Oh how I love a good non-drama filled normal day.
Home study notary certified...in literally 35 seconds....after driving an hour and a half...but I digress...
and then we walked across the street to a cute little bistro across from the courthouse for lunch.
This, I should clarify...was not lunch. But is Justin in his element digging for dinosaur bones at the Children's Museum.
Where we had such a phenomenal time that I ended up paying an additional $40 to get the family annual pass.
The family pass that allows 2 adults
Do you know that I actually got to write new kiddos names on the form and that they each have their own pass? Yep.
Such a little thing but such a big, big thing.
Joseph Samuel and J.....ahhhh, wait. That J name isn't for sure yet. We could have one very confused little boy come his first trip to the museum if we don't end up going with that name...but hey. I had to put something down on the form.
I don't think I could have been smiling any bigger as I was filling in their names.
What a neat moment.
(do people say neat anymore? How bout a radical moment?..no, that sounds too 80's. Groovy moment?...no...slightly before my time. Beast moment?...no, that sounds like my 13 year old. Hmmm...I think I'm gonna have to stay with neat.)
(PS If it's against some type of rule to write their names on a membership pass before you even have actual approval for them I don't want to know...please keep me in ignorance. :) It's the small moments that keep you going right?!)
On another note, perhaps one day I should write a post about why all the J names...less people think we are trying to imitate a certain large family that all start with J.
Yes. Yes I think I should.
J name post coming soon to a blog near you.
John, who has been home for a month now, in between the end of his previous school and the beginning of his next hung out with the older boys today..which included going out for the Mighty Meaty pizza.
Guy stuff I guess.
And that's it people. No problems, no setbacks, no unexpected turns that made me want to hurl.
Ahhh, love that.
Here's to more normal days ahead....Here, here!
