This morning was my first time taking all 3 kids to Shriners by myself for one of Daph's new shoe appointments. It was such an accomplishment that it should probably be noted in someone's baby book. Or at least here on this blog. Usually we book these appointments for David's day off, but of course this was a random Monday that he had to work.
Shriners is only 10 miles away and yet it takes about an hour to get there in morning traffic. The kids were kept happy by listening to the Wicked soundtrack because they love listening to Broadway musicals on CD. Isn't it nice that we're raising such cultured children?
Except that despite my weeks of encouragement on getting white shoes made this time, Daphne chose a horse pattern. So...sad face. And she loves wearing her Awana vest as a prized article of clothing. We scream home school family, fashion wise.
Our stairs and driveway are still covered in ice from the Arctic Storm last week. I thought for sure we would have snow, but instead it iced all day long and now the ice won't go away. We basically need harnesses to get safely from the house to the cars.
At this moment all the kids are napping (well, they're each in a bed at least) and I need to be working on my list for Thanksgiving. And a list for something else that I can't remember right now...which is why lists are so necessary.
