The day after Halloween...
Saturday, November 02, 2019
The kids didn't eat much candy...and they had friends to trick-or-treat with, so things were going well in spite of the cold. I enjoyed their joy with the friendly group. My bird lover even got an owl decoration, which he was thrilled with.
This morning was a different story. We were all tired, slow-moving and forgetful. One boy sent his trombone sailing down the steps (in the case, thankfully), and an older son kept acting like he did not remember the morning routine. I finally got everyone out the door, and turned around...and saw the mittens--3 of them (no pairs)...and the math notebook...and 4 gloves (1 pair)...and math calendar that was due today.
And they both survived the day
