Ok, I spoke too soon about this stellar sleep. I think all the swimming backfired! Will now wakes up starving and won't go back to sleep! After a 3AM car ride last night I think we will skip swimming tonight!!
Back to today: Em had gymnastics but first look at these binoculars Brad made for Emma?!?! I was impressed. They went to Michael's to get all the supplies and them made these bad boys!!!
Every gymnastics class should end with a race!!
And every day should end with a dog pile!!!
Tonight no one would go to sleep. Below is the motley crew that could not calm down and sleep so we loaded everyone up in the car for a ride. Em was asleep before we could drive down main street and Wilbie was not far behind! Amazingly, we got everyone back in the house still snoozing!! Norris parents for the win!!!
I had to order Wilbie some new clothes.....2T!!! Will and Em can wear the same shorts!! Below Em is wearing Will's shorts while Will is protesting sharing his clothes!
Saturday in the summer = pool day!!! We went to the pool and the kids discovered the joy of the game corn hole!!! Late that night Allison and her parents came over the eat and play!
Em picked out the gift all by herself: a purple polo and these sport socks!
After church and lunch we went to the pool to complete the day. I have never seen Wilbie so tired than at the pool!! He could not even pick his head up to look around!!!
Wilbie does sleep!!!!!
Well, this might seem a little gross and it is but Em noticed my feet were not as ummm smooth as her feet. She now she likes to rub lotion on my feet!! She then proceeds to rub lotion on her feet so "they will never get all scratched up like mom's".
Parenting fail! Tonight I was so tired of both Em and Will begging for snacks after we just ate supper. After a few minutes of saying "no snack!" I decided I would let them eat an apple thinking no way would they jump for an apple. Wrong!!! Plan backfired and they happily ate apples.
Tuesday.. or Soccer day in the Norris house hold! We have this plan down for now. Brad takes Em to soccer.. I take Wilbie to the gym then we all meet at soccer to watch!
As I came in today they were actually playing a soccer game! Yes, it was a herd of kids following the ball but they were all trying to kick it! I feel we have made progress as a soccer class/team!!
If I have not said this before I should be ashamed, I love our church!! Tonight they put on a stellar shrimp boil with all the fixins and a ton of fun to be had! Water balloons, bad mitten, giant jenga and the list can go on.
Em had a small.. ok large... melt down at this wonderful shrimp boil due to a piece of cheese getting stuck on the roof of her mouth. I agree, not the most comfortable thing, but not worthy of that melt down! After the melting was done we continued the fun with popsicles and water balloons!
Still playing soccer!
My 16 month old looks 3!!
Em and Reese enjoying a lovely conversation over popsicles!
