Today was a great day. It was a no school day here in Aitkin so I had all my kids from my 1 year old to my 10 year old plus Mike stayed home with us too and for me it was the perfect day in my life of Riley. We let Mike sleep in this morning until 9:00 because the kids know a happy Mike makes for happy kids. Once he was up we all went outside and Mike took them for cart rides with my golf cart and their sleds tied to the back. Here, see what I mean….
The we had our Valentine’s party. First was pin the arrow on the heart.
Then while I fixed pizza for lunch Mike played Guitar Hero with them.
Then we ended our party with their goodie Valentine bags.
It was such a great day. I know I said that already but it really was. I am a very lucky daycare mom and mama. I wouldn’t for a million trillion dollars trade this life for anything.
So that was our day. Oh I have to share one more thing. On Friday we had a 1/2 day of school because of Teacher’s Workshop and we celebrated Abby’s 8th birthday. Here’s number two of my princesses. Meet Mr.. Monkey, Mr.. Space Monkey and Mr.. Rabbit. They are a group of friends that got together from our house and my friend in New York and her daycare. Our Mr.. Monkey went to New York last year to spend the year visiting Sally and her little ones and to get to know Mr.. Rabbit and on one of her trips they met up with Mr.. Space Monkey and became a group. This past January they came here to stay for the year and to get to know each other better and to see the sights here. While at Sally’s she wrote a journal about their adventures and this year we’ll do the same thing and we’ll make each adventure into a book with pictures. The kids love it and it’s a way for them to get to know another daycare in another state.
Okay that was our time together during this break. Our next break I think is Easter, wonder what goodies I’ll come up for my brood then? Stay tuned.
Take care and have a blessed night.
