Friday Felicities

It has been a long while since I’ve participated in the Friday Felicities meme, and I thought this would be a good week to jump back in. 

Some happies from this week:

  • A great start to our homeschooling week.  I was energetic and enthusiastic to get started again, which was a relief after slogging through homeschooling with morning sickness.
  • The blessing of homeschooling realized when Lulu came down the a viral infection late Tuesday night.  We tabled our lessons for a couple of days, and the girls have enjoyed hours of audiobooks and some DVDs.  We worked when she felt like it and felt good about that.
  • A funny from our brief reading lesson on Thursday:  I asked Lulu to use the word slung in a sentence after she read the word (we’re working on the ng digraph right now).  Her sentence:  “I slung the dead camel around my neck and took it to town to sell it.”  What?  🙂
  • Exciting news on Tuesday at the obstetrician’s office:  we’re having a BOY!
  • A return to scrapbooking for me.  It feels good to have almost completed a layout this week!
  • A fresh haircut for me.  Just my normal ‘do (a slightly angled bob), but it feels nice and looks better. 
  • Snow on Thursday, which permitted Steady Eddie to stay home with us, too.  Not much snow, but enough by Alabama standards to cancel school for a couple of days and wipe the grocery shelves clear of milk and bread.  😉 (Yet another blessing of homeschooling, especially with young children:  they don’t know it’s a snow day!)


See the blue stuff sticking out from under Louise's hat? That's a nightcap, confiscated for the dress up bin after Steady Eddie and I used it in a Sunday School skit. Louise wears it to bed sometimes, a la Laura Ingalls. She felt it a necessary addition to her winter weather wear. This girl really keeps life interesting.

  1. The night cap is super sweet. And yes, children do keep life interesting.

  2. Of course, she slung the camel around her neck! I laughed out loud; best thing I’ve read in a while.

    Congratulations on your little boy…might get started on a quilt during my down time.

  3. […] happens several times a year and rarely ever materializes, we live in hope.  This week, though, we did get some snow, but it hardly compared to the blizzard in Katy and the Big Snow.   This is probably a good […]

  4. Happy Friday. 🙂 Glad it’s been a good week for you!

  5. I’m amused. Yesterday we received over four inches overnight with the snow still falling and school around here wasn’t even delayed. Had to bundle the kids up and walk to the bus stop. They did cancel early in the afternoon though because the wind started to pick up.

    Congrats on the news. Boys sure are different from girls though. My little guy certainly is more destructive.

  6. What a wonderful list, Amy!

    Congrats on a great start to the school week. You’re doing better than I am, and I’m not expecting. I hope Lulu gets well soon (I loved her slung camel sentence) and may the rest of you stay healthy.


    Snow makes us happy here, too. Like you guys, we don’t see much of it. We were supposed to get a wintry mix yesterday (the schools even closed in anticipation of it), but all we got was the arctic blast.

    Have a great weekend!

  7. um. Hello. WHAT?! AH! HAHAHA! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (not enough exclamation points). =D =D =D SO happy for you!!!

    Cracked up laughing about the dead camel.

  8. YAY!! You will love having 2 girls then a boy…we have that same pattern! 🙂 Girl clothes are a lot of fun, but it is especially fun to buy BLUE after all that pink!! 🙂 CONGRATS!!

    And that is just hilarious about the camel!

  9. Congratulations, Amy! Steady Eddie must be happy to anticipate some testosterone in the house! 🙂 (Around here it’s the standing joke: not just two daughters, but a female dog and now two female hamsters. My husband, who grew up in an all-boys family, liked it when we had a male beta fish a few years ago!)

    Hope the camel isn’t getting too heavy…

  10. […] This turned out to be the perfect short memory passage since we actually had a little bit of snow! […]
