Today we partied, kinda. Well, I spent the majority of the day on the computer doing things I know I couldn't accomplish that I wanted to before my next day off, and in between the kids and I partied.
First off were silly portraits a la photobooth style. And, just like grown ups at weddings I shoot, all these kids wanted to do was try things on. And not take pictures. But, hey! They had fun!
The next event of the day was creating a fort out of Waverley's bottom bunk with blankets, grabbing a backpack of snacks (sshhh, don't tell Brian we ate in their room,) the classic comedic adventure film "The Great Race" with Tony Curtis and Natalie Wood and my laptop for a cozy movie time. They lasted a shocking 53 minutes before calling it quits. And we headed outside for a round of kickball before having dinner and watching a family movie.
And at some point during the day I went to the bathroom. Several times.
(I noticed the laundry list, so I wanted you to *know* I had a bit of relief today. Rest assured.)
She did it. And she likes it.
Her strength of character and confidence -fingers crossed she keeps it through life because, judging from how she is now, I see NO problems in the future.
The Day Off -the tradition continues.
