The kids and I scrambled to get our cleaning done this morning. It didn't help that I woke up not feeling the best. Once we had breakfast and got Marko off to work, I went back to bed. At first I felt guilty but reminded myself it's important for the kids to have a healthy mom and not a stressed out mom. And I gave myself permission to rest. It was the best thing I could have done. I felt so much better afterwards.
We were just finishing lunch when the MacGregors showed up. The kids were wildly excited to see each other again and it was apparent that a trip to the great outdoors to burn off some of their excitement was in order. I thought we might get 10 or 15 minutes out of them but they played and played. Levi even joined in on the fun.
Jackie and I drank our coffee and talked and talked and got caught up on all our happenings. I got hot chocolate made for the kids and they came in while I got Levi tucked into bed for his nap. Then it was popcorn and movie time.
It was a great afternoon!
We were so busy talking that I didn't stop to take a picture. So, here we have our bowl of fruit!
