It was an interesting day! We found out late Saturday night that my parents would arrive Monday afternoon, instead of the anticipated Tuesday evening. We were sooooo not ready. The day began with a frenzy of cleaning. We moved our Clean-Up Day from Saturday morning to this morning so the kids were busy putting away toys while I attacked the growing mounds of dishes in the kitchen. Also, I had promised da Boo and the Boy that I would take them to the swimming pool today. Unfortunately, I didn't realize that because of swimming lessons, the pool didn't open until 1:30, which would be putting it close to the Boy's naptime. Oh well! Sacrifices they must make in the name of fun. We headed to the pool, with only a couple hours before my parents arrived. Still, we liked it. Well, da Boo and I did. The Boy wasn't too sure about this whole getting-wet-for-fun thing. He doesn't even like baths, why would he voluntarily enter water and enjoy it? Grampa and Gramma Texas joined us for FHE this evening.
Opening Prayer: I was in charge, so I called on Gramma.
Opening Song: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. (That's right, the Boy was in charge of songs.)
Lesson: Da Boo wanted to give a lesson on Noah and his Ark. I found an old Ark picture made into a pocket from my Sunbeams teacher days. Then we printed out a set of matching animal pictures. Da Boo told us how Noah was a good guy so God asked him to build a big boat for the animals. Then he got all the animals (had to ask her "did he get ALL of them, or just two of each?") and put them on the boat while it rained on the naughty people. Then after lots of rain, God sent a huge, big rainbow (her words).
Next, we played a game with the animal pictures, Memory-style. Once a pair of animals was matched, the person who found them got to put them in the ark so they would be safe. Da Boo loved the game and wanted to play again.
Closing Song: Monkey See, Monkey Do (the Boy really needs to expand his repertoire).
Closing Prayer: Grampa.
Treats: The Man had treats and when he has treats, we usually head to Cold Stone. I don't know if this is a Utah thing but on Monday nights, they have a "Family" special, where you purchase a Love It or Gotta Have It size and get two free Kids' Kreations. Da Boo got mint with sprinkles and the Boy got chocolate with chocolate chips. Gramma and Grampa Texas split a Chocolate Devotion (chocolate ice cream, brownie, fudge and chocolate chips) while the Man and I shared chocolate ice cream, peanut butter cups, fudge and peanut butter combination. We all had messy faces, sticky hands and big smiles.
My parents are here while the Man and I take our trip to London (feel free to envy me). I've asked my mom to take over my blog while I am gone, so please be nice and leave her lots of comments, okay?
