Things have settled nicely… and been so busy at the same time. It’s nice to have found a routine with the boys. My weekly schedule, you ask?
Monday- get boys ready. joey to nana’s. chris and i to school (i volunteer there). i sneak out a bit early, get Joey, then pick up Chris. paul’s home, we all walk, make dinner, and do the night thing.
Tuesday- boys ready. chris to the bus. joey to school. dye yarn. get joe and chris (on my 1 hour pick up routine because of their school release times!). paul’s home. go to the post office with international packages. TRY to get to yoga, and then the night thing.
Wednesday- repeat tuesday, but joey is home and does nap when i dye. chris gets out an hour early!?!? no yoga, walking instead.
Thursday- repeat tuesday, enter the grocery store instead of dyeing. try again to get to yoga.
Friday- boys ready. chris to the bus. play with joey. naptime, dye yarn, get chris, paul’s home, walk, dinner, movie night, bed.
Now, if it seems like a LOT, it is. Last week was great though. My favorite parts? Chris asking me *every day* if I was coming back to school to help out. And Joey and I sitting in the backyard feeding the birds together for a good 20 minutes (that is some serious challenging of the toddler attention span).
I’m also up to 5-7 pounds of yarn a week, here is a photo of just a few of last weeks skeins.
Oh, we went apple and raspberry picking yesterday at an amazing orchard! It was just wonderful to enjoy the boys. Applesauce is going to be in the pot as soon as I get off this thing.
Joey decided that since we had such a long drive, and that we were in the mountains, that we must be meeting Becca and Chelle there. Talk about a heartwrencher. He wants to mail her an apple :).
I’ll post some photos next week, in some of my free time.
