I have been so busy with a few things going on around our house lately. Lucy in the town play the Wizard of Oz, doing my Relief Society calling of Weekday Relief Society meetings, Setting up spring basketball for Alden, planning some Easter plans for our family, and just general life. I’m glad that I took the chance yesterday to document our lives even when they are busy, or maybe especially when they are. This was our Tuesday.
At our house smoothies happen almost daily. Sometimes a couple of times a day. Oliver and Norah are usually the ones asking. And since I can sneak in lots of healthy things I think it’s great. Some days I don’t feel like doing it but I always try to say yes. They usually will ask for a specific color for the smoothie to be too. Colors like “a little bit pinkish and a little bit orangeish”. Today Ollie was going to fill it with fruit and Norah was waiting to turn on the machine.
Yesterday was a really really long day for Lucy starting before 630am and being up until almost 1130. So I totally let her sleep in this morning and catch up. She had a morning field trip to calgary for school and then play practice at night. If she didn’t do so good in school I would have maybe hesitated to let her sleep in but it’s not the case at all. So she slept until 10:30 when I when down and woke her up.
Morning yoga makes my back pain way more manageable. I should be more consistent in doing it since I know that. But some days laziness or busy-iness get in the way.
Ollie found the whip cream dispenser when rooting around in the fridge and begged for some whip cream. And then promptly spit most of it out onto the floor. HA! At least I was fun for a minute.
Pre-shower, laundry folding while trying to distract the littles on my bed. Soooooo real life.
The highlight of the trip to the local grocery store (the Merc) is always the free cookie for my kids. The bakery ladies are always so sweet to my kids and we all love it.
A few times a day Norah will come over and ask for a snuggle with her “bottle” (zippy) and soother. And I love it every time.
After school snacks for Eli. I wasn’t home to stop him for sneaking cereal. Pretty much we’d need a pad lock on the cereal to slow down the amount he eats daily (and nightly).
After school one or two kids usually knocks on the front door asking to play. Karsen used to play more with Eli but lately he plays with Oliver and Norah. And we love having him come over.
Playing didn’t go well for Eli.
Play practice for Lucy and Ava Baldry. They were discussing how close of cousins they were the whole time I had them in the van.
Chicken cordon blu casserole for dinner in my new fancy Le Creuset pan. Eli and Alden were both feeling sick, Lucy was at play practice and the littles wouldn’t eat it. So it was just for me and dad basically.
Our day kept going until quite late with play dress rehearsal and Bishopric for dad. A busy good day.
