five on friday

{2} Yesterday was in the mother loving 70s here. It was like being kissed by a unicorn for our winter-worn souls. I'm not exaggerating when I say we went outside after dinner and didn't come back in until it was time for baths. My favorite was when Edith was digging in the garden and got so excited she caught a 'tomato' bug. :) Lest you think I am getting cocky, Ohio is keeping me humble with a chance of snow on Monday.

{3} OMG. I have been wanting a Ring doorbell for ages and they are less than $100 now! I may just pull the trigger!

{4} Our bathroom remodel should start in the next two weeks and I am so excited. My room has been ground zero for the materials and I feel like I am suffocating. I am also entirely over trying to come to agreements on design decisions with Jon--we are both very opinionated and have dramatically different tastes. I keep telling him we could never build a house together because we would end up divorced.

{5} Elden has grown so much over the last year. He's still in preschool and therefore hasn't really worked on reading or writing much--if he asks we help but we haven't wanted to push it because we just want to let him be a kid. The other day he asked me how to spell "dear mom, I hope you feel better." I said that was a lot of words to spell and Jon realized he was holding something in his hand...it was a post-it he had written for me, all on his own, where he attempted to spell that out (Dr Mom I hop u f Bedr). Suffice to say, I melted. Then yesterday he played with our neighbor for over an hour--they took turns playing with his teeball toy and digging in the dirt. I'm not sure whether Elden initiated all this playing but the fact that he was engaging with and talking to another kid was HUGE for him! He was super bummed when he realized the neighbor wouldn't be home during the school day tomorrow.

Linking up with KatieAprilAndreaNarci and Erika!
