well, monday was supposed to be different than it was. I was intending to have to find childcare for micah for the entire afternoon while I attended back to back class parties at the kids’ school. but instead of going to school, wearing his banana costume, and bouncing off the walls with a bunch of other 6th graders hopped up on sugar, shane spent the day doing this: yes, that’s a blanket, a recliner, a bowl of chicken soup… and a cat. yup, shane got ‘the heinous cold’ and had to miss school.
but, because he was home, and not asleep or terribly miserable, I was able to leave micah with him and attend layla’s class party.
first off, I’m furious with myself about the crappy pictures. I left my camera at home, and had to use my phone. ugh!
this was a bouncy, gumdrop/pipecleaner spider craft. her spider is the grean and orange blur in the middle. and of course, cookie decorating. the whole class: and a fun little tidbit I noticed at the top of the bulletin board:
when the party was over, school was over, so I brought her home. she was very happy to be “parent pick-up” instead of bus, because the bus riders had to change out of their costumes and she didn’t want to. it was a super fun time with just layla!
