We went to the kids' Family Night for their school. It was at the local rec center, and they had free pizza and activities going on there. Jerry and I picked up my friend Andrea's son, because Andrea was sick. So we took the three boys and they had a blast.
This morning, the kids had their first swimming lesson. It was awful. Noah did just fine, but Eli was acting like a completely bratty two-year old. He didn't want to get in the water, didn't want to listen to the teacher, etc. I made him get in, and the teacher had to hold him in the water while he kicked and tried to claw his way out. He's not scared of the water at all--but he wants to use a life jacket, and I want him to learn to swim. Anyway, the teacher said that if he does it next week, she'll have someone else help teach the class (there are only 3 kids total) and she would work one-on-one with Eli.
Today was Eli's birthday party. He turned 6 last Saturday, but since Jerry was working, we had his party today. Since he loves roller skating now, we had his party at the roller rink. I wasn't planning on skating, but a lot of the parents were, so I changed my mind and got some skates on. I hadn't worn roller skates since I was about 7 years old!
My mom and Jerry's mom both decided to try it out, too. I was worried about my mom falling, but Jerry helped her around the rink too ;)
|Jerry's mom, Jerry, and my mom... his job was to hold them up, apparently ;)|
Eli had a cake from Sam's Club (the best cakes!!) with buttercream frosting, which you all know is my weakness. I didn't eat any cake while we were at the party, but I planned on having a corner piece (with lots of frosting) at home. So I insisted everyone take cake home for their families, and we only wound up with about 5 pieces left over.
There is a chance our friends Joe and Amber might come over tonight to play some board games, but I'm not sure if that's going to happen or not. I better get the house cleaned anyway! (It's kind of funny--when I was cleaning, Noah asked me if someone was coming over. When I asked him why, he said, "Because you're cleaning" lol)
