It has been a super busy day today! I steam cleaned my carpet, made a grocery list, cleaned out the fridge, did 2 loads of laundry, cleaned the boys room and mopped the kitchen floor. And that was all by noon!!
This afternoon a Early Childhood Intervention Specialist came to the house so that I could get all the paperwork filled out for their "play assessment" appointment next week. She was really nice and I'm excited to have them come and watch both girls play. Initially I was put-out by this lady after the following conversation:
ECIS: "So, we'll have a play assessment with the girls and it will take about 3 hours. When would be a good time to come to your house and do this with them?"
ME: "Well, it would be nice to do this while my boys aren't here and they are gone in school on Tuesdays and Thursday. And the girls nap in the morning and afternoon, so maybe some time mid-morning?"
ECIS: "Okay, let me check our schedule and I will call you back."
she calls back and says: "Alright, I have you down for Monday at 1pm."
So much for what would work for me! I was annoyed. But am over it now. And ready for them to give me some ideas to start working with Miss Silly Lily Kate. She is the one that we are worried about. Ella seems just fine to me. But as long as they are here, they might as well watch her too.
Oh, I was actually surprised that I got as much accomplished this am, as I did since I was up way later than normal last night. I got home late from my Girl's Night Out! We were actually going to have a movie night, but ended up eating ice cream and chatting the night away. I have this amazing group of friends here and I love spending time with them. I'm definitely blessed!!
I woke up this am suddenly realizing that in a little over a month Lovey will be graduating from medical school. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! I can't believe it! We are actually all going to DC for his graduation and are making a vacation out of it. We will be gone for over 3 weeks. That, my friends, is a long time with kids! And what will shock you more is that we are driving!!! I know, we are nuts!
Yeah, we are driving from here to DC (3 days), then to the beach with our amazing friends, then to Sesame Place (Oh, SO much fun!), then to St. Louis, then home. All six of us. In the car. Together. With all the junk that you need to cart 4 kids around with. My stomach is starting to hurt...
I was thinking that we could just rent a UHAUL, and put all our junk and the kids in the back. Oh, you're right...it would be mean to put them back there. I volunteer myself to ride back there. It would be quiet. Hot, but quiet.
