Well, the sleepover was a success, i think! the girls earned the planned badges, only two cried about their parts in the play, and nobody was traumatized by the bats that came to visit. that's right, I said bats! It may have been the same bat twice, as we did not actually see it go outside, but regardless, we had 2 bat incidents. What do you think happens when there is a bat flying around 12 girls, that's right, screams, scretches and more screams. of course, after it was over, that was all they could talk about. (What if the bat comes back, where did it come from, that was freaky) But then in the morning, as they were getting picked up, I'd say "Tell Mom/dad about the guests/excitement we had" and nobody knew what I was talking about. I guess kids are pretty resilient! yah!
Saturday then started slow, getting the room cleared for Sunday school, headed home, hanging out. Then we decided to drive to WI and check out a new bike trail. I should have known that Baby would lose it, she was hot and tired, so we didn't go as far as we would have liked, but it was still a good day. then of course, both of the girls perked up when we stopped for ICE CREAM!
Sunday, Fisher went, well, fishing...early...like so easrly my brain cannot function at that time of day. When he got back, I took the girls shopping for first day of school outfits. Before you know it, it's time for bed and time to prep for another week of work. Little do the girls know that this is practice week for school, so bedtime just got moved up an hour, just to try to get them in bed on time. We'll see how that goes. I'm not holding my breath!
On a side note, there is a new fund raiser in the works for RMH (Ronald McDonald House, not Rockford Memorial Hospital). If you would like to contribute, let me know or contact Char Rush at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are collecting things like toys, board games, and pop tabs. And of course, cash is always good.
Til Next Time~
