With the end of summer, brings kick-starting a new year of MOPS. I love our MOPS group and am excited that the 2011-2012 year will be my first year as co-coordinator. Next week, our core group of leaders will be trotting off to MOPS National Convention in Nashville. I'm excited to go, but knowing how homesick I get, I'm a little nervous at the same time. In the end, it's always worth it. So, I spent a few days this week brainstorming and putting together pages of ideas for our new year. It's going to be great!

Just a few weeks ago, I misread the directions on the bread machine and had major pizza dough fail! And would you believe I screwed up pizza dough again??! Yes, I'm serious. Needless to say, we went out for pizza that night...which then got me thinking maybe I should mess up supper more often.
My Harrison can be sweet when he wants too -- key words there, when he wants to. I made pancakes for Saturday morning breakfast for my little men. As Harrison was clearing the table, he says to me, "Man, that was good good breakfast." I said, "Well, thanks...maybe one day you'll get you a wife that'll cook you good good breakfast." And his reply, "Yep...just like you." Besides the fact that given his behavior towards me for the week, this comment was endearingly sweet. I told Justin the story later and his synopsis was, "That boy's playin' you like a fiddle." And that may be true as well, but for now I'll take what I can get!
