Monday started a week of the kids getting to sleep in a bit, and me as well, while Heather’s mom took them in to school after breakfast. Apparently some of the kids in Gideon’s class got an idea to build a Leprechaun trap and he brought that plan home. So after the trap was set and we finished dinner Heather and Grandma read them both Gideon’s latest class book. This was so they could go out for some shopping and not get back until the kids were in bed. Cecilia picked Creative Galaxy for a show.
I read them two Fly Guy books, one for Cecilia and one for Gideon, but they shared so they each got two full stories.
Tuesday a little boy was bummed when he hadn’t caught a Leprechaun overnight, and devastated when one hadn’t visited by the time he got home. We figure this had to come from Kindergarten because it’s never been this strong of an event in the past. For a bedtime show Gideon picked Postman Pat.
The kids both had Heather and her Mom read them Fly Guy books. They have had quite the thing for these books lately.
Wednesday Heather and I went off-site for dinner and time to go over finances and future planning. While we technically could do this at home the kids get in the way before they go to bed, and after they’re in bed Heather’s about done for the day. (Contrasted with my difficulty in helping them out in the morning.) I do know Cecilia Picked Creative Galaxy.
Grandma read stories to them, but I didn’t find out which ones.
Thursday I was in charge of getting Grandpa from the airport. Of course, that wasn’t going to happen until late as he was coming in on the last flight. And it got delayed. Gideon had earlier told Grandma he could stay up and go get grandpa with me, but she assured him that wouldn’t work out so well. Gideon picked Mike the Knight.
Cecilia had Heather’s mom and I read from the Pinkalicious Storybook.
Gideon had Heather’s mom and I read him Fly Guy stories.
Friday was Gideon’s birthday. Heather and her parents went and got Sonic and Cecilia and treated Gideon to a special lunch at school. He fought to open presents early all evening after school until eventually we did when dinner was all cleaned up. Cecilia picked Creative Galaxy after eating some cake.
Cecilia had Grandma and Grandpa read her some small red books. I’m not sure exactly but they are probably learning to read style books.
Gideon had Grandpa and me read him Fly Guy books.
Saturday was party prep day. It was also “get to the store and get the last of Gideon’s baseball equipment” day followed by their second baseball practice. It was Gideon’s first as he was in Colorado for the one prior. It’s coach pitch baseball and the practice seemed to go well. Gideon picked Miles From Tomorrowland after dinner.
I wasn’t involved in reading stories, but it looked like Gideon had Heather and Grandma read him Fly Guy books. Cecilia had them read something from her room.
Sunday we had a birthday party for Gideon. All but one of the invited guests was able to be there. As they are now 6 it was a parent drop off situation. It made for a crazy house over the afternoon, but it seemed to go well. The kids all looked like they had fun even though our craft failed to be realized and we ended up with no car race as we had hoped to finish the day. After a little Amazing Race over a picnic dinner Cecilia picked Creative Galaxy.
Cecilia had Big Snowman Little Snowman from Grandma and Pinkalicious Pink Around the Rink from Grandpa.
Gideon had Grandpa read him his library book from school, something about Labrador’s. He had Grandma read him fly guy because he was getting too tired for the other book a second time.
