This morning we were able to quickly complete our tasks in the Children's Learning Center at our church. Then we went to Walmart so I could pick up a few groceries so we would make it through the weekend. While there they had 5 yard bolts of fabric for $5. That's a really good deal on fabric. I found two that I really liked. One is pink, it is a loose weave similar to monks cloth (I'm thinking a light-weight blanket for one of the girls.) and the other is a pale green with green and pink flowers. Katy found one that she wants to make a dress out of, it is green with daisies and blue, yellow and orange spots - I got the same pattern to use for the girls in pink with green, red, and yellow spots. So I guess I may have some more projects in the making. I'm thinking something with pleats for Katy...is that a hassle for ironing? I hope not because I don't manage to iron very often. Christmas is coming. I should start working on them soon if that is what I decide to do.
When we got home we ate lunch and the kids all went out to play. We are enjoying today. It's a reprieve from earlier this week when being a wife, mom and teacher wasn't going as smooth as it has been and the house was a complete wreck. I have a wonderful husband though, who came home Wednesday evening and just started to help - he didn't even say anything about it. Thanks Jeff, I was dreading walking back into the kitchen, knowing that I had no place to even think of making supper and it was already past supper time. I was thinking we were going to have to have milk and cold pop-tarts on napkins for supper, but instead we were able to at least have PBJ and chips.
