Marathon Day

Wednesdays are usually crazy busy and yesterday was no different. I dropped the kids off at school and then I went to pick up my parents to bring them to the airport. They are in North Carolina visiting my sister, Donna and her family. I had library books to drop off at the Bangor library, so my plan was to drop the books off and then head home, but Noah wanted to be pushed on the swing, so I decided that we would go to the park and then go to the library. The park was wet, but I have a towel in my car for that reason, so we dried off the swings and slides and had fun! The park we went to just got some new wood chips, but it was more like sawdust. What a mess! That was not enjoyable, but with our towel, we were able to clean up before we went to the library. The kids had a lot of fun at the last story time at the Bangor library, so we decided to stick around for that after we dropped off our books. The theme at story time yesterday was birthdays, so the kids listened to birthday books, sang some songs, helped to open a birthday box with spider rings in it, colored birthday cards, and ate a cracker on the way out. Another fun story time!

We had a little bit of down time at home before it was time to pick up the kids from school. Before getting the kids, I picked up a couple of pizzas to have for dinner. We headed to Old Town to catch the second half of Zoe's game. I had planned to bring everyone with me to church after the game for Cub Scouts, Young Women's, and Activity Days, but Matt met me in Old Town and he took Noah home with him. It worked out well to have Zach & Kate with me because only 1 cub scout in my den was there. I kept the kids moving with different activities such as playing catch, doing somersaults, walking like different animals, learning basketball passes, and playing monkey in the middle. Kai & Koa joined us for monkey in the middle. There were no complaints of being bored!

We were all exhausted when we got home last night! I am going to enjoy our rainy home day and evening today. Zoe, Emily, & Eleanor are supposed to have soccer practice this afternoon, but I suspect the rain is going to allow us to just be home. :-)
