Sometimes things don’t always go as planned. Especially when kids and erratic weather are involved. And that’s okay.
Monday, Gav had a Trike-a-thon at school and even though he kept telling me he had a tummy ache before school, he still wanted to go. He kept saying the night before, “The trike-a-thon is tomorrow, awesome sauce!!” Seriously.
So, I took him and I was there too, helping with snacks. After about 6 laps and denial of the cookies we had for post-lap snack, I knew he was not himself. He came home with me and rested. But then that afternoon he was back to himself (oh boy was he!). No idea what was wrong with him but sometimes you just need a break and well, have a tummy ache.
I’d planned to go running errands today and to buy B something to wear for his First Communion but they cancelled school due to rain. Yes, I said RAIN. We did have some area flooding last week and school was even delayed last Tuesday because of bus issues. So I figure they just wanted to take precautions in case the buses had issues again. But still. It’s rain people.
Anyway, we had a p.j. day here while it well, rained. And I got an great outfit for B on Zulily. Internet shopping is all good too, yes?
In the morning the boys argued over Legos and we watched a movie (or two) and had a snacky lunch and just hung out. And then in the afternoon I opened the garage to go get the mail and next thing I knew, K was in the driveway with her rain boots on (she put them on herself) and p.j.s and jumping in the puddles. I think she was just so excited to be outside!! The fresh air was nice, I have to admit.
She was soaked by the time it was all over (it was still lightly raining) so around 4 p.m. she put on some regular clothes.
Yes, it was that kinda day.
