Library Tuesday

Woke up this morning kind of dreading getting everyone out of the house again. (I had intended to complete our library visit yesterday, when we were already out and about, but they were closed for Columbus Day.) It was so exhausting yesterday, running errands all afternoon/evening, that I didn’t feel like it attempting it again. Turns out we didn’t get to the library until 3 PM, but we had the place to ourselves for a while. Will said, “At least there’s no people here!” Oh no! I’m raising loners like me. 

It was another full, busy day. Definitely got some things crossed off my list and managed to do school again with the boys. This will be our first full, legit week and I’m hoping to get into a groove fairly soon. At one point, one of the boys said, “School is fun!” I sure hope it can stay that way. 

Nursing the baby and watching the kids play… a peaceful morning moment.

The boys playing with their gears. (Finally ordered a replacement piece for the part that broke, and I’m looking forward to this toy no longer provoking a nagging feeling in my mind.)

The boys made a dinosaur train. William told me a few times that there were 21 dinosaurs.

Neva would bounce these babies to soothe them, just like I do with Mac. She just about had a meltdown when it was time to put them back, but God sent a random little boy who at that moment decided he wanted to show her a butterfly puppet, and it made her so distracted and amused that we were able to put the babies away without a huge fit. 

William is obsessed with this red eyed tree frog puppet. We’ve checked it out of the library two weeks in a row now, and I don’t think they’re going to let me renew it again next week. He sleeps with his hand inside him and calls him Wacky. He would love his own Wacky for Christmas, but this particular puppet has been retired and is now approximately $70 used on eBay. Hopefully I can find an appropriate substitute. 

“Can I feed these bugs to Wacky?!”

Having some fun with the winter hats. The weather was a little chillier this evening. Neva has no pants on because… potty training. 

Mac does his exercises with daddy.

Picked up some superhero costumes at Goodwill yesterday, and the kids got to try them on tonight. I bought one for Mac, for when he is bigger, on a whim, and I’m so glad I did because Neva desperately wanted it. Oh my goodness, I laughed and laughed at the sight of her in that little muscle suit. She ran around with the boys and they were all  so cute. More photos I’m sure will be forthcoming when I actually wash and dry them. I hate the smell of goodwill clothes before they’ve gone through the laundry! 

And finally, this is me, super super excited because, as of tonight’s work out, I can do three pull-ups in a row!
