Our Week in Review

Drum Roll Please.....

MARGARET SLEPT THE WHOLE NIGHT IN HER OWN BED!

This is the first time this has EVER happened. Ever. Of course I think it had something to do with our day yesterday...

I volunteered to teach a sewing class for a Hearts at Home Girls group. There were six girls ages five to ten. The arrived at 10:00am to sew a cute and very forgiving purse. Each girl did awesome and went home with their own purse to show off. I didn't have to make to make lunch or supper because in addition to the girls I was teaching, the moms and and siblings came as well loaded down with food for every one's lunch and dinner for my family. So from 10am until 4pm (the girls finished sewng around 1:00pm) my house was filled with five moms, six sewing girls, and 13 additional children. It was the most fun we have had all winter!

So the day tired Margaret out, and she fell asleep shortly after everyone had left until 7pm when we woke her up for dinner, She was asleep again by 9pm until Michael got her up for breakfast.

That was our Thursday.

On Wednesday I had my weekly sewing day and it snowed a great deal and gymnastics was cancelled (again) for the boys. They don't offer make-up classes for weather related cancellations and this was the second one since Christmas. Sigh. Not exactly a cheap class to have multiple cancellations. Times two for two kids.

Tuesday was quiet with only Blue Knights and no scouts. Monday was just working hard on weekly school assignments. As much as I love co-op weeks, I also adore weeks that we spend time at home just being together.

On a final note for the week, it is currently 28 degrees outside and my daughter is dressed in a swimsuit. It's so cute I am not insisting she put something else on.

What a fantastic sewing event with the little girls!

Mary is 27 months and I think she's lasted all night in her own bed perhaps three times. Maybe that's not fair because I should "count" the nights when she runs in after 5:00 a.m. for morning snuggles, even if those snuggles last for an hour. But most nights she still comes in during the middle of the night. Glad we're not alone in that! Now, what to do when the new baby is here in 8-10 weeks, I'm not entirely sure . . .

Congrats dude, that will really come in handy when the new baby is around! Audrey is doing good on sleeping in her own bed in the room with Haven, and it is so nice to sleep with my husband!
