Day around town

Today we braved piano lessons (Abigail is still nowhere near healthy, but she is improving and really wanted to go to lessons this week!), a doctor's appointment for me which was right down the road from lessons, and then the library. We spent an hour or so lazing around at the library; the kids sprawled out (literally) on the comfy reading chairs and read stacks of books while I wandered around the educational section and got a million great inspirations and ideas for school. (This scene of the kids would have made a really nice picture to go with this post, but I forgot the camera in the car...oh well!) We're all very happy to be home now; Abigail is quite worn out, but she did well considering. She headed straight for the couch with library books in hand. Notice that she has exceeded her socializing limits for the day.David headed straight outside to burn off all the energy he's been storing up during all the sitting-still-time he had today (he hooked up the truck to his bike with bungee cords and is towing it around here)!I finished sewing this outfit for debuted late due to her pneumonia, but even so she was so excited to wear it today and got nice compliments on it!

Love the outfit, Abigail! So very darling...but then again, what wouldn't look so cute on such a cute girl? Glad to hear you're feeling a bit better and pray you'll get back to your normal self soon.

Very nice outfit for Abigail. You even finished it before she outgrew it!! That is a huge feat for any mother let alone one who keeps appointments, lessons and illness hours like you do. So... now you have to make David an outfit which means you have to find boy patterns and then post where you found them so I doesn't have to do the work myself. : ) Seriously, glad A is better and that I'm not the only one who hides behind a book after a long day.
