Kids’ Holiday Program at School

This week seemed kind of crazy.  So crazy that I actually forgot to take Lindy to an ophthalmology appointment on Friday afternoon.  I just noticed tonight that it was on the calendar.  I totally missed it.  I can honestly say that is the first time in 4 years I’ve ever completely skipped an appointment.  Two times I had therapists show up at our house for sessions I had forgotten about but we were home and it was all fine and good.  I’ll have to call tomorrow and see if they charged me for it.  I hope not.

Tuesday we had normal gymnastics and then we went to the mall with Katie and Claire to do a little shopping before some coupons expired.  The kids were wound up and not very well behaved but I got some good deals so it was worth it.  They both fell asleep on the way home so I pulled in the garage and was just going to sit with them in the car for a few more minutes to let them sleep a little longer.  Will started coughing and then woke up and threw up.  It was the same thing he did to Jamie a couple weeks ago.  Woke up coughing and threw up.  He was fine but then we had the fun task of getting throw up out of the car seat. 

Wednesday I got another day away.  Jamie and I headed to Charlotte and met Anna and Lynn at the Southern Christmas Show for some shopping.  We spent 6.5 hours there!  More looking than buying but we got a few things.  The shopping was fun but the drive to and from were not fun.  We drove down in rain and got stopped in traffic.  On the way home we ran into another storm.  It looked so eerie out that we actually called Bob to ask him about any bad weather we should know about.  He told us that there were actually tornado warnings out so we made a detour to his house and waited out the storm.  It was convenient that he’d made dinner so we got a good dinner and then headed out.  We hit more rain in Winston but finally made it home.  I was so glad to get home!  Drew took care of getting the kids to school and picking them up from music class.  He also took them up to the church for a Thanksgiving dinner.  What a dad!

Thursday was the big day for the kids.  It was the kids’ holiday program at their preschool.  Lindy went to Cook from 8-11am and then we headed over to Maple Springs for the program.  Ed, Jamie, Lynn, Anna, and Bob all came to see it.  Last year Will sat like a deer in headlights and didn’t do a thing.  I was totally afraid that Will would do that again and that Lindy would get up and start wandering.  But they actually both did GREAT!!  Will knew all the words and did all the hand movements.  Lindy sat still the whole time and did most of the hand movements and sang some of the words!  We couldn’t have been more proud of them.  They were treated to a Happy Meal at McDonalds by their grandparents afterwards.

Friday, instead of taking Lindy to her appointment, we went out shopping for a new, fake Christmas tree.  We found one but they had to order it and we’ll pick it up Tuesday.  I’m sure Lindy would say it was more fun than getting her eyes dilated.

Saturday we had a home Wake Forest football game that ended up well.  Wake beat Maryland and they became bowl eligible.  Both kids passed out for a little while, which was nice.  ha!  We only have one more football game and then we’re done.  Unless we venture to said bowl game.

Today we had church and then we went with our neighbors to hear the Winston-Salem Community band.   We’ve heard them play once before.  The kids enjoyed the music although they all got a bit restless and we left a little early.  Thankfully the people around us were more entertained by them than annoyed!

That sums up the busy week.  Here comes another busy week!  Happy Thanksgiving!
