After our long holiday weekend I will keep this short and sweet just like my run for the day.
I had planned on getting up early to run in the morning before the rest of the family but I completely forgot to set an alarm and slept in until it was time to wake with everyone else.
Cannon had “school” again after last week off. One thing that I will always be grateful for from this time is getting to see Cannon interact at school.
Of course I would rather have everyone safe and Cannon in school socializing like he should but I love seeing him interact with his teacher and friends.
Emmy joined us for school time playing Homer on her fire tablet.
After school we went to the library where you can check out books online and have them delivered right to your car. We have been enjoying new books every week and there are great playgrounds near the library as well.
It was sunny and beautiful so we spent some time playing before it was time to run home for lunch.
During nap time Cannon cuddled with Humphry while I got a short run in on the treadmill. I love how these two are bonding. Humphry even sleeps on Cannon’s bed at night.
After Emmy woke up I decided I wanted to get them outside again (1000 hours outside). We were discussing where to go, when a friend texted asking if we wanted to meet, perfect!
Cannon and Emmy got to see of their favorite friends and I got to see one of my friends and it was such a reminder that human connection is so important. We want to be respectful and careful in the face of a pandemic but we feel that distanced outside it’s safe enough and so good for our hearts.
After playing we decided it was a pizza and movie night. I used to love the movie Elf and wanted the kids to love it too. But as it was playing the kids were not that into it and I realized it probably isn’t my favorite anymore. Still good but not what it used to be for me, funny how things change over the years.
What are your favorite Christmas movies?
Did you have a childhood dog?
