Another week closer to summer

I can not wait till the kids are out of school. I want to be able to go outside in the sunshine and enjoy some activities with the kids and with friends.

I have to think back what we did this week now. Hmmm, let me see.

On Wednesday, we had a 12:00 pm appointment, but it was canceled. So I got to stay home for the day. Bill took the girls to gymnastics in the afternoon. Other than that though, we were home and able to do a few things in the house.

Thursday Bill worked for a few hours at the Fire Department. My friend Bobby-Jo came over in the afternoon to hang out. It was great to see her and get caught up on life in general. Ping was at school and the two little ones napped for a short time, so we actually got to chat without interruption. Never long enough though!

Friday was a busy day. I had swimming lessons with Manny at 10:00 am. Bill grabbed Yamira from school and we met up at home. I took Yamira to therapy and then to the library to play with her best friends Sky and Sophie. We were not there for long as I had to pick up Ping and get to a facial appointment Sadly, Ping's feelings were hurt at school. My heart broke for her, but it's going to happen over and over in the next 12 years. I better prepare myself. I went to my facial at 5:00 pm and got home around 7:00 pm. It was wonderful. If you are local and want to know who does a great facial or massage, let me know. I love her. I watched "The Kids Are All Right" on my Netflix cd, so it was an enjoyable evening.

Saturday brought a birthday party and a Daisy event. We dropped Ping off at 1:00 pm for a Daisy tea. We then continued on to our friend Rebecca's home where we celebrated little Noah's birthday. We had a fabulous time. It was nice to meet some others from town. The kids all had a great time playing. Bill picked up Ping at 2:00 pm and brought her back to the house, so she got in on the fun as well. She had a great time at Daisys as well. We then all went directly to Milford for dinner with our friend Trish and her two kids Thomas and Julia. It was great seeing them.

On Sunday, we had two birthday parties to attend. Ping had one for her friend Lindsey at school. It was at a place where you paint wooden things. She had a blast. I have wanted to take her and her brother and sister there for some time, so I was thrilled to see the place. Ping made an adorable penguin, had cake and hung out with her friends. I chatted with some of the other mom's. It is so nice to meet the parents of the kids that Ping goes to school with. Especially since I know all the kids because I volunteer in the classroom a few times a month. We left there and came home. After an hour or so we headed out to Pump It Up for Devon's birthday party. Devon is in Yamira's class. We brought the other two because they had some available room. So it was nice that all three kids could go. They all had a blast. They had some pizza and cake and then we headed on home. The kids went to bed late because we didn't get home till late.

This morning, we woke up late. I set the alarm. I turned to Bill and said "time to take the girls to school." He ignored me and I passed back out. Oh boy. I jumped up at 10 of 8:00 am and said to Bill "GO!!!!!!!" The girls were still in bed. Unbelievable. They never stay in bed. They must have been tired. Off to school they went. Yamira supposedly had a rough day due to not wanting to come off the playground. I am so sad to hear that. I work with her daily on these issues, but some days it just doesn't work. I feel awful for her teachers. I feel awful for the other kids that are disrupted too. I have a feeling it's going to take years to work out these negative behaviors. She has just seen too much in her short life.

At 1:00 pm, I had an appointment to look at a place for the adoption party. The two little ones are sleeping. Usually Yamira doesn't, but she really needed a nap. I think she is overtired. Ping is home playing with Daddy right now. She had a 1/2 day due to professional development for the teachers. I will be bringing the girls to swimming soon. Ping has Daisys and Bill has the Masons tonight! However, I am home and catching up here, so that is a great thing. Not feeling so overwhelmed right now. I am so grateful for that.

Well I hope you have a fabulous week.
