Friday


At dinner last night Abbott said that at times he'd wished this day was already over and at times he'd wished it would never end. I felt that way too, at times. There had been nearly continuous fighting and a general lack of cooperation throughout the day. On the other hand, I had really nice time alone with each of them while the other had their swim lesson. Another highlight was when Cal said, with pride, that he was finally able to play "that hard song" (on the piano).

Alexi's father is coming to town today and we're really looking forward to spending some time with him. He's joining us to go camping!

Happy Friday! xo

There's almost always a mixture of good and disappointment in each of our days. Smart of Abbott to realize it.

Looks like you're going to have a lovely weekend! Enjoy every minute.

I think Abbott and I were thinking alike yesterday; it was one of those days where I felt like all I was doing was managing/tempering moods and emotions, mine included.
Have a wonderful weekend camping!
