I woke up at 6:15 to very insistent banging noises from the monitor. The big kids were still asleep (and required to stay in their room until 6:30. I snuggled E for about 45 minutes before other people appeared. Then Brent helped the bigs through breakfast and we snuggled.
I am working on making healthy more whole foods and decided to make these Lentil Ricotta "meatballs" for dinner. So during my lunch break I made ricotta (seriously, it takes no time) and set the lentils to boil. The good news is that the myfitnesspal ap lets you import recipes using the url and get the nutrition data, which made this great.
Picked up the kids and got the car washed (sunny day + NPR)
B arrived and we spent the better part of 1/2 an hour playing soccer. B took some pics of me, which I like.
I checked on E. He was doing donkey kicks in his bed. He is, of course "Mr. Two Blankets" and insisted both blankets and Mario come with him. I started to make dinner while the kids folded clothes and then played.
Minecraft - of course!
Dinner! I thought the lentil meatballs were really good.
E joined M and I for dollhouse adventures.
This door seems to always be open, and mostly be chaotic, but here it is today. Miraculously, everyone has winter coats now so I doubt it will be a cold winter.
I did baths today (unusual) while Brent played with the kids. It was a fun switch.
It was a calm, quiet evening at home which is almost unusual here :) The craziness will certainly pick up by the weekend.
