I’m actually really tired right now, so this is going to be a micro-report.
My day started out as usual with Tai Chi and breakfast before I got ready for school and headed out to meet up with Rowen for the walk to school. Michael and Rebecca were both at the school early for weight training and basketball practice respectively. Rebecca and her team had a morning practice today instead of having one after school and then having their playoff game on Saturday. We had another quiet day at school, though also got a bit of extra homework for the weekend because we’ll be writing tests in pretty much every subject over the next two weeks leading into March Break.
Michael was at the Inn again tonight, so I was on my own; and helped Mom out with getting everything ready for dinner and travel story time with our family. Grandma and Grandpa came over early to hang out with us, but Aunt Leanne stayed late because of month-end work; so Grandpa picked up Zack from KidZone and brought him over so that Aunt Leanne didn’t need to do that after work.
Dad and the rest of our uncles, aunts, and cousins eventually joined us; and we sat down to eat shortly after the doctors rounded out our group after closing the clinic for the weekend. The daily recaps came first during dinner before Grandma and Grandpa started telling their amazing travel stories; and they then kept us all entertained until around ten o’clock; when the parents with younger kids decided that it was time to head home and get their little angels – or cranky cousins – home and off to bed. It wasn’t long after that before I was helping out with getting Ethan and Ehlana into bed; and then I came up to my room once they’d been tucked in for the night.
I’ve finished the basic nightly computing and some family business work that needed to get done tonight, and once I’m finished with this update; I’m heading off to sleep too. It’s really been a fun night, and we’re going to have some more fun tomorrow at the Maple Valley Winter Festival; so I really do want to re-charge tonight so I’ll be ready for that little adventure. Michael can’t go along with us tomorrow because he’s going to stay with his Dad at the Inn while Miranda and Rebecca are at the basketball game, and Rowen and Tim are both going to be working too; but we will have Naomi and Aiden with us so that’ll be fun for Mom, Dad, and me.
I don’t have anything else to cover tonight, and really am ready to crash for a while; so, until next time...
...May the Magi Force be with you!
