Don't worry guys, Marly got into the magnet program. Thank you for all the concerned follow up texts- glad to know we have a readership!I spent Monday morning in the magnet office and the afternoon on the phone- of course Phil's call was the one that sealed the deal. We got the for real letter on Saturday. Phew! Turns out it was an issue on THEIR end. (Phew!). I think the 'sibling preference' is really what saved us. So happy to move on from that ordeal! Another week just flew by! I broke out in this nasty rash on my lips and face from I think some lipgloss I was allergic to? So I sported this nasty rash all week and I'm happy to report it looks somewhat normal today. I totally confident person would have taken a pic, but that is not me. We watched extra kids this week. We had Alice on Tuesday and Wednesday- walking on Tuesday through Ortega and then ballet and swimming on Wednesday. We had Lola on Thursday. Those worked out as easy play dates for me. We did a pm play date at the Harmons on Wednesday. We tried to do a pm playdate at the pool on Friday after school but the sky opened up. I've been so wiped out in the evenings due to my benadryl (for the rash). Voss had his 15 month appointment on Wednesday. He's now 23 pounds and 30.5 inches tall- a big guy! Marly had a family picnic at school on Thursday. We kept the party going at the pool. On Friday we rode bikes/I ran with the double stroller to school, then coffee club. We had a decent discussion on GMO's. Friday night we went to John's Birthday party- an old school house party with flip cup and beer pong- super fun! Saturday morning was nice and low key. Phil made breakfast. I took the older girls on a fun run. We went to Steve Harmon's Birthday back yard BBQ with the kids. A quick babysitter snafu then we came back without the kids to Kerri's 40th Birthday party. Day of fun! This morning we went to mass then breakfast at TCC. A few errands then Sunday Funday began. We took the boat to TCC for swim team sign ups. Finally all our FYC friends came over to our pool. It's going to be busy for us. Don't expect lots of pictures at the pool this year. I'm chasing Voss all over the place, while keeping an eye on the other 3. Matching bathing suits is going to be the only way to do it this year. I have to keep track of these people! We stayed for dinner then took the boat back. Everyone is asleep. Sign of a good time!
