All Grins!
(click here for today's pictures)
  • Yesterday while writing the blog, I was a little discouraged about how I thought that the day would go today.  Guess what?  I was pretty much correct!  I will say that the day could have been worse and trust me, we have had some really rough days this school year but today was at least okay!
  • When Robby left, he left laughing at how he thought the day was going to go.  While he was making his lunch, he pointed out that the kids called my name at least 2 dozen times in the span of 10 minutes.  That pretty much continued through out the day-good thing I got a really nice pair of ear plugs for Christmas (kidding, they are on this years Christmas list!)
  • The kids were tired from the weekend but they at least worked on their school.  Anderson and Reagan didn't finish their work until late in the afternoon-I tried to explain to them if they would talk less, then their work would be finished sooner.
  • My sweet Keaton spent most of the morning working on different art projects and was fairly quiet or she was sitting by Whitman watching a Thomas movie.  Last night when I went to bed, I had thought about trying to limit his movie intake-but then I quickly came to my senses!
  • After lunch, we worked on our chores and the kids really helped.  I even had a victory and located a lost tshirt of mine.  That made my day-so much so that I decided to get on the treadmill for a little bit.  And when I was finished with the treadmill, I kicked the kids out of the house.  Actually, I never phrases it like that but Reagan did when she was telling Nonna and Pops about their day.
  • I joined the kids outside and we played soccer until Robby came home.  Two observations about our soccer game-Keaton will be pretty ferocious on the soccer field for a few minutes and Reagan and Anderson smoked Graham and I playing this afternoon.  
  • Robby pushed everyone on the swing for a bit and then we hurried in for showers and supper before Nonna, Pops and Jason came over to celebrate Robby's birthday!  Nonna had made a Snickers Pie and we adorned it with candles and sang Happy Birthday.  
  • Afterwards, Robby opened his presents-including an ice cream scoop...which we might try out in a few minutes!
