...is that by 6:30 pm, all the kids are in bed!!! Whew. What a day. Back to school - first day back after Spring Breka. Josiah was ready to get back to do his "work", so he was a happy camper. I felt like our door was a revolving door today though. We had our first of 3 movers come by to give us an estimate. That part was actually very exciting!!! :) Then I was off to pick up Jack from preschool since I was watching him this afternoon, and then pick up Josiah. The biggest stress of the day was that we had our home inspection this afternoon. Scheduled for noon. UGH. Obviously a home inspector doesn't care that I have 4 kids under 6 in my house today and that 3 of them will DESPERATELY need a nap right at that time!!!
Oh well. So we went straight to Chick-fil-A to have lunch and let the kids play on the indoor playground (because of course it was thunderstorming today) for a couple hours. Food was yummy, kids were crazy. A few breaks in the play for potty, tears, fighting, tired boys, but we made it through. We were finally given the "all clear" to come back home a little after 2 pm (a relief because they said it could take up to 3 hours!!). About 2 minutes after we left, the skies opened up and HAIL started coming down!!! I've never seen anything like it. PENNY-SIZED HAIL!!! It was so loud on the van that I couldn't even tell the kids what it was or what was going on. You should have seen their eyes. It was only about 5 minutes, and then it was just "regular" pouring rain. Crazy. We got home safely, but naptimes were shot. Curious George & SuperWhy helped get some very tired boys through the next hour until Jack went home later on.
My kids had an early dinner of leftovers & cereal (that's one good thing about David being gone...no pressure on the dinner options!), and then bathtime and bedtime. Good thing. Big day. Tomorrow's a big one too - dentist appointments for all 3, storytime, Jack again in the afternoon, Mover Estimate #2. But at least naptime won't be interrupted!!! :)
