7 Quick Takes Friday (Vol.8)


I had planned on being lazy about blogging this week, then @E1_i_says mentioned me as blog he enjoys on Twitter and my good friend Christi complained about no Wordless Wednesday post.  People read and enjoy me blog.  Huh.  Who knew? 


I was going to correct that typo in One,"me blog", but I decided I like it that way.  


I'm listening to the Irish channel on DirecTV.  I don't have a good reason for this.  Just felt like it.


We had two geocaching adventures this week, both to caches that had eluded us the first try.  The first one was hidden in a really clever way, but not really hidden at all when you think about it.  Sorry.  I can't elaborate.  It's against the geocacher's code.  If I knew how to encrypt this post, I would tell you all about it!  The other one we found had been muggled the first time we went looking, but it was back and I found it in about 3 seconds.  It was full of Silly Bandz, so you know that was a good one!


This week was Andy's turn to drop the library books through the outside book drop.  He was all smiles and giggles the whole time.  It's funny what makes kids happy.  Just look at that smile! 


Today was Andy's first day of Kindergarten.  This is a whole post in itself, but I just want to commemorate the day right here in Quick Takes because it might be a while before I have time to write about how much I love my boy and how heartbreaking it is to let him go.  I'm tearing up just thinking about it.  Why must my babies grow up?  Why can't they stay tied to my apron strings forever?  Only a mother can truly understand when I say, "Would you leave me alone for 5 seconds!" and then cry when they do.


Quick! I must think of something to make me laugh because I literally have tears streaming down my face from that 5 sentence post.......Drats! I can't think of anything funny!  Oh! Here.  This isn't the one I wanted (It's not working for some reason), but I love this one too.  This is Andy and Renee ages 2 and 1, respectively.

  1. I think number 3 is responsible for 2

    Your daughter is so incredibly adorable in the last two photos on #4.

    are you using the lite version of the geocache app, or did you pony up for the full version?

  2. Still using the lite version. Lat I checked the $10 app reviews weren't good. And this one pulls up easy ones, so, it's good enough for now.

    Thank you and Thank you.

  3. Dear Mary, I love your Blog. All of this is new to me, but it is fun to learn.
    This gives me so much hope for the future...I had no idea there were so many good catholic sites and Bloggers. love Aunt Mary

  4. I think I'm going to have to try this geocaching thing: sounds great.

    And I totally get #6.

  8. I am so anticipating kindergarten next fall. I love your sentiment about leaving me alone and then crying when they really do, lol!
