana has far surpassed her reading level, and is also really advancing in math, all these things are so encouraging to see. Declan is desperate to learn to read, I did a couple of lessons with him, and then he did six more on his own! Cassandra is feeling under the weather, little bit of a fever, so we spent a good portion of the day snuggling.

We finally watched Endgame, so we have officially completed our quest to watch the Marvel movies with the kids! Bigs really loved it, but all of the time travel stuff went right over Declan’s head, so he was pretty lost. We also did a video chat with my parents and caught them up on all the fun stuff that has been happening lately.

I got my first rejection letter in response to a query! It’s an odd thing to be excited about, but I guess just the knowledge that others are reading the beginning of my book is fun. I didn’t feel like this agency was a particularly good fit anyways. Hopefully better news will be coming my way in the next few weeks!

We also worked on emptying out our big hutch/bookcase in our living room. It holds all our books, school books, filing, games, and so much more. We’re going to be selling it and since our hardwood floors are going in, now’s the time to get rid of it. It holds a surprising amount of stuff, so we’re tackling it little bits at a time. The kids helped move all the books up to the loft this evening and had way too much fun doing it.

Hopefully this bug will pass the rest of the kids, and we won’t have to restructure the rest of our week! We will see. Cassandra seems to be doing better, but that could be the medicine talking. 🙂
