A few months ago I volunteered to help out at a local Catholic homeschooling information event. At the time, I knew DH would likely be working, but assumed my sister could help me out.
The event happened this weekend -- and DH was working, and my sister had company from out of town, so I took all 3 kids. It worked out just fine! I helped man a table for Catholic Heritage Curriculum and was able to check out some of their books I haven't seen, as well as some books from Seton and a few other organizations. It was so nice to be surrounded by so many wonderful Catholic homeschooling families and lots of kids! It was completely natural to sit behind the table and nurse L while talking with other moms who were thinking of using CHC, or who already used it. My boys stayed close by, and spent some time playing with a little boy from another family. The event was low-key, but informative and I hope it continues as an annual event. I donated some Usborne books for a door prize, and I hope the recipient was happy with the selection I donated.
Today we had breakfast at IHOP (yummy strawberry french toast), visited Home Depot and bought supplies to paint the living room (actual painting is planned for next weekend), swam in the pool for a while (even L was willing to be carried around the water for a while), enjoyed ribs on the grill for dinner. All in all, a very nice day.
I need to sit down with my notebook and make this week's to-do list. I don't know why I prefer to create my lists with pen and paper, but I do. There's something more "real" about writing things out, and then crossing them out. Something that I miss when I try to keep lists on my computer.
