Five Friday Favorites

ONE: Little Man has a name!  Not sure I even like sharing this much about him on the Internet, but here it is!
 
TWO: These three are such sweet friends!  We had Ceally, the chocolate lab for four days earlier this week.  One morning, Isaac had left early for a 50 mile bike ride, and I was still sound asleep.  I woke up to Aggie curled around my head, Bailey pressed against my side, and Ceally's head on my feet.  That was pretty much perfect for me!
 
THREE: We've officially become an 'oily family'.  Joining Young Living has been something we've contemplated for years now, and we finally dove in this month.  Our starter kit arrived last night, and I'm so excited to keep learning more about how to be medicine free for the humans and canines in this family!  For example, my friend Courtney had sent me a sample of RC and Peppermint oil a few months ago.  This week I woke up with a nasty, vice-like headache two different mornings.  I applied some peppermint to my temples, the last little bit I had, and by the time I was finished brushing my teeth, my headaches was nearly gone.  This excites me so much!  Not to mention I love using what God has naturally given us to treat ailments.  The research coming out about how oils are helping children with Autism, chronic pain, seasonal allergies, and other issues is just amazing.  I'm NOT opposed to modern medicine, but with all my drug allergies, this just might completely change the status quo for me!  
I was so excited to start exploring that I forgot to take a picture when it still looked neat and tidy!
FOUR: Two dear friends have had babies in the last week and a half, and I can't wait to go meet these precious girls!  I've got to get in all my girly time with them.  Ha!

FIVE: Spring Break is in 2 weeks.  9 1/2 teaching days.  My kids are hanging in their like the troopers that they are, but 6th grade hormones are kicking in, and they need a break from each other.  It's been a long haul since Christmas, and it's time.  I'm so proud of this bunch of over 100 this year, but we have built in breaks for a reason!  They need to recharge as much, if not more, than the adults!  And I need some time in the sun.  It's time for that too!
