I should take more pictures. I should do alot of things. But today, I just took a nap. It wasn't really a nap, I just rested with Camille. I fell asleep a million times while she sang and put her fingers up my nose. She had slept in this morning 'til eleven, so I didn't want to put her in for a real nap. Charlotte Claire was tired, so she had gone willingly in for an afternoon crib visit. The kids were playing nicely, so I thought I would take a break....and it was pleasant. Camille is such a sweetie, even if she didn't go to sleep.
I got up and made a quick meatloaf, then cut up a five pound bag of potatoes, added mini carrots (cheat-y carrots), covered it with olive oil and salt and pepper in a glass dish, and put that in. When I make my meatloaf, especially when it goes in after 4pm, I section it off in the pan as if it is 6 or 8 smaller pieces. It cooks through lots quicker.
The kids have gotten along quite well today for having a day off. When I got home from parent conferences, Kathryn, Evelyn, and Suzanne were having lunch in the woods, where they were building a fort. Samuel was so nicely playing army men with Jon, and the little girls were just playing dollies and princesses. The kids have built a fort on the top bunk. It is a sheet that is tacked into the ceiling with like 100 tacks. They have played in there for most of the day.
I am struggling with something....all day, I wondered if I shared too much about that red car. I am not going to delete the post or anything, but.....I am wondering.
Well, Rosie the stinkbomb had a nice bath today and I haven't brushed her yet.......
