down south for the weekend.

My brother and sister-in-law live in southern Indiana. We don't get down there very much, but I had a three day weekend so we thought this would be a great time to go down and visit them and our niece and nephew. We left after I got home from work Friday and came back Sunday night.

We got to watch our nephew, Caleb's flag football game on Saturday. They did a great job and Caleb scored 2 touchdowns! It was so cute and fun to watch.

The rest of the weekend was spent eating brunch at Tara's mom's, playing with the kids, Corn Hole, cooking brats/hot dogs over the bonfire, playing games, playing football, church, and lots of laughs. (Plus taking entirely TOO many pictures and videos of our niece, Lydia.)

Lydia uses a lot of sign language since she's still learning to talk. The sign for "cat" is moving your fingers out from your face like whiskers. However, Lydia signs the word "cat" by picking her nose and flicking it!

Lydia and I had some quality Aunty/Niece time in her room playing. Is she not the cutest?!

My sister-in-law is due with child number 3 in early May, and we can't wait to find out what it is. So happy that we'll have another kiddo to play with and spoil!

Then we made the 5 hour trip back north to head home. I have Columbus Day off today, so I'm spending the day doing grocery shopping, laundry, cleaning, and all the other stuff that I normally have to get done on the weekends.

Major event on the agenda for this week: finishing report cards. They're due Wednesday and Parent Teacher Conferences are next week. Lots of work and prep to get ready for conferences! Wish me luck.

xoxo, wife.
