One of the best things about waking up too early, after staying up too late, is knowing that Hannah is already up and I can catch up with her through a few texts. That’s how my morning started today.
Yesterday Russ and I found ourselves in the very unusual position of having only three children with us. I hadn’t made any big plans, and the ones I had were loosely formed in my mind. The one plan we had was to take the younger kids swimming, which we didn’t do. Then a lovely invitation arrived on my Facebook page, and before we knew it, we were at a fabulous party having a delightful time.
We caught up with friends, including some we rarely see, while the kids ran and played with the 30 other kids there. The food was delicious and plentiful, games for the kids were hilarious, and the fireworks were downright fantastic – and just a wee bit unnerving for this slightly safety-focused mom. The kids loved every second of it.
Eby has a case of swimmers’s ear which I’m treating with drops made up of equal parts water and white vinegar. I’m hoping to get it turned around quickly since the pool is like heaven for my boy with sensory processing challenges.
Sunshine and I are packing her things for Girl Scout camp. While the other girls have gotten to go to special camps, Sunshine hasn’t had those opportunities; my niece (who is a camp counselor) wants to give Sunshine a special camp experience too. It is very thoughtful of her and Sunshine is super excited.
How did you spend the Fourth of July?
