Weekend Update // Muffins with Mom

May 7, 2014

Last weekend we took a short road trip with Casey and Sheena to Casey’s parents’ house in Rogersville to visit with Billy and Rita and buy a motorcycle from them.

Reid has wanted a motorcycle for a while now, but the fever got even more intense after watching the motorcycle documentaries from Ewan McGreggor and Charley Boorman. He’s watched both series twice and read the book recently, so it was inevitable.

We took turns sitting by Jack since he wanted someone to talk and play with in the car.

We met Billy and Rita for lunch at a cute café in their little town. Afterwards, the boys went to try out the motorcycle while the girls stayed behind and shopped at the local boutiques.

Reid had no trouble picking up the bike and taking off.

Reid is very happy about his new bike, but still needs to get his license and a new tag before going on any real rides.

And he already has his next bike picked out for after this one.

Jack loves the Patton’s piano and made us all play so he could dance for us.

He, also, came up with the nickname Captain Underpants for Billy. Jack has said all week in the most serious tone that he wants to go back to Captain Underpants’ house.

Jack’s enjoying the bike, too.

Jack had an art show at school on Monday night. He got a 1st place ribbon for one of his projects!

Today was Muffins with Mom at his school. Jack had already told me in advance that he was going to sing a song and I would eat a muffin. And that’s basically what happened.

Seeing his face light up in excitement to see me when he walked in to sing was so sweet! He really does like me!

The kids sang this awkward version of Jesus Loves Me, but the words were changed to Mommy Loves Me. Let that sink in for a moment. Jack sang a couple of the lines, but he was too busy looking at me and shrugging.

He made some art for me.

Apparently, I’m special because sometimes I let Jack get up before it’s 7am.

Jack didn’t make this, but I love it.

We got to bring home all his crafts. It’s quite a bit and I’m not sure what to do with all of it.

Jack and I went to lunch at Moe’s before we went home for the afternoon.

Reid came home a little early so we could go to the motorcycle shop to look at gear.

In an attempt to get Jack to stop running around the store, I put him in the tires.

And there you have it. A tiny glimpse into some parts of our lives right now.

the end.

    Jack shrugging at “Mommy Loves Me” made me LOLOLOLOL. I believe that was the perfect response.
