Blah, blah, blah......that's the kind of day you get when all of your young children have been up way too late the night before. Between all the bickering, whining, complaining, crying, hitting, screaming, instigating, and retaliating, we were ready to call it a day before it even began. Throw in 3 hockey events, a sick baby, and an obstinate girl who is hyper-cranky from 4 days of oral steroids, and you've got one real winner of a day.
On the up-side, Lyle is still alive(for a brief time this morning, we feared he was on the side of the road somewhere from the late night before), and Laura is finally breathing well. She has only taken preventative nebs today, and made it to and back from a cold hockey arena without being thrown into breathing difficulties. Hooray! For some reason, she was looking forward to church all day, and was very happy to finally go with Grandma this afternoon. Crispy learned how to skate backwards today! It is pretty cool, especially since he just barely learned how to skate forwards! Michael had another hockey scrimmage this evening, and they played very well...it was fun to watch...still no fights, though. Jonny got to read over 2 hours to finish his new book, and made dinner for all of his younger siblings that he babysat tonight. Now it is off to bed early tonight to try to catch up on some much needed sleep.
