A quiet day today. We hosted an improptu sleepover last night and traded kids with the family two doors down. The 8-year-olds slept there and the 4-and 5-year-olds slept here. Played outside for a while, then came in to watch a short video before bed.
This morning I gave the girls breakfast and then everyone played the day away. The big kids came back, the little kids went out, then everyone got back here just in time for a downpour. I whipped up a little mac & cheese for lunch (slim pickings; we haven’t been grocery shopping in over a week) with some fruit, and the kids settled in with Disney Channel.
About 2:15 pm, their mom came over to collect them, prompting a HUGE tantrum from Little Sis. So now, both girls are upstairs napping resting. I might not have enforced it, but the girls have one last dance performance at Idlewild (a local amusement park) tomorrow evening. Not my choice to spend all day at an amusement park and then do hair, makeup and costumes for dance, but…oh well. I’m sure it’ll be fun, right?
