*The kids' first day of school went great. They were super excited and came home with lots of stories.
*Yesterday we went for a hike. It was a super long one, leaving all three of us exhausted! While it was very fun, I made the big mistake of both not drinking enough water and not eating enough throughout. I ended up feeling sick, cutting short dinner out with friends that night, and am still not feeling myself a day later. Lesson learned. :(
My dad brought a water bottle/fan. Whenever we would stop along the trail, he would pull it out and it felt incredible in that heat!
*Since I've either been in bed or on the couch all day, Chris has been entertaining the kids, which has included a marathon game session. :)
*It has been a bad week for Kendall with her constipation issues. We've made a little progress, but we have spent quite a lot of time in the bathroom with her on the toilet and me reading her a book (with usually little to show for our time).
*This morning while Chris was at church, I was sick of lying in bed, yet didn't feel up to doing anything. I ended up listening to a sermon by Matt Chandler. Chris had forwarded me a short clip of him last week and I immediately liked him.
*My homemade granola last week was a bust with the kids in their snacks. I'm going back to an old standby I know they like, homemade graham crackers.
No, I do not make them into fun shapes. They take way too long as it is! :)
