We still managed to have a fun Saturday even though Mike missed out on the action. Everytime we drive by Shipley's Addie mentions that she wants to go to the donut store, so Saturday morning as soon as everyone was awake we headed on over in our jammies. (Addie was getting better at this point, but still not 100%)
Poor Addie totally looks sick, dazed and congested in this picture :-(.
We then drove up and down streets in Old Katy looking for good places for photo shoots and ended with a stop at the cool train playground over there. By this time it was going on 10am and I was slightly self-conscious of my pajama clad kids running amongst those who were dressed for the day :-).
Then it was home to put Preston down for his nap. The girls and I watched How to Train Your Dragon and painted our nails. They did each other's make-up and I found them reading together on Addie's bed. After a weekend that started out with lots of fighting this was definitely a nice change!
I started preparing for my turn teaching Joy School (for the next FOUR weeks...scary!) and when Preston woke up we moved the preparing outside. I had on the songs that go along with my unit and Addie brought the intruments out to play with while Ella and I worked on our homework.
Ella was so proud that she got Preston on the swing and that he would hold on so she could push him. He thought he was pretty cool too. I was really nervous.
And since I didn't post it before, I wanted to show Ella's finished library craft. I may copy this idea to use during Joy School if we need a time killer.
We're ready for school tomorrow :-)!!!
