Another very good night. Another good morning with happy and cheerful children. It’s really amazing how easy the girls have made this for me. There was one minor change in plans, the girls really didn’t want to walk to school this morning. It’s gorgeous here – nice and fresh in the morning (in the 50s) and sunny and warm but not too hot (75-80) in the afternoon. But apparently after a few days of warm weather the cooler morning temperatures were already to cold for my little babies. Oh well – we took the car.
After school we walked into the Village – and yes, Spacemom, we did of course go to Starbucks. But then we had a special treat – Thursdays there’s the Farmers’ Market right next to the playground we usually go to after school. There’s lots of food and always live music. Today the girls decided that the rhythm section needed some help and they pitched in (but to be honest, the drummer was the only one who knew roughly what he was doing. The other two… let’s say there’s room for improvement; lots and lots of room. But the girls didn’t mind. And so I tipped the musicians (and I use this term rather loosely) anyway.
We walked home, the girls took a shower and went to bed. They were really really tired.
Yet another day of lots of fun, lots of time outside – and no TV at all. I’m happy.
The bad news? The plane that K2 was supposed to take back to Portland had to turn around on their way down from Portland to Santa Rosa. It made it on the second attempt and but by then things were running an hour and a half late. K2 is now in the air and will be arriving at PDX in about 20 minutes. But that meant that instead of us coming to the airport and picking her up (which would have been so much fun for the girls; they love airplanes) K2 now has to take a cab home and won’t get to see the girls till tomorrow. Oh well.
