I wrote this blog today and on the original at my actual blog, there are some photos. The blog I wrote yesterday is also there, and it's photos of me in my old clothes to show how large they are on me now. It was just too many to upload here and copying it over without the photos is kind of pointless, since the whole point of the blog is the photos. I've been really busy the last couple days, but if you want to check out my other blog, feel free. I can't post the link because of the rules here, but you can find it on my facebook page. I need to do more catching up tomorrow on my e-mails and everything.
Today was Splash Day at my daughter's school. She's in kindergarten, and it's a special day near the end of the year for all of the kindergarten classes (the other grades do field day in May). Jeff and I signed up to help out, so we got there a little after 8 this morning and went to the classroom. There were a lot of parents there helping out. That is one thing I love about my kids' school-most of the parents are involved and willing to help out.
Jeff and I had a group of 11 kids, and our job was to take them from station to station. There were 12 stations set up which were manned by different parents. They are all numbered and every 15 minutes the kids switch to a different station. They were all really fun, and included things like hot potato, hula hoops, getting to wash a truck, relays with water, splashing in pools and "fishing" for the sea animals, a treasure hunt, sidewalk chalk, and then every couple of ones was a snack station with water or an icee pop. A mom in our daughter's class does fake tattoos, and she had a station, which all the kids loved. I even got one as well. :)
It was a lot of fun and the kids were having a blast. We had a some issues with a couple kids not listening, but nothing major. It was super hot out, and by the end of it I had a big headache and was ready to come home. They have a picnic afterward, and you can choose to bring your child home early, so we did. I had to take a shower once we got home because I was so sweaty and gross. I have to douse myself in sunscreen so I don't burn, but then later I can't wait to wash it all off.
Once my son got home from school, we took the kids to Sweet Frog, which is a local frozen yogurt shop. We had enough punches on our card to get a free one, so that was awesome! Then we had to go to the store and get a couple things I forgot the other day, and by the time we got back home I felt SO tired. Being out in the heat for over 4 hours takes a lot out of you.
We'd made plans to eat out, and I was so glad because it was so hot today and I was in no mood to cook. We went to Q bbq and I love that place. The food is so good.
By the time we got the kids in bed I was ready to crash on the couch, but I wanted to wash all the dirty towels from today and do a few other things around the house. Tomorrow is a half day for the kids, and so is Friday, which is their last day of school. We go on vacation next week, and I can't wait.
