Learning to tie my shoes
with Grannymom!
Highlights from today:  (click here for pictures)
  • School morning this morning and it was Z day so Reagan and her class had to wear black and white (black and white for zebra).  She was so proud to get to wear a black and white check dress even though it was quite chilly this morning in a sleeveless dress.  Her jacket probably came in handy!
  • Anderson reported about his school day and said that Ms. Wendolyn “took a little nap.”  I doubted him but he held firm to his story but did eventually say that he was kidding.  Reagan said that she went to chapel and one of the preacher men talked.  Anderson said that he was someone that talked in big church and then Reagan added but he was “real old.”
  • On the other side of town, Robby dropped Graham off and he did great. He had been doing really well for a few weeks and then went back to his old kicking and screaming ways.  He was also wearing big boy underwear (per his teacher’s request) and stayed dry all day long.  I could not believe it-even during nap.  That is pretty amazing to me-but he probably sleeps a lot less and a lot lighter on school days.  Campbell had a good day and her teachers were pretty impressed that she walked all the way across the room.
  • Reagan and Anderson had spent the afternoon with Grannymom and after a round of circus, kickball and hide and seek it was time to head home.  Graham stood in the back of the truck and said that he was going to stay at Grannymom’s house “forever and ever”  I thought that after we drove around the block he would be ready to come with us but when we came back around the bend he was still smiling and waving at us.  Grannymom said that she would bring him home in a bit and we headed home.  This caused Reagan and Anderson to get upset-but since they had spent the afternoon with Grannymom and Grandpa, Graham needed his turn.
  • Graham enjoyed swinging for awhile and then he told Grannymom that he was ready to go home so he made it back home before Campbell even fell asleep for her nap-which she never really did because Graham was insistent that he go to the bathroom that Campbell was sleeping in.  I tried to stop him but he was pretty persistent and how could you sleep with someone banging on your door. 
  • We all ended up watching a bit of a Mickey movie and I might have just closed my eyes when I heard a scream-Graham had a cushion on the steps and Campbell was at the bottom crying.  The boy was probably trying to ride down the steps on a cushion and Campbell got in the way.  She was fine after some cuddling and soon it was time for Robby to come home.
  • Since Graham had done so well at school, his prize was getting to go to McDonalds to eat and then go to Grannymom’s house.  Robby and Grandpa had lots of projects (some still unfinished) to work on while Grannymom had to entertain everyone.  When I came home from my Bunko dinner, everyone was still gone, so I drove over to where the party was.
  • Around 9:30, Graham was ready to drink his milk and climb in a lap.  Campbell even laid her head on the floor a few times.  Reagan and Anderson were still going strong.  We finally made it home about 10 and had some pretty tired kiddos!
