Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulet! (Let the Good Times Roll!)

Day 273 of 365- September 29th What a day the Peterson clan had today!  Honestly, we couldn’t have had a more “Louisianan” experience if we tried!  We traveled across the Mississippi River to the small town of Pierre Part, also known as the place where the TV show, Swamp People, is filmed.  One of Adam’s co-workers was hosting a crab boil.  The location was unreal!  His “camp,” as people like to call them, was situated right on the river with huge cypress trees covered in Spanish moss as far as the eye could see.  There were 30 dozen blue crab waiting...

A Week at a Glance

Day 267 of 365- September 23rd Adam had a rough day today.  By the time we got home from church, he was sick.  Horribly sick.  Turns out he had food poisoning and it knocked him out for a couple days.  So the boys and I had a laid back Sunday afternoon as we tried to fill our afternoon with quiet activities.  We ended up in the game room where I was treated to a mini piano recital.  Sumner & Jonah have been taking lessons with their new teacher for a couple months now and really doing well.  What a treat it is to see them enjoy music, something near and dear to Adam and I! And...

Catching Up

Day 260 of 365- September 16th Jonah used some of his birthday money to buy a new Lego set (surprising, I know!).  You gotta love how legos can keep 3 boys occupied with laughter and creativity. Needless to say, they were all thrilled with Jonah’s purchase.   Day 261 of 365- September 17th This year, more than any year before, we are focusing on handwriting.  Sumner and Jonah have never enjoyed handwriting and the battle for neat handwriting was one I never really wanted to fight.  At the beginning of the school year, I informed them that everything would be in cursive.  They...

Family Day at the Waterpark

Day 259 of 365- September 15th Adam’s work rented out the local amusement/water park for all of the employees and their families.  The boys have been looking forward to this for months and they were not disappointed!  We spent the entire day on the rides, only breaking for lunch.  Everyone was exhausted by the end but the day was full and we had a great time! Can you spot all three of them? Sumner & Jonah are at the top. With this ride, I implemented a new rule.  Mommy has to watch the ride BEFORE agreeing to go on it. Oh my goodness… I thought I was going to be...
