Dennie Kids: June 21, 2010

Highlights from today: (click here for pictures)

  • Campbell celebrating her 6 month birthday by sleeping all night (again).  We are on a few nights streak and doing well (except that Mom has gotten used to waking up in the middle of the night and feels like her night is shorter when she wakes up and it is morning time)
  • Dad leaving for work and everyone was in tears when he left (even Mom-kidding, kind of) 
  • Mom passing out “Getting Ready” list which had all of the tasks for Reagan and Anderson to get ready (so she could stop saying “brush your teeth” “put your clothes up” and “blah blah blah”  Reagan loved checking off each tasks and even asked for a night time list.  Anderson did the first few and then just sat in the floor saying he was reading his list
  • Breakfast (frozen waffles and then toast with syrup), a few stories and some quick work in our workbooks
  • Grannymom and Lilly coming over to see our butterflies-we had 2 this morning, 1 emerged while Lilly was here and one came out later today.  The kids are pretty intrigued by them (briefly).  We fed them their sugar water and now Mom is counting down the days until we can release them (since she doesn’t want them to die in the cage)
  • Dad stopping by for lunch and we had letters sandwiches for lunch, watched a few movies and then took naps.  Reagan never went to sleep and just counted down the time until it was time to wake up.  Campbell takes her naps near Mom on the couch.
  • Finishing up our letter Bs-Grannymom brought us sand and shells from her trip so we made a beach for B.  (and now Mom has sand all over her kitchen and even had some sand in her sandwich tonight)
  • Everyone up and one child spent his afternoon screaming at Mom-screaming for milk, screaming for his turn on the treadmill and then screaming for his water when Mom took it away (he likes to spit it out!)
  • Before supper, Mom let us play with noodles and use them in the dump trucks-oh, we had fun!
  • Jason, Nonna and Pops coming over to play for one last Monday night (while Mom and Dad went to the gym).  We played cars, games, balls and lots more stuff-Pops is always tired when he leaves here!
  • Graham and Campbell going to bed in the same room and it worked fairly well while Reagan, Anderson and Jason watched one movie and looked at planets on Jason’s phone until bedtime
