Matt was home all day yesterday and it was a great, busy day. The girls rode their scooters to school in the morning while I walked. BIG MISTAKE! It took Kendal 18 minutes to ride DOWNHILL about 6 blocks. She can walk faster than she can scoot! She was so cute though, she kept stopping and saying "my yeg hurts mom" and rubbing her tight little thigh. I told her to change legs and she tried it once or twice and then said "No, yis one feels better"and then she would change back to the other leg.
Matt mowed the lawn while I stained the deck. That worked out great. Matt HATES yardwork and mowing the lawn, but he is a good guy and did it just for me. Emmitt usually sleeps the morning away, but he didn't yesterday which made it a little hard. I also got to clean out a few flowers beds and just play in the dirt. It was a wonderful afternoon. Matt had to go look at a horse and took Kendal to help. It is kind of nice when he can work here in town!!
Kelsey had a soccer game at 6:00. This year she plays with just 7 and 8 year old girls. It is a WHOLE lot different from the past 2 years! They actually PLAY soccer. I was amazed at how good the girls are and how aggressive they are! Holy smokes!
Kendal wouldn't leave the corner cone alone so Matt had to tickle her with it for a good 15 minutes to keep her busy. I have gone to the 2 previous soccer games alone and in the rain/wind/cold. It was wonderful to have Matt at this game to keep Kendal busy.
Kelsey is #4 and I am amazed at how well she plays. They say you play as well as those you play with or against. It is so true. She is a little scrapper and gets in there really well.
Emmitt was an angel during the soccer game. Thank Goodness! After the soccer game Matt had to go check out a sick dog and I got a hair cut! It was a wonderful evening. The girls were in bed before 9:00 which is okay I guess. Their bedtime has been 8:30 all winter and now that it is so light and nice, it is hard to get them to bed at 8:30 anymore. They were in bed at 8:30 the past few nights and Kelsey complained that she had to go to bed when it was still light outside. The joys of spring and summer!
