My Week Off-Day One

So on the first day of my 5 days off, this is what we accomplished:

Shelby attended her first day of summer school, and LOVES her math teacher, plus one of her best friends from school is also attending, so she has a buddy.

When Shelby got home we went through all the shoes and the dress up clothes in the girls' closet and got rid of at least half of each.

I then tackled the Mt Everest of laundry, and the dirty dishes.

Then we went to the pool.

Since I'm not much of a water person, I took along a knitting project that I haven't touched in about a year. I knitted Nat a poncho last year then started on Shelby's and it ended up on the back burner. Well now come fall she will finally have her poncho too.

Then baby Zach stopped by on his way HOME! Yay! My niece had to drop off her surplus milk to be stored in our freezer. Let's just say she's been VERY productive. She said the doctor and nurses kept pulling more and more bags out of the freezer, and everyone was surprised at the amount she had stored. I'm sure the NICU is glad to have the freezer space back!

Little Zach came home on his 5 week birth day. His due date is still a month away--July 4th. He looked tiny in his little car seat, and the girls were thrilled to catch a glimpse of their new baby cousin finally!

After the girls had their bath, we had ice cream sundaes. Yeah, I could get used to this whole having days off thing...

Ditto about the pictures.

Glad Zach came home, and I hope he will THRIVE from here on out. ;)
