Nothing overly exciting to report today.
We are sad about Mac T. It's going to be hard to get used to not seeing his fluffy brown body roaming through the house. His name was the first one Evan called for when we got home this afternoon. It's habit.
I had to go to work for a bit this morning. I had the boys pack a bag with any and every toy they wanted to play with at school. Basketballs and remote control cars are fun on an empty blacktop.
I got my work done, we ate and played at McDonald's, and then came home.
I got dressed for running, and the boys grabbed their bikes. I ran. They rode. We went to a neighborhood over, and I let them play on a playground park. It's always fun to play on new playground sets. We need to scout various neighborhoods looking for more of them!
Hudson did okay riding while I ran. Evan was great. He's an old pro at slowing at small intersections, yelling "clear," and pedaling across. I know that Hudson is safe if he stays close behind his brother.
I took a break on a bench while the kids played. It's kind of nice to break a run into two parts! I think I ran faster on the trip home.
Evan packed a backpack with a soccer ball and a nerf football. Then his brother refused to play with him. Hudson was only interested in the playground equipment. Evan practiced some soccer footwork.
I tried to get a picture of Hudson. Then my phone died. It's not holding a charge like it used to. Not sure what to do about that. That meant I had no lifeline and no music on the way home. I did fine with no music, and we didn't have any incidents requiring me to dial 911. Phew.
We ran/rode home, ate dinner, and now the kids are in bed before 8 p.m. That's the first time that has happened in several days. They NEED a decent night's sleep. Evan's been okay, but Hudson has been a pain. He's been argumentative, nasty and sullen. Fun times. Hopefully sleep will help this problem.
See? Just a ho hum kind of day.
