Macaroni Grill is a great place for kids. Not only do they have super macaroni and cheese but you can draw on the table coverings. The kids filled the table with drawings while we waited for our food. Above are Lana’s…she named them all. All I remember is Tomato Girl.
Yesterday Lana made her first Confession. I got to take her. Erin was working and Brent and Jerry were making sure Declan got to a t-ball game (Brent’s a coach) and Calli to her soccer game. It was a lovely ceremony. The kids were given a little piece of paper when they walked in and were told to write down their sins so that if they froze when they talked to the priest they could read the paper. Afterwards they put their paper in a bowl of water and watched it dissolve.
Calli and Lana are both “student of the week” this week so Sunday was busy making posters, picking out favorite books to share with the class and thinking about a mystery box item (sharks’ teeth). Brent is going to have a lot to do this week to stay on top of it all …special snack, parent reader, etc…NOT the best week for the kids to be “student of the week” because Erin is heading to Houston on Wednesday to be with Jerry during my surgery. But she’ll get it organized. She’s patched together a “kid care” program that left my head spinning. People to take care of them after school, get them to soccer practice and art class…contingency plans for rainy days, etc. The kids are thrilled…play dates every day. Brent is stuck with homework, drilling spelling words, baths, making lunches, etc. I guess besides owing Jerry when this is over, I’m going to owe my son in law big time.
A few pictures from the weekend….Declan keeps asking when we’re going home. Erin finally figured out that he thought that when we left it would be summer and they were coming to our house in the summer. That child has no concept of time.
