I worked the overnight shift last night, plus had two job interviews for second and third jobs, so I was very glad to finally make it home this morning! I had two boys very excited and waiting for me.
We had been gifted a lunch at a new pizza place! We took Barrett on a date, and he even got to play with pizza dough. We made a B, counted pepperonis and slices of pizza, and found circles and triangles.
Then all the children and I had t gather to pick up Papa for another date, this one a family culture night sponsored by our friend Sara. First, we went to the theater and watched the movie Kubo and the Two Strings, and then we looked at Japanese art.
Tomorrow Alex will get his present from us: new scriptures with his name on them for his baptism.
James Mission, a group that takes care of foster and adoptive youth, gave our family all new bikes this summer, and we have saved them for their birthdays this year. Alex will get his next week, and I am glad we waited so that Mary conquered riding a bike in her own right before it was Alex’s turn to take over…
And seriously, the question remains, do we really want Alex on wheels? Is the world ready for that? He is so ready for this new freedom! My little ones are growing up!
