2011 Week 4

Currently my life runs on one long, never-ending To Do List.
-pick paint color for kitchen, living room, etc...check! We hit it with test color #3 - phew!

-schedule and take Kaitlyn on playdate with a new friend from her class...check! We met them at McDonald's and had a great couple of hours at the indoor play place.
-paint the kitchen...check!
-paint the kids' bathroom...check!
-schedule time for Kaitlyn to play with neighbor girls...check! this one was spur of the moment, though we had been talking about it for a while now. The kids played really well together, but I found that they interrupted me (wanting things) quite a bit. Hopefully that isn't what happens every time they play together.
-paint and install drying rack in laundry room...check!
-paint and install shelf/towel hooks in kids' bathroom...check!
-family fun time...check! See, the list isn't all work! We took the kids bowling on Saturday and had a lot of fun. Both of them are better bowlers than I would have thought - I only barely beat their scores. Sam, of course, did better than all of us but then again he bowls weekly now so that's not exactly a fair match.
The first part of the time we were bowling the kids had to do it without the help of those little ramps you roll the ball down. Tyler liked it so much that he didn't want to use the ramp even when we did get one - though one of his inaccurate throws did end up in the no man's land between lanes and had to be fished out. Kaitlyn on the other hand liked the ramp and her score took an significant up-turn when she was able to more accurately aim the ball with it.

-cut Sam's hair and Tyler's hair...check! Ok this one wasn't actualy on the list. But Sam was getting shaggy so he asked me to trim it up. And when Tyler saw Sam was getting a haircut he asked if I would cut his too. I hadn't actually intended to cut his hair, just run the clippers through the bottom a bit but once I got going I got brave. I can't believe I did it either - I have NO experience cutting hair with anything other than Sam's easy military, do it all with the clippers cut. But thankfully I did ok. What do you think?

-make the time to take some photos for some home dec projects I have in the works...check!

This is us trying to get photos of just the feet. It's a lot harder than you'd think! (especially with the self-timer)

-try story time at the library...check! I'm very impressed with it they do everything from reading the book, to games, songs, and crafts. This will probably become of the weekly activities for Tyler and myself
-clean the house, do the laundry, figure out dinner, blah blah blah...check check check! Life is rolling right along here.
