Last night we had dinner at Sarah and Miles’, the kids swam and played, and Ally and Elle conspired to get Mom/Aunt Sarah to consent to letting Ally spend the night. Aidan came home with us and we played games till bedtime. This morning the girls got up and swam some more, then Elle had an appointment so I went to get Ally and Jack (Beck is at day camp all week).
The kids kept Jack amused, we all had lunch including Grandpa’s home made cookies (yum), then Aidan and Grandpa went to the movies while Ally and I stayed home with Jack, who needed a nap. While he was asleep, Ally and I played a long game of Rack-o and she watched a little TV, then we drove Jack home after he woke up.
Rich made spaghetti for dinner and the kids swam. I reminded Aidan about his Kahn Academy math work and his reading for the public library summer challenge, which made Ally interested in both. After showers, they both read books and did some math problems before bed. Ally was really into it and asked to go to the library tomorrow to pick up some more chapter books. That does my heart good.
We are having girls’ day tomorrow since the guys got to do something today. We are picking up Elle in the morning and going to see Despicable Me 3 because it’s the only kids’ movie playing and Ally hasn’t seen it yet. I wasn’t that crazy about it the first time but I guess I am seeing it again, and Elle is going for the second time so she can see it with Ally. 🙂 Elle has a tennis lesson, so after we take her home we will go to the library and look for some books on our list that we made tonight.
I have a little bit of a scratchy throat–sure hope I am not coming down with something!
