Naps were on the list for today and were well received.
Yesterday afternoon, Ryan, Katelyn, Mia and I went out and about. Hobby Lobby was our first stop as Katelyn needed to get some mats for her frames to put her latest drawings in. Then it was off to Petsmart to look for a few things. Mia got to go in and at first she was very nervous and shaking . . . when she was a puppy I would take her and she would get very nervous in the fish section. All of those creatures swimming around really made her nervous. We looked at all of the animals and fish - they had a beautiful Conure . . . I would love to have a large bird! This is what a Conure looks like, but is not the one we saw.
We also saw snakes, lizzards, cameleons, birds, mice, hamsters and gerbils. It was nice to just walk around and see the animals, crickets - for fishing, crabs, turtles, fish.
After Petsmart, we drove to TGI Friday's and I went in and placed an order for take out. We drove around for 20 minutes - or I should say, Katelyn drove around for 20 minutes and then we went back and picked up our most amazing dinner and headed home. Katelyn was excited to get in so much driving time - around 2 hours worth to add to her requirements before getting her license. We always told her she had to be 17 . . . I am freaking out a little because she turns 17 on Thursday. She won't be allowed to get her license yet . . . she needs much more time behind the wheel. Now, don't get me wrong - she does pretty good, but I don't feel that she has had sufficient time of learning. I pray that God will give me the peace I need when it is time to let her get her license.
Tomorrow starts Spirit week at school. The kids are pretty excited. Should be interesting to see what goes on throughout the week.
Time to close . . . have a great week!
