 This week seems to have gone at a snail's pace and I'm so glad tomorrow is Friday! 

Since this picture was taken, she has had about 3 inches cut off her hair and some layers put in.  It looks SO much better!

This little girl has had a good week at school.  About 4 months ago, she was having a hard time with her school work.  Her teachers said that she just wanted to scribble scrabble on her paper instead of sit down and actually pay attention to what they wanted her to do.  Of course, in true Mary Beth fashion, I begin to freak out b/c she isn't tracing her letters and writing her name like everyone else. I just wanted her to keep up with her classmates.  However, this little girl is as stubborn as they come.  She just wasn't interested in her schoolwork, therefore, she wasn't going to do it.  Simple as that (just like her daddy).  Several months later, something clicked and now she is doing great with her tracing and writing her name...She got all smiley faces this week!  She's just trying to teach her mommy not to freak out and she will do things in her own timing.

This may not look like much to anyone else, but to me, it's perfection!

I can't believe Jack will be 6 months old at the end of this month!  It blows my mind!  He is rolling all over the place.  He's SO CLOSE to sitting up on his own.  Two little teethies are about to come in as well.  Once he gets something in his hand, he automatically puts it in his mouth.  I will do his 6 month update next week.

Something monumental happened this week...we cut off our cable.  Crazy, I know.  It has only been off since Monday and so far so good!  We already had Netflix and Amazon Prime subscriptions that we were paying for on top of our cable bill, so we have just been watching those instead.  We plan on buying a Roku next week to give us even more options.  Doing this is saving us about $100/month and i'm super excited about that!  I asked Brad today what else could we do away with to save some more money - ha!

 My best friend is coming into town tomorrow and I can't wait to spend some time with her on Saturday!  I hope y'all have a great weekend!
