I temporary lost sight of reality and took 5 kids to Union Station.....which includes Science City, the model trains, the KC Rail Experience and lunch at Fritz's in Crown Center. We're soaking it all up, peeps.......saying goodbye to Kansas City soon enough......so we're loving it while we can.
Carter invited Jake and Luke......take a look at these yahoos. Lainey and Jack came, too. Notice I called them the yahoos and not the littlest punks. Irony.
Lainey did wear the most darling smock ever, given to her by Aunt Caroline and made my her friend, Cassie. I love, love, love it.
Some random bits:
***I'm working like a fool right now. As much as I can. Moving cross country is not cheap.
***Blake has been taking the kids to the pool TWICE a day. I can barely stand it once a week. The good news? Jack and Lainey are SWIMMING! Without life jackets, under water, swimming. They even play "tea party" on the bottom of the pool with Blake. Meaning, they go under water and pretend to drink tea and eat cookies......which means they open their eyes......something I haven't done since the 3rd grade, I believe.
***Our house should have been officially leased exactly 9 minutes ago. I'll tell you when it's totally official......but everything looked good per Blake's phone conversation this morning.
***I lost my momentum, but will get back on it soon. Have been going room to room and clearing out about 1/2 of what we own. It's exhausting. But, if we have a move date, I'll be inspired. Cross your fingers again.
***Now, we just have to settle on a place to live in California.......arrange the move.......and find jobs! See? I told you it would be easy.
Off to work!
