As you may remember (but probably not!) from my June goals post last week (see it here), one of the things I wanted to do was "Weed and plant the front bed." So Saturday morning that was first on my list.
We also worked on "Get all the dandelions out of our yard and MOW THE LAWN," at least in the front yard. The kids did a fairly good job of picking dandelions and not getting too distracted. Except for a few times! Ha!
Since Dave still has a bad back, he made waffles for when we hosted his parents and niece for brunch, then he cleaned up and made two salads for our supper that night. Yum! And I have to say, it was a treat to get out of the kitchen for awhile :) (Due to Dave's work schedule, I end up doing most of the cooking, so it's nice to have a break.)

If you read the description, you will see why I (may have) shrieked with glee, and grabbed this book for my TBR in Kenya pile. And best of all, I can leave it behind :)
One of Dave's goals for this weekend was that the kids not feel too rushed and that they just had time to do what they wanted. Since Sam compiled a five page fantasy baseball team (with both current and historical players), I would say that that goal was also achieved!
