The end of the week has been pretty busy around here --hockey games, scouting activities, yard work, school work and tests for the kids to study for. Seems like Thursdays are the busiest.
I need to catch up on my Blog Challenge and I'm going to do that today. I have days 4-6, I think.
Friday, I went to a great consignment sale that I've now come to look forward to each Fall and Spring. I practiced with the Moby Wrap so that I could shop this sale with ease with Lily. She hung in there like a champ! (pun intended) I was really happy with my finds for her for the winter months! (I HATE spending a lot of money on clothing.)
Saturday, Andrew, had his first Scout activity to go to. He and George headed off to the Shoot-O-Ree to do boy stuff...shoot bb guns and the like.
And yes, since it's Pittsburgh, "shooting" means hockey too!
The girls and I headed to Reagan's hockey game.
We've been working on lessons of responsibility with the kids recently and Saturday was one of those lessons learned for the 6 year old.
Reag forgot her hockey gear at home.
Typically, it's in the trunk of the car. I asked before we left to make sure she had her stuff and she said, "Yes." We got to the game, opened the trunk and there was her stick and that's it.
Yikes. Helmet, jersey, gloves missing.
She was bummed.
She was bummed.
Her coach had a jersey for her to borrow, but without a helmet--no go. George and Andrew had finished up at the Shoot-O-Ree and were on their way home. They stopped, got her gear and headed to her game. But, for the majority of the game, she watched from the bench and her gear arrived in time only for her to play the last few minutes.
She was a disappointed little girl.
Lily enjoyed the game by napping in the Moby Wrap!
(It's kinda like being pregnant again...with the baby on the outside.)
In between hockey games, George worked on trimming the trees that are close to the house so that hopefully the squirrel who loves to jump onto the roof of our house and run laps will find another place to run.
( I LOVELOVELOVE that my husband is so 'handy'!)
It was back to hockey shortly after for Andrew's hockey game last evening:
Lily watched her big brother with her Daddy for a little while...
...then cozied back up in the Moby with Mama for the rest of the game.
We had a pretty busy Saturday and are looking forward to a relaxing Sunday.
