I have a full-time job at RTS, and Melissa has a full-time job with Sam. We also each have the part-time job of raising support. Add to that the random things that jump into your schedule, and there can be some really interesting days. Yesterday was one of those, and we thought you might like to see how it went.
Everybody up. Breakfast.
Jake to work. Commence flurry of phone calls between RTS & home, because M has no computer (see previous post) and can’t check very simple things, like “where is the nearest car wash, and when do they open?”
M & S to get oil change & car wash for a car we’ve been borrowing for the last year and are returning today. J, at work, prepares for missions presentation at a local church’s VBS.
1 more cell phone call, wherein J directs M to car wash by explaining a map she can’t see.
J to Capes’ to pick up Silas, who’s hanging out with M & S.
J & Silas meet M & S at church where we’re talking to VBS kids. S & S to nursery. (Silas: “A-Sam. A-Sam. I play with Sam.”)
Finish presentation. M, S, & S to our house for lunch & naps. J back to RTS.
J eats lunch at desk while preparing for 1:15 meeting with RTS higher-ups. M somehow negotiates getting both boys down for naps. I haven’ t asked her how this worked.
J in meeting, M works on packing boxes and sorting junk from stuff to keep.
Silas wakes up. M & Silas hang out.
Sam wakes up. M, S, & S to playground.
M & boys pick J up from work. Back home, all 3 boys roughhouse while M makes dinner.
Carol Ann Trent arrives with Silas’ s sisters to pick him up. Sam immediately throws milk on kitchen floor. Ryann, terrified by neighbor’s cat, gets stranded outside our front door, wailing in terror. J puts Silas’ seat in Carol Ann’s car. Ryann (who’s calmed down some) bumps head getting into car, melts down again. Natalie goes through our stuff asking questions, some of which are awkward. Sam really wants some of Daddy’s tea.
J & S upstairs for Sam’s bath. M straightens downstairs for guests on the way.
Life Group arrives for game night. S to bed.
J & M look at S in crib, talk about how awesome he is, imitate his funny stuff from the day. Then to bed.
All in all, a pretty good day.
