Despite a late night in the hammock, B was the first kid up. The kids and Brent always have cereal for breakfast. I'm not as big a fan.
Getting out the door is always a challenge. I took this photo as this is a new ritual in this house. E at the top of the steps with his stuff and clearly having forgotten to close the door. He brought Swoops (the owl), his blanket, and snacks. I brought extra clothes, which we definitely needed :(
I, for various reasons, don't play board games a lot, unless they are cooperative. This one is Forbidden Island and is a cooperative game that E, Chrissie and I played together.
We got stuck in rush hour traffic near home. I just pointed my phone's camera over my shoulder with out looking ---- they look pretty much like what I'd expect (5:45pm)
Home again! I made dinner while the kids play. We had lemon garlic roasted Cod, broccoli (by Brent---which was way more popular than my broccoli), and oranges. E declared that he loves fish! Almost everyone ate it all up and I'm reminded that we really should make it more often (Dinner is done at about 7pm. We thought we would swim this evening, but didn't make it.)
After dinner chores again - this time laundry.
I took tons of pictures of M's bath hair styles. She loved it (7:30pm).
After bathes, we had some more books, snuggles, and then bedtime. We left B attempting to sleep in E's bed. I doubt that lasted long!
Brent is playing games in the Wii after more laundry work. I'm about to delve back in to my book, then bedtime before the last day of summer vacation for the kids.
Side note - I should probably note that I am off work Monday - Wednesday this week, hence all my time to spend on these random adventures. Come Thursday, we'll begin the shift back to more normal routines. Brent's classes started yesterday so he's already taught two classes and a lab along with lots of meetings and other new school year things.
Did you miss day 1? You can find Monday here.
