Friday (5/19) We survived another school week! AJ had a Brain Balance assessment today so he did not go to school. I got Daniel and Zak dropped off and then came home to get AJ and I ready to go. We headed up to Brain Balance and I did my part of the assessment then headed down the street to meet a friend for lunch. It was so nice to catch up with her and enjoy an awesome burger at J Alexander's. AJ finished up a little earlier than planned so thankfully I was back and we were able to head home. My mother in law came in to stay with Zak after he finished up at school and I needed to get home to relieve her.
AJ, Zak and I hung out for about an hour and then it was time to pick up Daniel and head to the Y for my Barre class. I had a great group for class and we worked hard! Then I got a little cardio after class by running to the car with the boys since it was pouring! Of course since the weather was bad, the traffic was horrible to get home. We finally got here and I got pasta ready for dinner. We settled in for family movie night and watched "Piglet's Big Movie" which was Zak's pick. It was cute, we all enjoyed Winnie the Pooh and we laughed a lot. Then we got the kids to bed, caught up a little on our DVR and headed to bed pretty early ourselves.
After soccer, Adrian took Daniel and headed out to a baseball game. I took the other two boys to the library to pick up a few books for them. Daniel's team won the game, he made a few plays in the field but didn't get a hit again. Adrian worked the concession stand since we have to volunteer twice during the season. They were happy the rain held out for the game! When they got home, we all played a quick game of Sushi Go Party, my new game from Mother's Day. It was a lot of fun!
The rest of the day we just tried to get as much done as possible around the house. We are trying to do one day of work and one day of fun over the summer so today was our day of work. I flipped the boys clothes around so now all of their shorts are out. I also found about 3 bags of stuff that doesn't fit them any more so we can pass it along. We finished up the night was some snacks and TV and later than usual bed times for all of us.
Sunday (5/21) started as another lazy Sunday, which we are really getting used to. Although Zak and Adrian were up very early and started playing, the rest of us slept in. We went to church together for the second service and then came home to have lunch. Our plan was to go see "Guardians of the Galaxy 2" but Zak didn't want to go, then AJ decided he didn't want to go if we couldn't all go as a family. So we decided to have a stay home family fun day instead. We played volleyball in the yard, played on the swings, played a bunch of board games and played video games. We had our normal Sunday family dinner, finished up a few things left on our to do list and got to bed early to be ready for our last week of school!!
Tuesday (5/23) We all got up and out to work and school on time. I did a little grocery shopping after dropping everyone off before heading to teach my Silver Sneakers class in the morning. Then I picked Zak up from school, grabbed a quick lunch with him and headed to meet our friends at Doran's farm for some strawberry picking. We spent nearly an hour in the field and picked about 8 1/2 pounds of strawberries, plus ate about another pound! It was a great day and Zak and I had so much fun!
Wednesday (5/24) I got everyone off to school after a little struggle - we are all running out of steam! Then I headed to my old gym to sub a Zumba class for a friend. It was so fun to see old friends and dance with them! Then my whole afternoon canceled. I was supposed to have a meeting but the woman had the flu so we rescheduled. And Zak and I were supposed to go to AJ's mini golf course but since it was raining it wasn't set up. So Zak and I came home and relaxed, cooked dinner and played some video games before picking up the older boys and heading to the Y for class 2 of the day. We finished there, ran home for a quick dinner and I took AJ and Daniel to their soccer class. They did a great job tonight, very good listening and skill development. Adrian and I finished up the night by staying up too late watching the Survivor finale. What a great season!! We really enjoyed seeing a lot of our favorites come back and play again. And we are so happy that Sarah won!
Thursday (5/25) 2 more days! We got up and out to school on time today and Daniel was super excited to get to wear pajamas and bring a stuffed animal with him to school today. After I got everyone dropped off, I headed out to teach my Silver Sneakers class. I picked Zak up and we played for a little, then I decided to get ready for the evening because we had a busy night planned. I was waiting until the last minute to see if the rain would cancel Daniel's baseball game but it seemed like the weather would be fine so I planned as if we'd play. We walked to pick up AJ and Daniel and then I got ready to leave for my Zumba class. Adrian got the boys ready and headed to the baseball field. When I got there after my class it started to rain so I decided to leave with AJ and Daniel while Adrian and Daniel and his team waited out the rain. But after about 30 minutes of waiting, they decided to cancel the game so we'll have to have a make up later in the season. We tried for an early bedtime but everyone was very excited about the last day of school tomorrow!
