Shortly after this, he totally abandoned his ball to go talk to the coach about shin guards!
He was right up in the huddle. See him all bent down?!Friday, my mom, Grant, Claire and I headed out for a little weekend trip. Friday night we stayed at my aunt’s house in Louisville. Saturday morning, the kids and I got up and drove to Northern KY (think just outside Cincinnati) to visit one of my friends from college and her family. Grant has always been an easy traveler, but, unfortunately, the same cannot be said for Claire. She fussed quite a bit in the car, especially every time her raisins or puffs ran out. She also had a really hard time sleeping both nights we were gone. I just hope that all of that will improve before we decide to take an extended vacation to a destination that might be a longer drive!
Saturday, we headed to Totter’s Otterville. I had never heard of it before, but it was so much fun. Grant & Claire both loved it! I wish that it were nearby. There was so much for both of them to do. I forgot my camera, so I have no pictures of the day there! Claire got so wet in the water exhibit that I had to strip her down. Here are a few pictures of our 4 kids together. Right now they are ages 4,3,2,1. Pretty much every time we’ve seen each other in the past several years one of us was pregnant, but not this year so I guess there won’t be another to add to this pic anytime soon! We had a great time and look forward to seeing them again. Grant really didn’t want to leave this time, so we’ll have to get together sooner rather than later!
all 4 kiddos together. i think i have 12 pictures, but this is the best one!
And this is what I did ALL DAY Monday.
I ended up taking the day off Monday just to get my house back in working order. You wouldn’t think I could get so far behind in just a few days, but I did. Plus, I was behind before I left. I feel like I’m always behind on chores. Things just pile up, and I think I’ll get to them, but I turn around and it’s a month later and the pile is still there. I hate clutter, so this is very frustrating for me! I had all these things I wanted to get done, but pretty much all I did is unpack, laundry, dusting, picked up toys, and “did” our floors. No grocery store trips, no yard work, no blogging, and no pictures uploaded! What a way to spend a day off, huh?! I’m itching for another one, but doubt there will be one until my little trip in April!
These is just a cute picture of my Claire Bear! She was hiding between the sliding door and the panel on it eating her goldfish.
