Sleepover?

N was scheduled for his first sleepover Friday night at our house. And it all started out well.

We ordered pizza for dinner, the boys played in N's room, we went swimming in the backyard we made smores. And then, it happened. N's friend A said, "I need to go ask my mom something" and since he lives next door, no big deal. Only, he didn't come back. I was headed over to check on him when his mom showed up at the front door. A got nervous and wanted to be home! So, N was EXTREMELY disappointed, but what can you do? They are still very young, so....as a special treat to our two kiddos, we let them start a movie at 9pm and stay up to watch it. This NEVER happens in our house, so it was a big treat!

Saturday I was able to go to a wonderful bridal shower from one of our former students who is all grown up - it was a great time of celebrating their love for one another and starting their lives together. After the shower, we all went to Adamson Lagoon to swim.

Then Saturday night, Lance and I had DATE NIGHT! We went to see Get Smart and then to dinner at Texas Roadhouse (Lance's favorite!)

Today was a day of church and swimming.

And A, the neighbor boy? He ended up spending almost all waking hours with us this weekend. So even though he didn't spend the night, N got lots of friend time, which is really what it's all about!

All in all, a great weekend!!

How cute! I went through a phase where I wouldn't stay away from home, too! Sounds like you made up for it!

I did the same thing several times when I was growing up. I can remember one time vividy, all because of a barbie doll :)

I called my mom in the middle of the night to come get me from a friends house....she came and got me. And it wasn't next door.
