This has to have been one of the quietest weeks we have had in awhile. It was actually nice to have the first week back to school and ‘real life’ be uneventful. It gave me a chance to get Christmas decorations packed up and put away. It also allowed the kids to play with all their new Christmas presents.
Drew celebrated his birthday last Sunday, January 2nd. Ed and Jamie came to church, ate a fried chicken lunch with us, hung out, and ate a chili dinner with us. I think Drew enjoyed his day at home, hanging out with his brother, and eating foods he loves.
The kids started back to school fine. I wondered how Lindy would do after a 2 week break, but she was fine. Neither had any problems slipping back into the school routine.
Wednesday we did go to music class. Lindy and Will were the only kids there this week but they still had class. We only have one more week of this session of music class but we are planning to do the next class. They love their class so I think we’ll keep going.
Thursday afternoon we headed back out to our old Stokes County stomping grounds to see a friend from our old church. We had a really nice visit with her and ended up going to get dinner with her. It’s always good to stay in touch with friends, even after you move.
The most fun the kids had this week was getting to go to the Children’s Museum on Saturday afternoon for their friend Berkley’s 4th birthday party. They had snacks and cake, watched Berks open her presents, and then got to go play. They had a blast. They have a new, expanded part with these clear plastic tubes that you put yarn balls or scarfs in and they fly through the tubes. Will played in that part so long. He had so much fun putting in a ball and seeing where it came out!
We are supposed to get more snow tomorrow, a similar storm to what came on Christmas Day. Because we were traveling to Ohio the next day we were NOT excited about that snow and didn’t go out to play in it. Now that we have nothing to do and we aren’t going anywhere, I want snow. Lots and lots of snow! Bring it on! I just hope the freezing rain and ice they are saying might happen at the end of the snow will stay away. Snow is okay, ice is not.
