another good day in this life...
Yay Emily! She still has a ways to go before she is a practicing nurse practitioner but she is now ready to start clinicals, with real patients:)
After the ceremony, we went shopping...I am not really wearing this to the wedding, but if I ever wanted to Effie Trinket it, I would totally buy this.
So I had some criteria for my dress for the wedding...I REALLY wanted to find one at the thrift store, but mostly I wanted it to be cheap or on clearance, ha, gray, and sparkly. And it had to cover my arms, and be modest. I found this today...
I had Kathryn take this picture, and as soon as I saw it, the self-criticism started...my tummy! But then...who really cares? Kathryn didn't like it at all when I started, so I stopped. It's not a good example for teenagers...:)
I am glad I found something though. We also found gifts for my niece's daughter Grace, who is celebrating her 14th birthday this evening, Evelyn, Suzanne, and Sonja went to her party. I found a few gifts also, and then we went to the warehouse store for a big bag of....dog chow.
We had some lunch at Five Guys, they have the best burgers!
Kathryn took the youngest three kids out and about today. They went for pizza with their homeschool certificates.
Tonight, they are bugging about when we are getting the Christmas tree. It was supposed to be today, but the place down the road closed too early, or I got home too late, plus Paul had the truck at work. Tomorrow he is going hunting, then we are going to a Christmas concert. Sunday morning we are leaving early to go to Ottowa (Canada) for the day for a birthday celebration for a friend...so either the older kids get it on Sunday, or we wait until Monday.
Ah well....time to rejoin the family...it's not easy to write when there are kids to talk to...
