Monday we started the week by heading to the book fair at Gideon’s school after dinner. The kids each got to pick out one book. They started by going almost straight for the two books they just ordered. This was a little impressive as there were at least a dozen small bookcases displaying their wares. We did convince them both to get something new though. When we got home we watched Jake and the Neverland Pirates by way of Cecilia’s choice.
Cecilia had us both read her new Barbie a True Princess book.
Gideon brought home another class book. I’m starting to think they make a new book every day. Heather and I split reading it to him.
Tuesday was patent-teacher conferences for Gideon. Grandma Nelson got to hang out with the kiddos for longer than we thought it would take. Also, the cable was out. They did pretty well though. Because the cable was out there were no shows. Because we got back so late it was one story per child. Cecilia had Heather read her a story and I just talked with her briefly. Gideon had yet another class book which Heather and I split reading to him.
Wednesday I got to take Cecilia to her dance class for the first time. Gideon got to stay at Love to Grow on until 5:45 or so. After dinner and a bit of a rough night Gideon picked Jake and the Neverland pirates.
It was another night of repeated readings. Heather got to read both kids et another classroom book from Gideon. I’m pretty sure we’re averaging 2 a week at this point. I got to read a new book about construction and building that Gideon picked up from their book fair. He had a $6 gift certificate from the summer reading program that he got to spend how he wanted. He also picked up two bookmarks, one for his sister, and an eraser shaped like a gamepad.
Thursday was our new small group. That means we got home too late for a show. They also only got one story each due to time. I believe Heather read to both of them and I’m really not sure what she read.
Friday we watched the Huisinga kids. They picked Octonauts for a show. After I left with the kids Heather read to the kids.
Cecilia picked the Berenstain Bears Easter while Gideon wanted part of his new Hotwheels book he got from the book fair.
Saturday we got flu shots as a family. Cecilia didn’t do so well Gideon wasn’t to hip on the idea either, but once it happened he was super proud and no longer afraid. He was asking when he next time he could get a shot was. After church, some time at a park, and three more acts from the semi-finals of America’s got talent Cecilia picked Dora for our night-time show.
Cecilia had mom read her the Tonka sounds books while I read her Gideon’s Ninja Turtles Pizza Party book.
Gideon read Sheep Blast Off with both Heather and I.
Sunday was a bit of a low-key day. We had originally been planning o hit a couple parks. We figured we’d get outside in the morning and afternoon. Then Cecilia didn’t feel good. Neither did Heather. Cecilia we think just got spun around a little too much at the first park. Heather was coming down with something. After starting the finals for America’s Got Talent (we’ll start Amazing Race before Christmas, I’m sure of it) Gideon picked our show. I don’t actually remember what it was.
Cecilia had Heather read her the Ninja Turtles Pizza Party book after which I read her Pirate Fairy.
Gideon was going to have me read his new Machines book, couldn’t find his new Hotwheels book, and ended up with both of us reading Sheep Blast Off again.
