Today for breakfast we had cinamon toast and strawberries. Little Charlotte is always the last one to leave the table.
Hannah made Ruby “fancy”
This activity was loud
This was one of the few times today that Aylah and Nathan actually played well together
Looking at chickens.
Time for a mid-morning snack. Henry and Charlotte liked to play peek-a-boo under the table
After the babies woke up from their naps we went outside and played until dinner. They liked splashing in the little pool.
My help today was Mama Jo and her neighbor, Cindy. Once again, I couldn’t have done it without them. Among other things, Cindy played several board games with Nathan to keep him from melting down and Mama Jo brought pimento cheese sandwiches for lunch and a delicious roast for dinner.
After the pool, we broke out the sprinklers.
Then the bubble wands.
Then the balance beam.
Then what started out as painting with water turned into paiting each other with sidewalk chalk.
Hannah labeled everyone on their backs.
When Scott got home around 5:30 we ate dinner outside and then did bathtime while Cindy picked up the backyard and Mama Jo watched kids in the tubs while Scott and I ran back and forth bathing, rinsing and drying off in all three bathrooms. Then our help left us for some well deserves Joe T margaritas!!
But then we called in more reinforcements!! Mike got in around seven and will be with us tomorrow!
