High Five for Friday...On Saturday

I meant to post this yesterday but my phone didn't cooperate. So here it is on Saturday :)

Its been a long weird week with new schedules and daddy gone 11 hours each day. I've been struggling to find the good in the crazy, exhausting days but this is helping me to see the good. So my top good things this week:

1. My baby boy who is almost 3 started his first full year of preschool this week. He went last year, starting halfway through the year. He was so excited to start school. He missed his friends this summer and was so happy to get back to it. I was so surprised by the tears that came as I walked away. I wasn't prepared for it because this was like old times but man it hit me. My boy is growing up so fast! 

2. I've been in a bit of a cloud this week because I've started re-reading some books that I found while unpacking. They are great Christian romance novels by Lori Wick and I've been really enjoying them. I haven't mentally been with it as much because of it but it's nice to escape reality from time to time. If you are in the market for a good, easy pleasure read, I highly recommend the English Garden series as well as many others of her work. 
3. Sunflowers! These have become some of my favorite flowers and just make me smile! After a hard day yesterday, I bought these to bring some happy into the house. 
4. We finished painting Leia's room last weekend which means we are so close to have the whole house painted! Two bathrooms, the remained of the hallway and the laundry is all that is left!! I took a painting break this week because it's exhausting but I hope by November to be pretty close to done!
5. We are loading up this morning to go to the zoo! I think we are all excited to get out and enjoy the day away today. We will miss daddy but it will help our day move along more quickly! 

Have a great weekend and I'll see you Monday!
