This morning we brought Quinn to school and then Madden and I went to get an oil change. I was 2000 miles over. Justin said he could feel that it needed an oil change. Apparently he's the car whisperer or something. I didn't notice anything! We got that done, did a little shopping at WalMart, and came home. I like that WalMart is right across from Quinn's school because if I need something in a hurry it's right there- I generally regret going in and wish I just went to Target. Oh well!
We went to lunch with Jamie and Leah so the little kids could play while the big boys were at school. Next year when Quinn and Carson are in kindergarten I think we will be having lots of Madden and Leah playdates.
They carried pennies around for a while until they lost them for good.
We went to get Quinn at school after that. They had a little petting zoo come to the school today. They don't go on any field trips- instead the 'trips' come to them. They've had firetrucks, mailmen, animals- all kinds of stuff. Mrs. Day said that Quinn would not go in the petting area or touch the animals. She didn't want him to miss out so she asked if he would go through if she held him- he said yes.
Madden was jealous and asked if he could get a stamp on his hand too. He went right in the class with Mrs. Day and is now the proud owner of an owl stamp on his hand.
This was in Quinn's folder- graduation pictures!?!! I can't breathe.
Kindergarten round up is in a month. Why is this happening to me?
Madden has been boycotting his nap on school days. It's usually a short one anyway since we get home from school around 3. Instead of naps today we went to Target after school to play with toys and we just couldn't last one more day without the Frozen soundtrack. I was sick of giving up my phone or computer so I could load the songs on youtube. Now we can sing our hearts out in the car.
When I unpacked Quinn's backpack I saw this inside. He's such a ladies man.
Now Quinn is off from school until March 18 for spring break. He said that the day he goes back to school is the day that Frozen comes out on DVD (Technically he calls it a CVD but that's ok). An exciting day for us all!
Thankfully schools all reopened today. It was still freezing but not in a death kind of way. Quinn again wore the one remaining warm sweater type shirt he has. His other one with the leather elbow pads started to unravel.
Madden and I went to Kroger to get the turkey/cheese and to get some stuff for our dinner date with the girls tonight.
Cheryl, my BFF deli lady, gave Madden a sample and it made his life.
Then he twisted my arm and I bought him a donut. He has a convincing face.
We came home and I did really fun things like putting away laundry and cleaning bathrooms while he chowed down. I would have much rather spent the school day glued to Netflix but what can you do. Now that I am all caught up on 5 seasons of Parenthood I need a new show to be addicted to. I am a serial binge watcher. I lost many hours of sleep staying up way too late with Parenthood. I started the new Dallas- It was fine but it hasn't really hooked me yet. This is for sure my life: http://www.buzzfeed.com/ariannarebolini/struggles-of-binge-watching-a-show
After school we had our friends over for playing, pizza, and ice cream!
Audree looking at Wrigley through our filthy door.
We all made our own little pizzas.
We ate our pizzas, cleaned all of that up, and then made a huge mess making ice cream sundaes!
Cerly had equal parts ice cream and sprinkles.
Little Miss Audree was not to be left out and she had some too.
Justin was in Houston yesterday and today. He will be home later tonight. Wrigley stood here waiting for him to come in for a ridiculous amount of time. Finally he gave up and went to bed. Man's best friend for sure. Now I am all set to watch The Little Couple. I have been waiting to see little Zoey for quite some time now :)
My posts thrill tens of readers daily, welcome to the elite club. We just started our "real" life after 5 years in the Army. As a normal civilian I am still figuring out how to tell time without bugle calls and searching for someone to show my ID card to when I buy milk.
