But I couldn't stay out too late, oh no! Scott and I left on Sunday morning at 7:45am to have a quiet breakfast out. Right after that, I drove up to Grandma Deb's to attend a Norwex party, and then bring Ava and G home. After a quick stop off at our house, and settling the kids in there, I picked up my mom and we headed to the big craft fair in Shakopee. We walked/shopped for several hours, then hit up Target on the way home. Phew! I was exhausted by dinner time last Sunday.
Monday didn't get much better, as G was fighting a fever. I kept him home from daycare and we headed into the doctor. Strep threat is the winner! And that means that G needed to stay home with us through Tuesday morning. So, we hung out for a bit, cuddled, and watched some tv, but to be honest, he was ready to see his friends after several days without them. He's feeling much better now, so back to business, as usual, for him.
To help prep G for the strep test, the nurse asked if G liked popsicles. Of course he does! She asked what his favorite color was...and he said blue. As we were waiting for the blue popsicle to arrive I asked him wait flavor he thought it would be. Wisely, he said blueberry, but I challenged him and asked what if it's strawberry? Or lemon? He denied that would be possible. Fast forward a few minutes...as he was enjoying his blue popsicle, I asked him what flavor it was. He responded with a simple, "Lemon." I questioned him, mentioning that it was blue, to which he replied with a smile, "It's blue lemon." Such a smartie pants...!
I work from home on Wednesdays, so Ava and I planned that I would have lunch with her at school this week. It was a quick 20 minutes, but it was a fun break in my day, and she was happy to show me how and where she eats every day!
This little guy was almost on our porch on Wednesday morning...when he saw me stand up to take his pic, he quickly waddled away!
Thursday night had me rescuing a puppy and child from an intersection (seriously, parents...watch your kids and pets!!) and then I headed into a PTO meeting that lasted three hours. There were some very verbal attendees...all I will say is that I left the meeting with a feeling of disbelief. I thought that all parents would want the safety of the school, and small class sizes to be addressed. I learned that is not the case...amazing. I am definitely going back next month so I can cast my vote accordingly.
Yesterday morning, Scott took G on some DOT inspections, as Ava and I had our third Color Run to attend! My neighbor picked us up and we went through the health fair first, and then enjoyed a leisurely 1.5 mile walk through the neighborhood around the school. Ava really got into it by rolling on the ground to get some good color (other kids were doing it, too!) After this healthy morning, we went and got McDonalds for lunch. Don't judge me. LOL.
Nice and clean...
Not quite as clean!
And then we napped! Well, I took a nap, G took a nap, and Ava played in her room. And it was gloriously quiet and restful.
We finished up Saturday with a great summer dinner off the grill, and our first bonfire of the year! It was the perfect way to kick off the warmer weather.
This morning, Scott is taking Ava bowling, and then out to lunch. And G and I get to hang out! I'm looking forward to a low key day after this super busy week!
