Tuesday was another Ice Day, but not for everyone. Mommy had to go in to work at 11:00, so Daddy and the boys hung out at home for a while. Nana was home and ready to entertain, and the boys were happy to get out of the house for a change of scenery. Wednesday brought a bit of snow, but school was back to normal. This was Beau's face about going back to school . . . super sad. I'm willing to bet that he had a great time once he got inside. He was telling all of the fun things he did with his friends and teachers at pick up, so apparently it wasn't that bad!
Lincoln's reaction to going back to school on Wednesday wasn't nearly as dramatic. He was a little sluggish when getting ready for school, but Mommy had library duty and saw the excited little Kindergartner in his element.
We came home to make chicken tacos for dinner and had lots of fun jumping rope (indoors), reading library books, and eating a few Popsicles. Beau had a hard time settling down for bed, and he came out a few times too many. Luckily, he knows how to work his sweet/cute face!
Thursday morning was better, and everyone went off to school just fine. The boys liked being picked up a bit early, and we came home to have an early dinner and deliver Beau's birthday party invitations to our neighborhood friends. The got dressed in their hoodies to tape the invites to doors. Brother hug!!!
After our cold invitation deliveries, Lincoln asked for a few science experiments. Why not? Beau donned his safety glasses quickly and was ready to begin.
Lincoln was so happy that we made time for science experiments on this cold night! He had a ton of questions about what we would being doing.
We did an experiment of water, red food coloring, vegetable oil, and salt. When the salt hit the liquid, it made lava-like bubbles. So fun, but the picture isn't the best. We had lots of lava before the camera came out!
Next up was making Oobleck . . . a weird liquid/solid/gooey substance that they loved. Corn starch, water, and a bit of stirring made this experiment fun. Goggles made it more fun!
After so much fun, it was time for baths and bed. We read another chapter (thankfully almost the last) of Captain Underpants, then the boys were sent to bed. They seriously have ants in their pants about going to bed, and they keep coming out a million times. At the announcement of the LAST TIME ANYONE CAN COME OUT, we hoped for a quiet night. Beau had another idea . . . he grabbed his horn and played extremely loudly along with his nursery rhyme CD. It's 11:00 pm, go to sleep!!!
So we have tons on fun, and we stay up too late. But at least we are having tons of fun while we are staying up too late.
