I'm feeling much better, although I'm nowhere near 100% yet. Brendan is working upstairs, which allows me to figure out this whole 3 kid logistical thang a little bit before I'm officially on my own on Monday. So far, so good. It will be difficult to keep up with things at first, especially since my
Did you have a nice 4th? We did. Brendan took the big kids to see fireworks on the 3rd and it was loads of fun. (I stayed here with the little one and my sister and we watched some Firefly--that was also loads of fun.) And yesterday, we had a few friends over and they were nice enough to bring food and cook it, too! The kids did a little slip-n-sliding in the backyard (Shhh! Don't tell the Water Police) and we launched a Mentos/Diet Coke geyser just 'cause. After our friends left, Brendan and the big kids lit sparklers on the front porch.
We didn't watch Schoolhouse Rock's America Rock as planned, but that's okay--we'll be watching it a bunch in the next few days. I usually watch America Rock every year on the 4th. In fact, I've been singing the "There's Gonna Be Fireworks" song all day today! Super fun. LB has a couple up on her blog if you need to jog your memory or are waaaaay younger than I am and have no idea what I'm talking about.
I did read John, Paul, George & Ben to Ryan and he liked it a lot. Got most of the jokes, too. It's a cute book, and of course you know we love the tie-in to The Beatles. In fact, Morgan asked if it was a book about The Beatles after she heard the title! Don't you see how well we've taught them?
What are some of your 4th of July traditions? I've hit the highlights of our usual celebrations. The only thing we didn't do this year is get our hotel room in Atlanta to watch the big fireworks show, but we'll do it next year for sure.
Have a nice rest of the weekend!
