We decided to make a trip to the library on Saturday afternoon. Elijah decided to wear his pirate eye patch from Aunt Deb.
We have a nice new library where we live and I enjoy a full book basket of new books to distract the children from asking to watch TV.
I had to prepare to teach Sunday school today and my CC class on Tuesday.
After dinner and setting the clocks back super early, we watched the new DVD release Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Day. While it did have few rated PG things, it was a really good family movie that displayed the refreshing message of teens whose loyalties were to their family over their peers. In addition, it was hilarious and everyone enjoyed it.
Sunday was our big day. The kids helped me teach my class since JD was out of town. We then went to lunch and headed to Suessical the Musical to celebrate Ben's 14th birthday. It was an excellent production and unfortunately the only photo I snapped was this quick one after the show of the little guys with the Grinch. I'm showing it in spite of it being blurry and Elijah's eyes closed because the Grinch is a big deal around here.
All if all, the seven kids in my care and I had a nice weekend making memories, and my messy house proves that I did more fun things than clean!
