Quiet Night

Amanda had a meeting at church last night, so I stayed in with the kids.  I was thinking about taking them bowling, but with all the hustle and bustle of Tuesday night I decided it was better to stay in.  I ate some leftover homemade pizza from Monday evening and the kids had mac & cheese.  It warms my heart to see how much they like it, particularly Noah.  When I was little I could never decide if I that or pizza was my favorite food.

I did do a little parental cheating.  Noah played games on my iPod Touch for about 45 minutes and Lily caught up on her episodes of the Backyardigans on the Roku.  Noah went down fighting when I took the iPod Touch away and I have to remember that I told him no games tonight because of how he reacted.  Lily took a bath and went down peacefully.  I then settled into getting the formatting right for a paper I need to turn in.  It's a little frustrating to spend 5-6 hours writing and then have to spend another 1-2 hours getting the spacing just right.  I guess I shouldn't complain too much because it's a little easier to do this with Word than it would be with a typewriter.

Overall, it was a pretty uneventful evening.  The day was a little more busy as Amanda took our kids and Brenna on a picnic.  Today will be even busier with the final swim lesson in the morning, Noah's 3-year checkup at 2:00, and Lily's dance class at 3:00.  I will post an update on Noah tomorrow.
