Weekly roundup

I overhead my husband the other night promise the girls that we would have a Friday Family Fort Night/Sleepover. I was hoping they would forget but guest what? They are soooo excited. So last night I asked him if “we” had everything “we” needed for the “Bond Family Fort Night/Sleepover.” He mentioned something about needing to go a few poles at the hardware store.

I’m just going to let you sit with that for a moment.

When you’re ready, please enjoy your weekly roundup.

Update: At the time this posting, the Bond Family Fort Night/Sleepover was suspended due to sibling infighting and the breaking of too many crayons and Ritz crackers. The children have been placed in front of the TV and my husband is pouring himself a drink.  ansonsfort Have a great weekend! xxoo ashley
