Saturday, Jan 30;
We start the day with Mr C's basketball game at 9am. Marc and Miss R attend this game. Mr C makes a basket and is really enjoying this sport. Next is Miss M's basketball game at 10:05am. Heather and Mr N attend this game. It's our turn to bring snack and I forgot. We stop at Walgreens to grab something quick. Quick means pricey and it ends up costing $15 for gatorade and fiber bars. I really should plan ahead. Anyway, Miss M is getting the hang of the game, but isn't sure she enjoys it. We will keep working with her and see how she feels next year before sign ups. I spend the majority of the game talking to another Mom on our school's PTSA Board about upcoming events.
Afterwards, we head home, everyone changes clothes and we leave for a birthday party that starts at 12:30pm. We didn't buy a gift ahead of time (I am a poor planner) and Marc stopped on the way home from Mr. C's basketball game to let Miss R pick out a present for her friend. We get to Pump It Up right at 12:30 and the kids spend the next 2 hours burning up the last of their energy and eating cake!
Finally, we head home again. Miss M gets picked up by Grandma to spend the night at her house. We plan a living room sleepover with the other kids. We have deer sausage and eggs for dinner and then mostly lay down to relax and watch "Sherlock Holmes". It is a great movie, but the kids can't hold still and I'm sure I missed quite a bit of the dialogue.
A long, fun filled Saturday is complete!
