Dennie Kids: May 17, 2010

Highlights from today: (click here for pictures)

  • Meeting our church friends at the zoo this morning-Reagan’s friends Ethan and Kaleigh and Graham’s church and school buddy Ruthie were all there.  The highlight was seeing the lions-they were pawing at the glass.  Graham didn’t enjoy it at all, Reagan wanted to be brave but needed Anderson’s hand and Anderson wasn’t too excited about getting close.  Reagan and Anderson learned a valuable lesson: if the glass breaks, you just have to run faster than everyone else!
  • The next zoo highlight was meeting Dad at the zoo.  He was able to see a few animals with us before doing a kid swap so Mom could take Graham to the doctor.  Graham let Dr. Martin look, listen and poke him but he gave her a pretty nasty look!  He was fine and didn’t have an ear infection.  She did prescribe us some medicine just in case we needed it over the next few days
  • Everyone showing up at home and seeing the roofers (here finally).  The constant hammering and banging of the roofers just encouraged the kids to be even louder.  At one time, Mom did forget that there were a zillion people on the roof and she looked at Anderson and said “stop that banging”
  • Mom was a little worried about afternoon naps but thought she would try anyway-and lo and behold it worked.  Campbell slept all afternoon, the boys slept at least 2 hours but Reagan just sat and watched the clock.  The doorbell didn’t even wake them up!
  • Dad came home to bring earplugs (actually, he just brought supper) which Graham devoured-he hadn’t really eaten much the past few days.  Campbell sat and watched everyone eat-she is getting Graham’s cold-watery eyes and a runny nose but she still feels pretty good!
  • Nonna and Pops coming over to stay with the kids while Mom and Dad ran to the gym (shocking, I know but more on that another day).  When Graham found out they had left, he laid in the floor and cried but a bath by Pops made him happy.  Next Anderson said he wanted a bath. 
  • After Nonna and Pops left it was time to start heading to bed and everyone seems to have fallen asleep!…good thing, big day tomorrow!
