As the week goes further along we're taking less pictures--that's what happens every year. We took 86 for Thursday. The kids were both at school so that definitely has an impact too.
All summer I have been looking forward to having both kids in school for two days a week. My list of projects is long, my desire for some me time is high and yesterday I finally felt like Hannah was getting more comfortable at school and I was able to enjoy my day a bit more.
Hannah woke up early for her--a little before 7:30. I was just getting in the shower. I had to make LJ get up a little after 8 (I recall that Thursdays are tough for him because he's getting tired from the week). We got off to school on time but I realized I forgot H's water cup. I took that back up to school and happily saw that she wasn't crying anymore (no, she did not see me). I came home and blogged, did laundry and a few other odds and ends before going to pick up Troy for lunch. We went to RePUBlic; I've never been before. It was great to have some us time and enjoy some nice food. On my way home I stopped at Loft (my favorite) and used my 25% off coupon :) Once home, I changed the laundry again (I wish it wasn't such a never ending process), watered the plants, picked up upstairs and had a bit of quiet time before heading up to school. I really hadn't been able to get good pics of either of the classrooms so I went a bit early to try and do that (I got a few). We played on the playground again before coming home. I really like their playground--it's shaded, there aren't any mosquitos (like our yard) and there are friends to play with too. Luke worked on beads and Hannah finished her lunch when we got home. H kept asking to go night, night so I put her in her crib. I folded some laundry, changed the laundry and helped LJ with his beads. After an hour of listening to H just quietly talk to herself I got her up. I truly think she just wanted some alone time. The kids watched Daniel Tiger and I talked to mom. Troy brought Chipotle home with him for dinner. The kids played with him on the floor again and after LJ threw a fit about not winning on the Wii we opted for an early bath time. H went to bed early as she was exhausted and Troy and Luke hung out while I went upstairs to scrap (that is so, so rare these days). T put Luke to bed about 8 and then messed around on his computer with the TV on. I came back downstairs and hung out with him for a while before we both got ready and went to bed.
I don't want to get up
Almost always has pj's unzipped in morning
Don't leave me (death grip)
Game my sis and I play
My favorite pot from the summer
My favorite drink right now
This is what she does when I pick her up. She cries super hard until she's in my arms.
Photo bomb--I was trying to take a pic of me folding laundry
A favorite game right now
Why is getting cleaned up so hard?
Some snuggles with my munchkin
Nice and dry
Hooray for scrap time
Someone didn't want their picture taken
