First, this week we had three days of TAKS testing at our house. For the last few years (ever since the first TAKS test was taken in our family), we have a tradition of going to Sonic after every test. This week, we got to go three times.
Also, this week, C and I finished his Space Derby and he got to race it on Wednesday at Pack Meeting. It was fun. :)
Now for this perfect afternoon/evening: First, I actually have my kids on a Friday night and I LOVE it. I love being laid back with them and just enjoying being together. At this very moment we are outside. It is dark and cool and we will probably all have a few mosquito bites, but we are together. I even have my laptop outside...oh, the blessings of technology!
Right after school, I took the kids to the museum. C loves to build things and concentrates very hard:
LD loved these rotating sand tables. He said that he was going to stay there all day and he practically did!
K and S love the creative crafty area and were there enjoying the relative peace of the museum this afternoon.
As a surprise for K, her best friend (that lives in another city) and her family met us at the museum. I tried to capture the moment that K and E first saw each other, but I missed it. K's face is still elated in this picture, though:
Here they are again. Truly best friends!
C's finished building. He was very careful to make a stage that a wheelchair could go on and included many ramps. He will be an ADA developer when he grows up!
Tonight, we were all out enjoying the perfect weather when K looked up and saw the sun with perfect rays in the afternoon sky. It was gorgeous! :)
We ordered pizza and had it delivered (never happens at our house). It was a very fun moment. Then, we grabbed a blanket and had an impromptu picnic outside in the front yard.
