When I got home at 11 last night, Ethan was still up playing the Wii with Braxton! (Ash was sleeping over at Druw’s and Emmy was sleeping over at Jayda’s). Then, he woke up at 4 am with achy legs. I was so tired, I just pulled him into bed with me and rubbed his little shins until we both fell asleep again. So here he is all cuddled up this morning. I DID NOT want to get out of bed. I cannot even express how much I love this little guy. It HURTS how much I love him.
Alas! There were so many things I had to do, I forced myself up at 7:45 ON A SATURDAY!!! 🙁 We went to the church to do some emergency prep canning. We canned some candy, pretzels and nuts to add to our boring assortment of rice and flour. YAY!!!!
The kids have rediscovered the Wii!!!! I am SOOOOOO happy!!!! I love Super Mario Bros, Mario Cart and all the innocent games it offers. (I don’t LOVE Halo and the skating, car racing games on the XBox) So anyhoo, YAY!!!
However, I’m not a huge fan of video games all day long. So after lunch I forced the kids to go swimming. Ashton and Annie were the only ones excited to go. Ethan could play video games ALL DAY and Emmy only got happy after we found out Tenley could come with us.
We brought Druw with us, of course. I seriously cannot imagine life without Druw. These guys might be closer than real brothers because they don’t ever fight and they know days without each other around and MISS each other. So they don’t really take each other for granted, as you might with a sibling.
Everyone had a great time and then played on the playground for a while. We got Frosty’s on the way home. Then all the friends hung out some more until bedtime. I put Annie in bed and then went to the store, then we watched “The Karate Kid”. It was a great day but I miss Josh TONS!!!!!!
