...and we do it well! (But then, those of you who know us already know that.) Yesterday started out as an ordinary day...and in fact, most of the day was ordinary. We had an extra-long day of school to catch up on a couple of things as well as to accommodate a special project in history. We're studying the Early New Kingdom in Egypt, and the kids made paddle dolls in the style of those that Egyptian children of that time period would have had.
After school the kids played while I spent two hours working on the basement and then the garage (that's the final frontier in the house...I am making progress!). The kids played together happily the whole time, inside and outside, and then just as it was time to come inside and clean up, the ice cream truck came through the neighborhood. The kids have been really sweet about skipping it almost every time he comes around, so we decided to let them indulge this time.
Our otherwise-ordinary day ended with me and David at Urgent Care, where he got six stitches in his forehead to close up the spot that he split open when he cracked his head on the bathroom counter. Never boring!!!
