Tuesday was the first day with the big camera and thus there were TONS of photos. Wednesday was a mix of phone and camera. Add I liked a lot of them....
And then a lot of time passes and I took no photos. I mopped the guest bathroom, worked, took Moose for a walk, made lunch, worked some more. Brent had tons of meetings and an interview for the job he has been filling on an interim basis, the kids went to school, etc...
3:15pm - Sitting in the pick up line waiting for E - This is the first pick up line of the week as he has been home sick from school. I realized that I'll only be doing routine afternoon pick up for a couple more weeks after YEARS of daily afternoon pick up. I won't miss it, but I will miss the bonus time with E.
3:18 - E is in the car with a front pack as he is carefully bringing home his Mother's Day gift - A hand print tile. I love hand print crafts!
3:25 pm - E putting away his bag and upnpacking his folders. (Those shorts are just really short, but he was feeling Hawaii today?)
3:51 - E and Moose exploring while we wait for the bus.
3:52 - E staring off into the creek as we wait. I love this area. So beautiful.
4:09pm - I got an MM LaFleur box - this is part of the prep for my trip to DC. The clothes are more expensive than I normally buy, but a really good quality and perfect for my work so I'm slowly adding some pieces here and there for my work wardrobe. M always helps with taking photos so I can see what it looks like.
4:12 - E wanted to see the clothes too, but had way more fun on this scooter than we were having picking standard business attire.... Love him.
4:35 - The kids might like the crate more than Moose - Here they are all involved along with a reminder that we don't shut people in the crate....B is trying to help Moose escape while M & E want Moose to stay in with them.
5:03pm - M & E are helping make more cookies for the support staff (Janitors, Cafeteria workers, Office Staff, etc...). B is working on his Science report again. It is taking up a lot of time every day.
5:18pm - We were planning on family gym night so M has put on her brand new work out attire to prepare.
6:41pm - Brent got home around 6:10 and it was really too late for him to change, get to the gym, and have time to do a worthwhile amount of exercise. So, I left when he arrived to get 20 or so minutes of weights in while I waited to pick up B. It was leg day + my normal 8 min arms circuit. At home, Brent grilled chicken we'd put in to marinade earlier and the rice cooked in the instant pot. Brent and Moose got some play time in outside too. We also had beets for dinner that the kids think taste like potatoes and to me smell like summer as we had them a lot in the summer growing up.
8:03pm - M & E are heading for bed and B is trying to finish rewriting the draft of his science paper. All that mess is M's from a big paper doll crafting adventure this weekend. B has a sunburn from the baseball game which you can sort of see here.
8:06pm - Reading with E - Don't let the Pigeon Stay up late. (Photo by M)
After this, I read a chapter of the Apollo book with B and did 45 minutes of "Deep Stretch" Yoga--- which probably should have been called All the Hip Openers.
11:16pm - Brent is playing video games at the couch - I was reading there next to him. I took this as I headed to bed and took all the inhalers.
