Today was a good day! First, I got my new mattress this morning. It is very nice and I'm hoping that it'll be comfortable tonight. It has to be better than our old one. On our old one, we kept looking to see if it had a place to add air or something because it was getting flatter and flatter!LOL
Then my mom came over and took the kids to the park so that I could tutor my brother on writing an essay. He's almost got it all figured out. He needed help learning how to order his thoughts before the actual writing because he has a tendency to ramble. We spent a couple of hours using word-webs and I think after one or two more essays, he'll be ready to take his GED. He's been working so hard and I'm glad that I was able to help him towards his goal. His plan is to join the Army after he passes the GED.
While we were working, mom took the kids to lunch after the park and to a party store. The kids really like costumes and this is the time of year to get them cheap. Also, Genevieve's birthday is in 2 weeks and we're still trying to find a good theme. She had Dora last year and it was great! Birthday Express has these ultimate kits that come with everything except the cake and they deliver to your door. She really doesn't have any friends up here yet, so I really don't know what to do for her birthday. I'm guessing we'll buy her a kit and then maybe invite a neighborhood kid or two over. She is our party girl, so it needs to be special in some way.LOL
My older two are being industrious and are trying to accomplish their school work. Isaac is asleep and Genevieve went home with my mom, so all is quiet right now. I am so glad that Genevieve and my mom get along so well. They are a lot alike! They both always need to be busy and are very hard working. And they both like to shop!LOL
Well, I think I'm going to try out that new mattress of mine while I have the chance. LOL
