It has gone by so fast.
A week at home with our four youngest while Sam and our oldest daughter are in Mexico.
I surprised the kids by taking them to a performance of Willy Wonka at a local play. They loved it and I knew that it was one of those stretching moments...me and four kids all by m.y.s.e.l.f.
It was fun.
I was also able to sneak away one evening for a few hours. I did some window shopping at Kirklands and found a colorful owl on clearance. I'm not one for filling our yard with decor (other than flowers) but this little owl found a special place to perch itself in a tree.
You see this week we have also been working on a very special project.
A secret mission, so to speak...a mission called "Surprise Daddy!"
Everybody has played a part.
Many hours have been spent outside.
It will be fun to show you the transformation next week. At this point my lips are sealed since I am sure that Sam will be catching up on the blog during some layovers on their trip back. I'm proud to say that he is my number one fan.
I wouldn't want to ruin the surprise before he got home.
I guess only Mr. Owl knows exactly what has happened and his lips are sealed. :-)
