Monday morning started with an early 4:30 AM alarm so I can get some coffee in and get 4 miles in on the treadmill. I did a slight progression run as I woke up while running and it felt good to speed up.
Then I got the family up and made breakfast.
I feel like I don’t have enough go to breakfast options. This is a staple for us, both kids like mushrooms so I added some baby portobellos to our eggs.
I took a quick shower before Cory “went” to work and came out to this cute scene, they love to read books together.
We spent the morning driving to a Target that was much further away than our normal Target. There was a great sale on a cute Frozen toy that I really wanted to get Emmy and this was the closest store that had it (on sale!). We also found a bunch of DVDs for the car that were less than $3 each! Worth the trip =)
Our car has a DVD system that we use on road trips.
After lunch the kiddos and I made cookies, Cannon’s favorite cookies are Grinch Cookies .
I had two amazing helpers/taste testers.
After we were done with cookies Cory was done with work, so he took the kids to go ride bikes.
Cannon loves to help pull the wagon to the park where there is a flat place to ride. Our street and driveway are too steep for learning to ride bikes.
They met a Great Dane that they wanted to bring home.
I stayed home so I could clean up the kitchen from our cookies but I fell asleep on the couch with a headache (whoops)! At least my headache was gone when I woke up.
We did veggie burgers for dinner then put the kiddos to bed. Later I read my email and found one from Cannon’s school inviting us to a (virtual) open house and countdown to Kindergarten.
I know it’s good for him to grow up and for him to learn and become more independent but I am just so sad thinking of him going to school for a full day. I try to remind myself that he loves school but I will always see him as my little baby.
What are your favorite breakfasts?
Any tips for surviving sending your first off to Kindergarten? This isn’t until August but I am trying to prepare myself!
