Yesterday I successfully got my kids to school on time, got myself to the county Title and Tag office to buy a license tag for my 80 lb lab mix dog, sat in a college english class attempting to write a review of a 1930’s blues singer names Memphis Minnie. By 11:00am, I was taking an exam in my General Psychology class, then back home to grab lunch before driving to the school to pick up my kids.
My son and I spent the afternoon taking apart, sanding, painting, and patching inner tubes on an single speed beach cruiser that he found in the trash in our neighborhood. It is amazing what you can do with a little elbow grease, and the stuff that is haunting a garage. 2 sheets of sandpaper, and a lot of elbow grease later, we had successfully renovated it enough to make a decent bike for my oldest daughter.
They had a blast riding it around the block. Of course the real challenge is convincing him not to keep on taking it back apart now. Ah…. raising geniuses can be hard work!
Later on my friend brought her 3 girls over to play with my 4 kids while she attended a meeting, and we all went swimming, painted some pretty pictures,
played tea party,
had some dinner.
