I left for New York Thursday and flew back Friday- quick trip, great meetings, easy flights. Friday night after going out to dinner with the kids, we opened a bottle of wine and cozied up in the basement to watch Narcos. It's so good. We are hooked.
Saturday morning, Davis went to jiu jitsu and then the kids and I went out to a nearby apple orchard where my friend Kelley (Elsa's mom) was having a party for her new insurance agency. Rachel Murphy works for her- not sure if I ever mentioned that. So we got to see her too. We're going to get together this week to catch up.
Saturday afternoon, we had a new potential tutor come over- she is great- just trying to figure out WHEN D can meet with her. She doesn't do weekends and of course, Davis is fully maxed out by the end of the school day, so it's hard to imagine he would be able to take anything in if they met in the evening. We'll figure it out, I'm sure.
Saturday night we went out to dinner with Nate and Sarah. Bennett and Sarah have birthdays within three days of each other, so we typically do dinner out together near that time. We had SO much fun. It was nice to get dressed up and go out and just talk and laugh.
Then today we went to church, then Holden had a play date with Elsa (they didn't get enough of each other at the orchard) then we had swimming lessons and then we just chilled out the rest of the day.
Next week Davis starts voice lessons. He has been begging us for months to sign him up- so we'll see if he enjoys it was much as he thinks he will. I'm feeling a bit over-committed but I do want them to be able to try all the things they would like to- and pick a few to focus on.
This week Bennett is in LA and Detroit and I am here all week. That will be nice- being home. Things should slow down a bit in November- I can't wait. I have two more trips to LA this month, and Bennett travels a couple days out of every week. It's a lot. I'm tired. But I'm definitely still having fun and I guess that is what keeps me going!
