Aidan woke up at 5:30am for a bottle and some cuddling. I laid him back down around 6am and decided I could use another hour of sleep, but then Ava woke up and called for me until I ran down the hall to get her. I didn't want her to wake up the other girls. It was only 6:15am so I laid her down in my bed and we both dozed for another hour, then Aidan was fussy so I took both of them downstairs with me and made my coffee.
The other girls didn't get up until after 8:30am. I just love summer! I sat down at my computer and made our summer weekly schedules and our weekly menus for the next 3 weeks. I like to have a schedule so the girls know what is coming up during the day, we don't have to stick to it totally, but it helps me plan and make sure I don't forget anything. I post the schedules and the menus on the refrigerator so the kids can see them and not have to constantly ask, "What's for dinner?" a million times!
We were going to go to the park today, and tomorrow we were supposed to go to the library to get registered for their summer reading program. Since our subdivisions pool is closed until Saturday I did n;t have swimming on our list of things to do. We took Aidan to his Dr appointment and then we went to the library where each girl got one book from a reading list I made for them and then got to choose one book on their own. Then we went to the park to play for a little while. I sat in the car with Aidan, firstly because it is really stinkin hot! And secondly because I have really bad allergies and it was windy and that is a bad combination for me.
While I was in the car I got an email from our homeowners association, they have decided to open the pool as of tomorrow!!! Yay!! I am so happy! The girls were so excited when I told them, though it will be really cold when we go, I don't care, I love to swim and the chlorine helps keep my allergies at bay!
We came home and I made Potstickers with Stirfry Veggies and white rice for dinner. Then the girls all went back outside and I let them put the sprinklers on. I sat outside with them for a little while but my eyes were getting pretty itchy, my neighbor stopped by and asked me if there was anything wrong.
I am going to get the girls settled into bed around 9pm tonight and then Randy is going to stay here while I go to WalMart to get the grocery shopping done. It's hard to take them all with me now. We have to push 3 carts! One with Aidan in the basket, one with Ava Marie in the seat and then a third one so we can fit all of the groceries in it. Katy and I can push the carts, but neither Madyson nor Mackenzie can see over the top yet! And let's face it, it is just easier to go on your own!
Gotta go and check out the new Bachlorette show!!
