monday | 02.18.13 no school today. president's day. me, madi and max went over to ride bikes with grandma carter. jesse and the girls (and bennett) were there too. i got me some savannah time, while i pushed her in the stroller. i also got to try out dan's bike. not the harley. jude made us lunch, taco soup and homemade bread. max ended up staying the night and gabi stayed until bed time. they went and got sonic drinks, played outside and visited the dollar store where they bought all kinds of goodies.
tuesday | 02.19.13 madi and i headed out this morning and picked up bagels and then max. then ran by sonic and went up to jen's for a meeting. jodie and the gang came too. (madi finally got her turn to hold miss posie)
wednesday | 02.20.13 it was a bit chilly out this morning with no sun to help warm us up. so, i felt kind of bad that i sent max to school in shorts. it's partially his fault. he did have clean pants, but they have paint stains on them from going into kenzie's room the other day. he got out of the car and started to walk up and ran back out to me complaining how cold it was. so i had him sit in there with me until the bell was about to ring. i still had to give him a pep talk, but he eventually got out. that night kenzie had volleyball practice (since they didn't have it on monday) so max got to go sit with me during madi's gymnastics. she decided she was going to do the recital, so tonight we paid for her costume and during class she got measured.
thursday | 02.21.13 i dropped the kids off and then went and waited for target to open. i had to be back to the school by 9:00 so i figured i'd kill some time spending my birthday gift card. i ended up getting a spring table cloth, a coral platter, 2 nail polishes (green and a matte clear coat) and maybe some easter candy treats. i was running out of time, but i had a little money left so i will be back. at the school assembly, i sat through a cute little performance by some first graders and then waited for them to work their way through all of the first grade teachers and some of the second grade until it was finally mrs kralick's turn to pass out four awards. max got one for "being responsible". he helps close laptops, push in chairs and follows directions. after getting a picture and a hug, i headed to the bank to deposit a few checks and then grabbed lunch at port of subs. it was only 10:00 when i got lunch but, by the time i got home and did a couple quick chores, it was lunch time enough for me. (probably like 10:30)
friday | 02.22.13 worked on a few things this morning. posted my friday five post. number one on my list was my new blurb books. i was pretty excited when the comments had questions about the books. because i love answering those kinds of questions. it's the one subject i really enjoy and know quite a bit about. that afternoon i started feeling a little sickly. but that didn't stop me from taking kenzie to get us all frozen yogurt after we had dinner (papa johns). and then me, max and madi watched brave. i had totally forgotten madi got it for christmas. around 7:30, darric had to leave and run a call out in pahrump. so annoying. i hate when he has to drive that road, especially at night.
satuday | 02.23.13 kenzie had her volleyball tournament today at unlv. but, not until 1:00. i picked my mom up and we went and watched two of the games with darric. they didn't do that great today. darric blames me. he says i'm bad luck. when we left, we swung by jodie's and picked up 3 out of the 4 kiddos. i was keeping beckam and quincy and piper was staying the night with grandma. when beckam got in the car, this is what he had to say to me... how come you don't go to church? because it boring? i think it's boring. i guess quincy thought she was going to be going to church with us, so they had the conversation about it earlier. we dropped off grandma and piper and picked up mcdonalds. darric and kenzie were still at the tournament. we ate and then the kids all built forts. the boys had one and the girls had one.
sunday | 02.24.13 i woke up and went to get donuts for everyone. beckam and quincy stayed for awhile to play. their dad picked them up that afternoon and max and kobe took a much needed nap.
