Last week, the kids wanted to have a party.
And everyone knows, parties need decorations.
The party that day also included:
a game where I had to guess what each bite of their apples tasted like,
reading lots of books,
couch-pillow tossing contest,
coloring together at the table in the quiet afternoon,
checking out a charter school we're hoping to get Nicholas into next year,
muffins and smoothies for dinner,
and discovering that Ellie can actually jump over Kent as he lays on the floor.
It was quite a party-ful day,
and the kids actually even worked together happily to clean up all those streamers before bed.
