So, we did everything I had planned yesterday. Plus, V & I baked blueberry muffins for breakfast. And we ended the day with a sleepover.
Today shouldn’t count as a day of break. I try to keep the kids buys and occupied over the summer, but I don’t usually plan a lot for the weekends.
But, today has already been busy! I woke up d this morning bright and early to pick up our basket. I am pretty sure I’ve blogged about the produce co-op we use–check it out! And by the time we were back the girls were awake and asking for pancakes already. After pancakes, I cycled the laundry & washed some dishes and hopped on the treadmill for a few miles. I have not been jogging much. But, I walked 3 miles and that’s good enough for today. Then I made myself somewhat presentable to head out.
The kids and I went to a very cool event today. As most of you know, our oldest boys didn’t come straight to us from their bio-parents. They lived in a shelter for nearly a year before they were placed with us. The shelter that they lived in has gone out of business. But, there are more in the Valley. Today we went to an even to help out with the one that’s on our side of town. The crisis center is pretty freaking amazing. They have an emergency shelter for foster kids who cannot be placed with a foster family right away. They also provide services to families in need–our family has received help from them. I went to an amazing class on bonding issues there a few years ago.
Today’s event was held at a local restaurant that I’d heard of, but knew nothing about–Organ Stop Pizza. And it was way cool. Like the name implies, this restaurant is famous for its pipe organ. If anyone wants to take us there again, we’re accepting invites 😉
We’re back home now… And I am sitting. I should be working on laundry or cleaning or Girl Scout stuff. But, I think I’ll just sit here for a bit instead.
