hallie is in third grade, broken wrist and all. this is the first year she was all, see ya mom! i got this! and i was all, "i'll never let you gooooooo!" sigh.
wasn't she just in pre-K?
we had our annual back to school feast (previous years here, here and here and here and holy crap here too. i guess we've been doing it awhile! ) and it was quite the event. tacos on fancy china with pepsi in crytal goblets. and dave in his underwear. classy. our theme this year is "here there and everywhere: family and God." the here there and everywhere is a beatles song. and family and God are here there and everywhere - so if we need something, that's where we turn.
and then henry got strep throat, so that's always super duper fun. he went from totally fine to swollen, feverish and lethargic in a matter of two hours. of course these two hours were the only ones in which dave was hanging solo with the kiddos, so i got a bunch of crazy texts in a short amount of time while i was at a church meeting.
dave was home for one night in two weeks. ONE NIGHT. and that was THE NIGHT that henry comes down with strep. bummer for dave, but that's life.
what else, what else...this week has sucked big time. work is one thing after another of drama and issues and fires and crap. lots of tears and grumpy people. and then henry gets sick and i'm missing work and feeling guilty and a few things blew up unnecessarily while i was gone, so that's frustrating and WAAAAAAHHHHHH. i'm feeling VERY woe-is-me today. obviously.
on the bright side, i got to "work from home" this morning with henry and he decided to get some super-important work done too on his Barbie laptop.
AND, i get to spend a whole night alone in a hotel room this weekend. which means a night of UNINTERRUPTED sleep and no alarm (henry or otherwise) in the morning. i can't wait, but i also hate to leave my kids. silly wedding.
THERE'S MY SCRAPS. BE THANKFUL FOR THE SCRAPS. AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY LORI GREEEEEEEEN!
