Rockin' Fall Break

I have really wanted to take advantage of the kids' week off from school. We went bowling yesterday. We forgot the camera. Rick took some pics with his phone and has informed me that they didn't turn out too good. So, when he sends them, I will share any that are decent. It was a really fun time, but more about that later.

Today, I decided to be a rockstar mom and just have fun all day. Now, I am exhausted. We started the day with cinnamon rolls. Then, I took the kids swimming at the YMCA.

Why is it that when I see someone else with 6 kids, it looks like so many, but when I look at my crew, it looks just right?

This boy loves him some swimmin'
After we got showers, I took the kids to Chick-fil-a. It was fun to go out to eat. That is a rare treat for us!!

Cody had football practice and Lauren had soccer practice. I was supposed to pick Cody up. Instead of waiting until his practice was over, I took Abby, Sam, Isaiah and Laila to the park by his practice field to play for a while. Now that is not like me. I am not a big fan of the outdoors. Parks really aren't one of my favorite places to go. Not to mention, the chilly evenings we are having now. (Let's just say, I was depressed the whole day when Rick took the a/c out of the windows. I am already missing summer already!!)

She is actually smiling so hard that it looks like she is crying!!
She LOVES to swing!

I don't usually pack so many events into one day, but we did it, and we all survived. Tomorrow will be a day to sleep in and rest. I am thankful for the time we have had together this week!!
