09.24.12 | monday grocery shopping at walmart. and then a bagel. duh. took max to his class that night. he wanted to play on the tab before it started and i wouldn't let him, which put him in a bad mood and made him not want to go to class. so we left. no more breakdancing and no more tab.
09.25.12 | tuesday darric left for work before i got out of bed at 5:30. kenzie stayed after school for a meeting about the essay for the trip to washington dc. she is very excited about it. i love when the police roll down the street at the elementary school to play their siren for those that think it's ok to double park. although, i always worry i might be doing something wrong too. since there are "no parking" signs all down the street i'm parked along.
09.26.12 | wednesday when taking madi to school at 6:45 in the morning, the sun is very bright. (somehow, this became my job) madi had gymnastics tonight.
09.27.12 | thursday kobe and duke got in a fight this morning. kobe cornered duke, but he ended up with a claw stuck in his nose after the two of them had been separated.
09.28.12 | friday today after school, we went and got ourselves happy hour drinks from sonic. it's been awhile since we've gone there.
09.29.12 | saturday darric filled up the flat tire and me, him and max were at discount tire before 8:00 am. it only took them a half hour to put our 4 new tires on. so glad to have my car back. i drove it to einsteins and then over to petsmart to get kobe some food. that afternoon, darric took kenzie and max and went to big 5 to get kenzie a new volleyball and they picked up burger king for the kids. madi and i went to stock up on bath & body works goodies (wallflowers and soaps) and picked up cafe rio for the adults. we waited in the long line to get our food. i hate lines. for dinner we ordered papa johns and then i took the kids to get yogurtland (again) for dessert and we all watched the avengers. i enjoyed it. :)
09.30.12 | sunday i went and got einsteins for darric and i. then krispy kremes for the kids (i was a day too early for the halloween donuts. got gas and came home. that afternoon, we went over to grandma and grandpa carter's for lunch and to see their new floors that dan put in. they looked pretty and it really opened up the space. jan, her boys and the beach family came over too. to end the night, max and i went and picked up mcdonalds for the kids and 5 guys for the adults. mixter enjoyed some peanuts while we waited for our food.
• max has been doing cartwheels on his left side for as long as he's been doing cartwheels. they are like round-offs in fast forward. madi suggested he try one on his right side and it was a perfect cartwheel. he was so amazed. i was pretty impressed too.
