We, like most families, always seem to be workin’ around here. At least that’s how it feels. Santa’a (tall and handsome) elf put together a late Christmas gift this weekend (and with no swearing or sweat I might add. A first!). Work seems to have been the theme of our weekend at the Robinson household.
The lawn, even in the winter, needs tending to. Thankfully our yard man is a dependable as the come.
Can you spot the similarities between these two Michaels? Hint: look at their mouthes
Even if it takes him a tad longer with his junior-sized John Deere, this guy gets the job done.
Firsts: He spotted a friend in the neighborhood. Wasn’t he surprised to find a three year old boy across the street on, get this, a junior-size four-wheeler. Immediate friends!
Homework is the highlight of Kenley’s day. If she manages to still have homework leftover by the time we arrive home in the late afternoon/early evening, the girl can’t wait to set up shop at the kitchen bar so she can get to work! A test? That’s even more exciting because she ‘gets’ to prepare days in advance! If only I had had that kind of enthusiasm for academics when I was her age….
Firsts: Then there’s the third kid who I’ve neglected terribly I suppose. Starting with the fact that I’ve obviously never taught the little fellow how to properly hold a pencil. Bad, mama. For the first time, I’ve started working with him to trace letters. Don’t tell Department of Children and Families, please.
Sneaking kisses- which Kenley will have none of. She has to study, remember!
Always workin’? Don’t let them fool you.
