We went to a birthday party with fall festivities at a local park last night. I managed to get a photo with all the kids looking in the same direction! Not at me… But still. It counts.
We’re all well, just trying to keep our heads up above water. Blaine has a business trip later this week, I pulled out winter coats and created extra laundry, and despite having the house quite clean multiple times this week, guess what we get to do tomorrow? Attempt to find the living room and laundry room floors. My word, things get wrecked in a hurry. It’s not as bad as it sounds, but almost. Trying to organize coat hooks is a major undertaking. I’ve discovered that each child having a good coat and a play coat saves much angst on hectic mornings when we’re trying to leave the house and a dear child failed to mention they fell in the mud… on purpose… multiple times. It creates 14 kids coats to find a home for, however. It makes me tired just thinking about it.
I think we’re eliminating hats and gloves this year and praying for warm weather. I cannot bring myself to even start rounding those up… Wouldn’t that be lovely?!
