Fun Day

The girls didn't have school today and I failed to plan anything fun to do (wanted to avoid the school holiday crowds at the mall play area and places like Kidz Bounce).  But for the last several months there have been many days where I have all kinds of great intentions to do x, y and z with the girls at home (crafts, games, practice writing their letters, etc.) but never quite get around to it because I end up just doing household chores and what-not while they play.

So today I decided to make a list, and I was going to try and actually do all but one or two things on the list, and we did!  Here was my list:
  • Play a game
  • Do a puzzle
  • Go to Fred Meyer (not because it's fun, but we needed groceries)
  • Dance
  • Practice writing their names and other letters
  • Play with a toy that hasn't been played with in a long time
The only one we didn't do was the last one.  In addition, one of their friends came over and played with them for an hour and a half or so.  To top it off, we got delicious Thai takeout for dinner.  It was a great day.

It's so weird--it already feels like forever since they went to school but it's only been since Friday.
