|She lined her crayons up in rainbow ROYGBIV order, haha!|
And on the kid's day off from school, I acquiesced and took them to one of those indoor trampoline parks, including a few games of air hockey.
We followed it up with a visit to the fruit market where we got our pumpkins, and a trip to 7-11 for slurpees - best day ever! (Kids are pretty easy to please.)
To cap off an already lovely week, the CUBS ARE GOING TO THE WORLD SERIES OMG! And, yes, we took pictures of our television.
It's rather difficult to watch from afar, thinking of how I used to live just blocks away from Wrigley and that I can't partake in the fun. But I am so grateful to be able to witness this momentous hometown achievement. And though I'm not a religious person, I know my dad (who instilled our love of the team no matter what) is probably lookin' down on his beloved Cubbies, too.
If you could say a prayer, chant or positive thought for them this week, our family would appreciate it! Meanwhile we'll be eating...
