We went to my Grandparents house yesterday for our annual apple picking extravaganza.
We had a dump truck of black dirt delivered on Monday afternoon to try to level out our bare spot in the front yard. The kids were hilarious running around barefoot. I realized how little they go without shoes on outside. Comments like, “Oooo, I love how the black dirt squishes between my toes.”
“I love getting so dirty, ya know boys get dirty – girls really don’t like to get dirty.”
Jack had a lot of fun at Patrick and Joy’s wedding tonight. So much so , that he fell asleep fully dressed.
Oh wait…I found another one who fell asleep in the hallway.
I (Carl) took Jack and Max on a special date yesterday and they nearly finished off a pizza by themselves. Then they washed it down with some Starbucks.
We’re in for some serious grocery bills for the next several years.
“When I am the babysitter, I am going to make all the rules. ‘Like, you don’t have to eat all your food.’ Oh wait, I don’t want to babysit because that would be boring.”
Me: “Yay – your done with math. You can check it off your list.”
Lydia: “Math is so far off my list. It just fell off.”
That is how much my sweet Lydia “loves” math. I am praying I can get her through consumer math by the time she leaves the house. I have a very strong feeling that Calculus will not be on her transcript. Who knows maybe when math becomes all letters again, maybe she will like it.
