5 on Friday

After taking a break from the last 5 on Friday, I'm back!

Let's start with a picture of a baby that's not mine. I saw this online somewhere this week and for some reason it just tickled me SO much.

I have to give my husband a little shout out. I was out of town one night last week for work and I'll be gone again pretty much all next week. He's been stepping up to the plate, and jumping right in. Bonus? The kids survived. And Jack got a bath...even if it was in the kitchen sink. You can tell Jack hated it. Not.

I bought all the ingredients to make these Strawberry Shortcake Bars from Iowa Girl Eats awhile ago, but I haven't gotten around to making them. I'm going to carve out some time on Sunday to whip up a batch. My grocery store didn't have dehydrated strawberries though so mine will be a mixture of cranberries and blueberries.

Ben started a new school a few weeks ago and to say we love it is an understatement. I'll share why we made the switch in the upcoming weeks, but Ben learns SO much more and is actually excited to go to school. One of the best parts? His teacher is a girl J went to school with growing up. J grew up in a very small town so the chance of this happening is pretty crazy. It's pretty good reassurance that we're in the right place, ya know? 

I know everyone is busy and I can't stand those people who are always talking about how busy they are. But you guys, things are crazy busy. We have something going on every weekend from now until July. Not to mention, next week I'll be on a work trip for 4 days and 3 nights. I've never been away from Jack longer than a night and I'm most worried that he's going to freak out, especially at bedtime. Or I could be completely wrong and the boys will change the locks. Ben's like a little adult and pretty darn independent so I'm not as worried about him. Plus no mommy=more Cheetos and Wii time.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I'm doing an autism walk on Saturday morning and a fun 5k Glow Run Saturday night followed by my dad's birthday on Sunday. 

What are your plans?
