Oh! This week back to normal has been so tough! I think we were all in a bad mood (or maybe just me). MOPS saved me on Monday with a life coach. Eventually I'll do the blog, maybe tomorrow for the recap- but the last few minutes were great. She just spent too much time talking about her credentials. It did seem like MOPS is on the right track- here 3 main points were the last 3 MOPS themes! Monday was also Phil and my 13th wedding anniversary. After a weekend of partying we just sorta took it easy. I skipped book club and the discussion on Sing for your Life. We had Trents take out on our new balcony, with a bottle of champagne from my parents. We did our usual story time then tennis Tuesday. I've started meal planning, which is exciting. Another hot week! We ran to the pool on Wednesday and Abigail's pal, Kayla met us. Voss and I went to the zoo and Phil skipped tennis on Thursday so he was great helping with girl scout pick up. Friday was coffee club then an after party at Jessica's parent's house. Phil and I played in the Wine & 9 with the Hoggatts at TCC. Perfect evening to be out there! After party at Lillians. Saturday was April Fools Day. No joke, Elizabeth turned 8! She made us strawberry pancakes and we ate on the balcony. She and Phil went to her First Communion retreat. I took the kids to the TCC pool. That evening, we headed out for Ellie's Birthday party. Phil took the younger two to another party. I loaded up the older girls and picked up 4 more of Ellie's friends. Then we headed to a hotel with an indoor pool. My mom and sister met us there. It was kina sketch hotel- I could have used another star or two. I don't think the girls minded. They loved the indoor pool! We had pizza by the pool then moved the party inside. Suzanne did face masks for the girls. I did nails. We had cupcakes and opened gifts. Then, we settled down- ate twizzlers and M&Ms in bed while watching the Disney channel. I think the last girls fell asleep around 1! So today has been pretty rough! We got up and had breakfast then took everyone home. I think they all had a great time! We're moving into a new league now! She's so grown up! We did a Sunday funday in the pool with the Suters and Stevensons. The girls and I went to mass. And here we go!
