It's after 2:00pm and I just walked through the door for the first time since I left at 8:20 this morning.
Today I drove my kiddos to school and stayed to volunteer - I read with the first and second graders twice a week. Then I pulled my three kiddos out to school and headed to the health department for H1N1 flu vaccines because none of the doctors around here have any. To make a very long story short, we waited for 2 1/2 hours only to find out that they ran out of flu shots. I then took my tired and hungry kiddos for fast food where a series of unfortunate events (yellow jacket invasion) created a situation where very little was eaten. All three kiddos were happy to return to school and I stopped to pick up some groceries. We will be doing all this again tomorrow morning when the next batch of flu shots arrives. I want to be a stay at home mom who actually spends some time at home. Really I just want some time to sew and knit - but you already knew that.
But it's not all flu shots and errands. So many great things have been going on around here...
Plus, we had the best weekend.
And no raking is complete without an impromptu game of quidditch.
We finished the morning off with corn for breakfast #2.
And we had just as much fun on Sunday.
I feel so very blessed and I appreciate every single moment - "at home" or not!
