Change of Heart

I've been trying all day to sit down and write a post. But one thing led to another and I just never got around to it. Now I am in the middle of folding laundry and watching a movie. So I'll keep this short.


 Did you have a good Valentine's Day? We had a little "pinterest" in our day. Starting with heart shaped cinnamon rolls. 
Original idea from here.
Lunch consisted of a heart shaped sandwich too. I spent some time with Afton at her Kindergarten party. I honestly think life doesn't get any better than Kindergarten. They had a little dance, complete with the waltz and some 'YMCA'. Then they returned to the room for a 'high tea party'. Her teacher is on pinterest, so the goodies were 'over the top' adorable :)




 For dinner we attempted the heart shaped biscuits, but honestly they didn't taste so good. Must have been the fact that I did bisquick instead of homemade. Or because we used it like 'playdough' before we baked them.
Sadly, not my biscuits! You can find these 'here'.

Today I was supposed to register Maisy for preschool. Fall registration begins early around here. But have to admit, I chickened out.

 For the past three months I have been absolutely sure she would go. Then last week, something changed. And just like that I was positively sure she would not be going to preschool yet. She's only two! Now that Afton is in elementary school, I see how fast the "sweet days at home" pass. I feel like it's best for us to hold off for another year.



 So we skipped registration and went on a run instead. Maisy ate her breakfast in the jogging stroller and sang to me while I trotted along. Then we played outside in the rain.

What did you do today? Did you change your mind (or your heart) about anything?


PS- Thank you to everyone who linked up to "Cowgirl Up!" this week.

  1. Those cinnamon rolls look soooo good. I'm not domestic at all. I'm great at the drive-thru. Keep your babies as long as you can...I can still see my little boy crying when I dropped him off that first day. He's now 28. I miss the old days.

  2. Thanks for the support Becky. Seems like most of life is spent as a 'grown up'. So school can wait:)

  3. My oldest(3rd grader now)started preschool at 3 1/2 years. His little sister is now that age and like you, I am just not ready to start yet. I love having her here even if we are not doing a thing. Anyway, they have many years of school, why rush it!

  4. Presentation of heart shaped cinnamon rolls and strawberries heart looks appealing. Love cinnamon foods. Your girls are sweet. Kindergarden/nursery days are the most happier to my experience. Kids have no worries, no homeworks.....but still learn things fast. Those are the happy days in house.... I valued it. Enjoy your good times while they's still small.

  6. Probably a good call on the preschool. At least in my experience with all 3 kids, I'd try to put them in too soon only to find out they (or I), wasn't ready for it. Socially usually. Especially Sophia, tried 3 years in a row...she was far too shy. It wasn't until this year (third try) that she was finally ready. :) Enjoy that little sweetie, they are both adorable. Love the sweet rolls/hearts too.

  7. Mmmm. You know I love me some heart-shaped food ;) And I don't blame you one bit for keeping Maisy at home another year. Just the thought of my babies starting school is enough to bring on the waterworks. They're only young once!

  8. I got up really early because it was raining and my dag needed into the house since she is not bright enough to get inside her dog house yet. Then I stayed up because I couldn't sleep. I just read my Bible and started reading blogs and making breakfast. Now I will try to relax. Great decision. These kids are growing up too fast!

  10. I kept my youngest son home one extra year and never regretted it. Just like you said they grow so fast. Now that same son is 21 and I have 12 grandchildren! Wow what a change 10 years can make!!

  11. I'm a prek teacher and I advocate so much for keeping kids at home as long as possible! If you are able and are willing keep her home for a least one more year. You won't regret the time you spend together!
