i can't believe summer is over. i was talking with some moms at the pool yesterday and we all said how this summer went so fast there was no time to even have a routine. we all wanted one. but there was too much going on for one.
and now school starts next week! we have a few more supplies to pick up. and a couple of fun things planned in the last four days.
i am ready for a regular routine of school buses and quiet days.
it turns out it is really hard to work a job and have kids at home all summer!
ha ha ha
but i am so grateful that i can be home most of the time though. i like these goofy kids. even with the fighting... towels on the floor... dirty dishes... empty fridge... late nights.... and all that.
it's all worth it.
on tuesday night we surprised the little girls and took them to the Taylor Swift concert!!! they were so excited! they kept their hands over their mouths for the first two songs...in shock.
annie and i were a different section from talby and craig. but we were on the same aisle so they kept running back and forth giggling and singing to each other. it was SO CUTE.
i was witnessing a true sister bond. i told craig "i'd be just as happy watching them watching taylor swift all night than the actual concert"
halfway through annie turned to me and screamed "LOOK WHAT WE WOULD HAVE MISSED??!! IF WE HADN'T BEEN HERE?!! WE WOULD HAVE MISSED ALL THIS GOODNESS!!!!" she really couldn't believe everything she was seeing.
and i thought Taylor Swift totally rocked the house. the concert version of Trouble was my favorite. it was LOUD and they remixed it with a violin and SUPER LOUD bass.
and the last song ended with a billion pieces of confetti and Taylor at the end of a suspended catwalk over the crowd.
yeah.... it was a great surprise.
so glad we did it.
ok... i think this cloudy rainy afternoon calls for making a cake.
