April 11, 2023-Happy 10th Birthday (party) Whitman!

(click for today's pictures) 

  • I woke up at 1 this morning having crazy dreams. I did get up and go to the bathroom in hopes that I wouldn't keep dreaming the same dream. Thankfully, I did move on to other dreams-I believe my first dream last night was about an animal on me-like the arm of an octopus stuck to me but also crawling around.
  • I am not sure that I slept too incredibly well because of my dreams. Maybe I shouldn't have eaten that ice cream last night. However, tonight I have had 2 servings of huge cookie cake so I am certain that I will have some crazy dreams tonight.
  • We did our school stuff today. Just a few more weeks-not that I am counting down the days at all! (Seriously, I am certainly counting down the days for sure. Not becuase  I am ready for school to be over becuase I love the routine of school. I am ready for school to be over so I can massively clean the school room and the school room closet. Plus getting school ready for next year always makes me just plain giddy.)
  • Reagan, Anderson, and Graham all had classes this morning. Whitman wasn't as motivated today-he has rediscovered his magnets and played with them constantly. It is hard to write anything down when you have 7 magnets in your hands. He just about made me loose my cool.
  • At lunch Robby and I ran to pick up a few things including Whitman's cookie cake from Sams. I was able to walk on the treadmill for a bit, but soon the afternoon was over, and Robby was leaving again to pick up pizza.
  • Soon Whitman's buddies arrived for his birthday party. They all got there at 5 which gave us enough time to eat some pizza, open presents (Simon says game, water gun, and card game and a sciencey kit) and then cookie cake before it was time to leave.
  • We took the birthday boy, his friends, and the big boys to see the Mario Bros. movie. It was a fairly full theater so that added to the excitment. We passed out some water (that we snuck in) along with some popcorn. The boys must have been very interested because no one had to go to the bathroom the entire time.
  • After the movie, we dropped everyone off. The kids starting playing with the Simon Game-it seems that Anderson might be a pro at it.
