As you may or may not know my granddaughter Sarah spent the night with me Saturday night. Meanwhile, Katie spent the night at my son's house to babysit for baby Jack. This way my son and his wife could get away for a few hours while Katie made some extra cash.
I really expected Sarah to arrive worn out. She had to cheer at two games, and then went to a FOUR Hour birthday party before she even came over. Those must be some super human parents to have a four hour party with seven year olds! When she did come over, she was ready to go. I decided that we would go and see...
We ate tons of popcorn and drank lots of soda. I will try and remember next time that grandma's bladder is much older than Sarahs ! We left the theater happy, full of popcorn and Dots stuck in our teeth! What more could we ask for? We got home around 8:30 and weren't ready for bed yet, despite the fact that it was past Sarahs bedtime. She reminded me twice that there was no school tomorrow! So we watched funny cat and dog videos on You Tube. Before we knew it, it was 11:30p.m. and we were by this time, ready for bed!
I knew I wouldn't get much sleep that night. My granddaughter is a known BED HOG! We have four beds in the house but she always wants to sleep with grandma. I think I got about three hours of sleep in. But it was worth it for this...
Sarah had a busy day indeed! The next morning I fixed us some bacon and waffles after which we colored for an hour or more.
After coloring we read some Junie B. Jones. I have had this series of books since Katie was in Kindergarten. Sarah has always loved for me to read them to her and I enjoy them so much. They are very funny! Sarah can read so well now that she suggested that we take turns reading chapters. I was truly amazed at her reading skills! And we always have several hysterical laughing fits while reading Junie B.!
We decided to head back to Sarahs house around noon Sunday. I wanted to spend some time with my son, his wife and baby Jack. The weather has been such as of late that it's made that difficult. So off we went and after we arrived we had a great visit. I didn't get to see much of my son as he was working in the garage on his truck. I tried to get his picture but he said "No" as he was covered in grease! I still thought him handsome but had to respect his wishes! But I did get to hang out with my daughter-in-law and baby Jack.
Sorry about the red eye but it's hard enough to get him to stand still and smile for me at the same time, so there was no time for any camera adjustments!
When it was time to leave, Katie, as I suspected, wanted to drive home. Wow there's a surprise. So after a little bit of blackmail I let her drive home. You know, " You can drive home if you let me take your picture!". Well it worked. Not only did she drive us back to town, but I let her also drive through town to the video store. She's really doing well. And as you can see she is taking the driving thing very seriously!
Well there you have it. I have used the New Post Editor for Blogger. I am going to publish this and hopefully it will come out alright. There are different options that I haven't tried yet. I just wanted to test it first. I do like the way you can add photos much better then the older version.
