Time appears to be dragging. I think it's a conspiracy against me. We were able to make an arrangement with our new landlord to get into the place early in exchange for cleaning it. So, that means we should have the key as early as this weekend. In the meantime, however, we're packing up all we can so our place is filled with boxes, there's not much to do and there's nowhere to walk. Oh, fun. I wish time would just move faster so that we can start clearing out some of this stuff! Ok, enough complaining ;) Speaking of cleaning...anyone want to help? It will be lots of fun!
On another note, since most of our stuff is packed up, we had nothing to do for "Family Night" this week (which just so happened to be on Saturday since the Dave Ramsey thing was on Thursday), So we decided to take the kiddos to McDonald's and then to Hastings to let them pick out a new book. We've decided that there is an unspoken rule at McDonald's. If you kids are well behaved, they are allowed to sit in the dining area, if they are brats, you must take them to the play area where they will not disturb the other patrons. Now, this does not mean that all kids that go into the play area are brats of course. There was this one family where it was quite obvious who was in charge. It was the 5 year old girl climbing on all the tables yelling at her mom that she wants ice cream. What was her mom doing? Standing in line yelling right back, asking if she wanted chocolate or strawberry. I think just about every person in there was glaring at her lol.
At Hastings, Kelsi picked out a couple of Warriors books...shocking...while Matthias spent the time playing at the train table. We found a couple of educational type books for him, the kind where he can practice his writing and counting and such and then it just wipes off. So, that's about all the excitement going on around here...oddly, I have not pictures to share!
