Will you let me sleep???
Highlights from today: (Click here for pictures)
  • The plan for the morning was breakfast and then school.  All went very well even school.  We did our calendar board at the table and things went surprisingly well.  And the highlight of Reagan’s school day was getting to work on her beads that I bought her at ikea. 
  • I helped the kids load up a large diaper box of toys to donate.  They did pretty good and surprisingly much better than I expected picking things out to donate.  Of course, with that gone it still doesn’t even make a dent in the plethora of toys around here.  Maybe we can load up another box soon (or maybe I will load up a box some night while they are sleeping)
  • All Graham could think about this morning was going to Ms. Tammys-I had an appointment at 1:30 and every time I walked to the garage, picked up a bag or opened the fridge he asked if it was time to go.  Finally it was time to go and then kids did very well (yes, it helped that I had my spoon in my bag, Ms. Tammy had suckers and I also had juice boxes in the car).  Actually, they were perfect-they just sat and colored until time to go.
  • Back at home it was laundry and then nap time.  Reagan was the first one up but everyone else slept until Robby came home and we woke them up. Supper and then everyone stayed with Robby while I ran to the grocery store to pick up a few essentials (i.e. milk-for the kids and ice cream-for me). 
  • Tonight as we set down on the couch, we heard the dreaded “Mommy, I need to tell you something.”  Anderson was sitting up on his bed and almost in tears.  He said that the ceiling was falling down on him and getting into his eyes.  I checked but didn’t see anything and asked if he had touched the ceiling.  All was well when I pulled the covers over his head and told him that Robby would check the ceiling in the morning.
