Sorry about the frustrated post last night. It was just one of those days. Today has been much, much better. Everyone slept well last night (well, Abby was up to her usual tricks, but there were no bad dreams), our morning routine went smoothly, and we even managed to get out of the house early! My hike was great - it wasn't too hot, and I was able to get to know some of my new friends a lot better. We had a nice, relaxing family afternoon with no planned activities, and got the girls tucked into bed by 7. So maybe Wednesdays are just going to be the worst day of the week, the day when the go go go catches up with us. Thursdays will be the day we catch our breath, and then, it's Finally Friday!
Perry and I have had some good conversations about Sarah the past couple of days, and we have some thoughts about how to help her adjust and also how to manage her Type A personality. I like Lane's idea about some kid-friendly meditation/relaxation ideas for Abby, to help her settle down at night. We'll have to work on that.
Sarah watched a Radio Disney concert video this afternoon in the basement. She was dancing away, loving life, and it was so refreshing to see! She asked if we could get a disco ball to put in the basement! Perry laughed, but I love that idea! How fun!
