Friday Favorites

Today, I'm back with my Friday Favorites, and I'm linking up with Andrea, Erika & Narci.

We have a couple of things planned this weekend, but nothing too big thankfully.  I'm ready for a nice, relaxing weekend at home. 
I bought a couple new games for around the house.  The kids have loved playing Battle Ship.  Dan and I have been versing the kids, but I think this weekend is the perfect chance to take him on and show him how this game is played.  Ha!  ;)

 Emma asked if I would come up to her school this week and watch their assembly.  They talked about how to handle bully's and who their hero's where.  So sweet!
 I love that even though my kids fight with each other constantly, I know that they've got each others backs and that they love each other.  In case you can't understand the video, Emma is saying, "My brother and sister are my hero's because whenever I'm sad, they make me feel better or loved."  Melt my heart!  But what about Mama?!  ;)

 Last night we went up to the high school and watched Jesse play basketball.  They'll have a couple Saturday morning games, but last night they played at half time of the boys Varsity game.  Jesse's the one with the ball in this video. 
It was so fun to watch, and crazy at the same time, when I see how much he's growing up.

 Today I'm filling out passport applications for my kids.  I should have done this a long time ago, so today, I'm crossing it off my list.  I am ready to start planning our next adventure.  It might be a while until we do anything, but it's never to early to start dreaming and planning, right!?

I found this little note the other day just sitting on my desk.  One of my kids left it for me, and I just think it's the sweetest thing. They tried to write, You're beautiful."   It reminded me, that it doesn't take much to make someones day just a little bit better.  I decided I want to leave little notes around the house for the kids as well.  We'll see what they think.  :)

Have a great weekend!
