Yes, this is almost a week late. I've been a bit busy...being sick. :/
So, Monday started out normal enough...
Well, if you consider a threat of triple-digit weather in October "normal." :D
I was very glad that after weeks of watching me use the lacing cards, Babycakes finally decided to give it a try himself. :)
We sold the other two boxes rather quickly so we decided to pick up a third box. That way each child would get credit for one.
And, of course, a little violin lesson. :)
Tuesday started out normal enough too...
Then they began to fall.
Had to do my first mid-day pick up of a sick kid ever.
So Spock (of course, who else? :/) came home...
And we spent the rest of the day watching Power Rangers SPD on Netflix.
And discovered this really cool SPD/Battleship connection thanks to imbd.com. :D (As a side note, Power Rangers is not helpful for language development. I'm pretty certain that two days of the stuff set Babycakes back two weeks. :D)
But the world doesn't stop just coz you have sick kids....had to make crazy hats for AWANA Crazy Hat night. :) This is Babycakes' hat.
On Wednesday we didn't even try to get Spock to school. :(
They don't look too thrilled to be going off without their brother, do they?
No pictures, but Babycakes was well enough to go to AWANA with his crazy hat. Spock stayed home and wore his while watching Scarecrow & Mrs King, then crashed very, very early.
But he was up and happy the next morning. I was going to try to take Babycakes on his class field trip but he was super whiny when we stopped by CBTL to get a cup of coffee on the way so I aborted the trip and went to Target where it became obvious he wasn't as recovered as we'd thought when he screamed every time I tried to turn down an aisle. We came home and he went to sleep. :/
This is a morning ritual of sorts. The kids are always glad to see condensation. :D
They were dressed up today coz it was Grandparents' Day at school.
So the grandparents came to see their school and meet teachers and hear them sing, etc, etc, etc. :)
It was also art school day. Here's The Teenager's latest. You can see his other work on his tumblr page.
Braniac on Saturday morning.
On which it was raining...a bad thing when you intended to clean your very dirty car. I did end up getting to clean the inside though, so it wasn't a total loss. :)
And then we had a little Nutcracker rehearsal. The kids are enjoying it immensely. I'm actually enjoying it too. Mainly coz we told them next year they had to choose between Nutcracker and Recital and they chose the former. That means after Nutcracker is over on the 23rd of December, I won't have to take them to another rehearsal until next October. :)
