No schoooool-- not as bad as I feared.

We had a fun day!

The kids slept until after 7, which meant I did, too. We had pumpkin waffles and bacon (I KNOW) for breakfast. The kids left me mostly alone for a whole hour so I could work out. When I cleaned up the boys' room Harry told me how awesome his friend Tommy's room is and when I pressed for details it turns out that the coolest thing is that Tommy has a desk and pencil holder in his room. So I showed Harry how to search the IKEA website, and he and Jack both found desks and used a measuring tape and washi tape to mark their footprints on the floor. And they found desk chairs. And now we have a fun winter break room makeover project. 
 After lunch we all went ice skating which was SO FUN. Mostly because a friend of mine showed up and asked me why Dorothy and Cooper weren't using these awesome seal walker/rider things. I immediately struggled off the ice and rented a couple. Best $8 I've ever spent. I have bruises on both ankles, though, from the half hour I spent bent over and wobbly trying to hold Dorothy up pre-seal. 

 And then a quick hot chocolate at a Starbucks we couldn't even all sit together at because it was PACKED with people who looked askance at children even though Starbycks is pretty much the McDonalds of coffee.

  1. Would it be too embarrassing for an adult to use the seal? That's the only way I could go on the ice.
