We had a pretty low key weekend. On Friday night we were all in bed just after 8pm. We were all exhausted from the first week of school and George has been working lots of hours at work.
Saturday George took the monkeys to town and ran a few errands while I picked up the house. I think we need to make that a Saturday tradition. They got home just in time for us to switch drivers and the kids and I headed to a birthday party at The Little Gym. Emma and I did a mommy & me class there just before she turned 2 and loved it. We all had a great time and Emma wants to have her 6th birthday party there.
After the party the kids and I ran some errands and then spent a quiet evening at home. George worked from about 1:30pm-1:30am and the kids were so tired that we just stayed home.
Then on Sunday morning I got up with the chickens and did my long run of 9 miles. I have the Women’s Half Marathon coming up in 3 weeks so the past several weekends I’ve been doing 9-10 miles on Saturday or Sunday. Then we went to church. Emma moved up to Trek Town (K-4th) and we moved Hudson up to the 3 & 4 year old class. Both love it!
Then we ran some errands after church and I had to finish sorting/stacking the workbooks for Emma’s teacher. That was a handful! Now I know why teachers ask for parents to help. I couldn’t imagine being a teacher and having to do all of that work at home on top of other work. It probably took me 3 hours to tear out all of the pages and separate.
George ended up going back into work for the night so the kids and I once again had a quiet easy night at home. Thankfully they have both been so good and playing so well together that it was really nice. Emma was exhausted last night and I had them both to asleep in record time!
Today she is riding the bus home for the very first time. It makes so much sense for her to ride the bus. She will be home super fast and Hudson is so excited about seeing her get off the bus. Hopefully I can get a picture!
