Today was a good day. The sun was shining, the temperatures were near perfect, and the kids slept until 8:00 this morning which meant that I enjoyed a nice, long and semi -relaxing coffee break.
I attended our city's MLK Celebration, so I dropped the kids off at daycare around 9:45 before heading to the program. It was very uplifting and inspiring, and I am so glad I went. After the service, I ran to Wal-Mart to pick up some shirts/dresses to have monogrammed for our Disney Trip. More on that later, but for now, Wal-Mart has some really cute clothes!
I made it to pick up the kids in just enough time to get to their haircut appointments. Eli wanted a mohawk, so I agreed with the understanding that he could only style it that way on the weekends…and not at church. Ha! It was Ellie's first haircut, so you can expect a post dedicated to this milestone.
After the haircuts, I rewarded their good behavior with a trip to the park. Ellie is getting to be independent, and Eli is braver than ever. It was nice to let my guard down a little bit since he's older and knows the boundaries. This time last year I was still chasing Eli around making sure he didn't get hurt while also packing Ellie on my hip. This year is better, so hand in there Mommas.
We came home after the park and played outside some more while Eric cleaned the quail he got while hunting. Then we ate a yummy supper, did some laundry, checked our homework, took our baths, and settled in for the night.
I loved this day. I love how fun their ages are right now. I love that we hit a milestone with Ellie. I love the time we shared together and the memories we made, I love being their mom!
