From my other blog...
Today was Nathan's first day of second grade! He goes to a magnet school whose focus is on environmental education. They get to do all kinds of cool outdoor projects and even have camping trips.
Here's him in the car as we were leaving:
I forgot to take the camera in with us as we got him settled in his classroom. Oh well, it would have just embarrass him anyway.
We had a nice downpour as I was driving back
Back to the house and the other little ones were up and ready for breakfast
Yusef had his as well. He's getting pretty good at holding his bottle!
Next is bath time
All cleaned up and ready to run our errand to Wally World for some supplies
This is how we roll
Back to the house for Dhuhr
I do a little decorating with some cheap stuff I bought at Walmart
Pleased with the results
Lunch and now time for a little cleaning
Gotta have my coffee and Mp3 player for this. I download free audiobooks from my local library's website. I'm currently listening to a garden variety serial killer suspense type thriller. It makes the chores so much more fun!
Picking Nathan up at the bus stop
Cookin' up some dinner for the family. I made BBQ chicken tostadas ala Weight Watchers from this recipe. It was really good and something different
Here's my plate. Yummy and not too calorically disastrous
This is the point in the evening where all hell breaks loose as usual. Cleaning up the dinner mess, squabbling cranky children, getting them ready for bed. The usual. Poor little Yusef had another seizure at this time as well. It's so stressful seeing this happen to your child.
I finally got them off to bed by 8:30 when a thunderstorm moves in and they all end up congregating in my bed. I love Kansas thunderstorms, but they don't go well with little ones. So I made myself some green tea with lemon and ginseng and enjoyed the storm
Finally got them off to bed and I'm curling up with my hero, Frederick Douglass.
Nighty Night all...
Alhumdu lillahi rabbi al Aalameen for blessing me with another day. Ameen.
