Good morning, it is Thursday.
Yesterday was a stay at home day for Hansen as he recovers from ear surgery. Preston and Lillie had school, soccer and piano as usual. Hansen was lucky enough to get a visit from Nana and Grandpa. They took him to Target to pick out a toy, and to help choose birthday presents for Alex. I decided to tag along, but I had John drop me off a block early so I could deal with a payment issue at the music store (The did not record a payment from Nov 08, and without telling me they have been accruing late fees-rude!) and to run to the bank. By the time I walked back to Target, Hansen was just finishing finding all his stuff. Nana and Grandpa have far more patience than I do! Then it was over to Dairy Queen for Lunch. We had a very nice lunch, Hansen even grabbed a MooLate for the ride home. His goal was to share it with his mom, but throughout the day...he just could not wait. He kept asking, "when is mom getting home?", I would say "three more hours.", then he would go slurp his Moolate. Needless to say Maren never got a taste of that treat! We just won't mention anything to Maren and she will never know the yummy treat that could have been hers if she could have made it home from work just a bit earlier.
Hansen and Lillie are choosing Christmas music to learn for their Piano recital in a few weeks. Looks like Lillie will play Jingle Bells and Jolly Old Saint Nicholas, and Hansen has yet to decide.
See you tomorrow.
