Fall is trying hard to stick around...but winter keeps unexpectedly appearing. This morning we woke up to snow again. This always makes the kiddos happy, and I myself thought it would be the perfect day to stay warm and dry inside and re-group.
I don't even know if "re-group" is an official word, but after a crazy weekend like we had, I find it necessary to dig through the piles of clothes that accumulated over the weekend, catch up on e-mails that got neglected and just sort of get things about our house back in order.
On Thursday, Lindsay arrived and Abby and I also went to the theater. On Friday, some friends from our former life in Florida, came to visit Vienna and spent the day with us. It was great to catch up and have our kids meet each other. On Saturday we had an impromptu Halloween party and our neighbors obliged us and let us do some Trick or Treating. The kids just pulled costumes from our dress-up box and kiddos from our building came and played and watched some Halloween movies. So low-key and fun. Sunday was rest and church. Monday the kiddos didn't have school, so we spent the day at Bogi park with friends. It was a full, fun and long weekend!
So today was our first team meeting with Lindsay, and then mostly re-grouping, in between 2 trips to pick up the kiddos from school.
Along with sticking around the house today, I made cookies and ate them for breakfast and lunch. :) (We all need days like this right?) They were the perfect energy boost, when all I really wanted to do was crawl back under the covers and watch the snow fall!
