Despite the very cold temperatures (I’m convinced we are starting March and not May!), we had a very nice weekend. Friday was Emma’s first dance. What? You may be asking yourself. Isn’t she only 7 – yes, yes she is. However, the elementary school in our area put on a Father-Daughter dance, and Matt took Emma. It was the sweetest thing!
She was incredibly excited to get dressed up, have her hair and makeup done, and just have a good time. She ended up dancing with all the little girls there, and came home very late Friday night.
Because Emma went out for a daddy date, Jack, Lucy and I stayed home and it was Jack’s choice for our time together.
We started off with some ice cream, and then moved onto the video games. The kid loves his video games, although he doesn’t play them very much at all. We played Mario Kart – he easily beat me. We played two player Super Mario Bros. – with the direction to not warp (who plays those other levels?!), and ended with some Super Mario World.
None of the kids were in bed before 10pm, and I was expecting a nice time of sleeping in on Saturday morning. But, of course everyone was up at 6am, because no one likes to sleep in at our house (except for Matt, he really enjoys sleeping in!).
We took a trip to run errands in the morning, and stopped off at Target where the kids were able to spend some money that they had been saving.
Jack has wanted this Minecraft Stop-Motion Movie set for a while, so he bought that, and Emma bought a couple new miniature My Little Ponies. The rest of the afternoon was spent making movies. The box says 8+, but Jack really has a vision for making these movies at the age of 5. He is very good about setting everything up how he wants it, and never needs any help from Matt or me – which is good, because I don’t think I would be helpful even if he asked.
Sunday was a lovely day of church, rest time, and then a long bit of walking for me.
We live close to a playground, and the football field of our high school which has a track. The kids play at the playground while I have the opportunity to walk around the track. It works out well!
And here we are, Monday again, with 40 degree temperatures and rain. I don’t like this space to be gloomy, so I am going to stop here, otherwise I might go on a bit of a tirade about the weather, how it is May, and how it should not be this cold.
How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?
