All of a sudden it was the last day. I made sure to get up in time to say good-bye to everybody and get those last pictures in.
Here's Dave with his lunch. He said that the guys he works with think they're really, really funny hence the enhancements to his lunch cooler. (It really is kind of funny).
The first ones to leave were, of course, the first ones up. Everybody went about their business in order to leave on time. Everything was organized and nobody was frenzied or frantic. I was so impressed.
Today David was getting a ride to school but I don't think that's typical. On a typical day, I believe everybody in this family leaves the house at a different time. (By the way, I think Patty has finally admitted that David is taller than her.)
Katie was next. How can they all be so pretty and handsome and cheerful and sweet so early in the morning?
Evan Zachary who was up with the first ones orbited around everybody's sphere cheerfully. Don't let this picture deceive. Each one ate a healthy breakfast but because we were here Zachary got to finish his off with Chocolate donuts. I wanted to include this because it was so cute that he was adamant that his donuts had to be chocolate and then he insisted on calling them brownies.
Here's Matthew cheerfully enjoying his healthy breakfast.
And then ready to head out the door - right on time.
Meanwhile Zachary, who has to look at each picture after it's taken, realized that sometimes he looked really big and sometimes little. I explained that it depended on how close he was to the camera so he experimented. Here he wanted his hand to look big.
And here he moved far away so he'd look small. He's SO smart!
All too soon it was time to leave. Patty's mom (Nana) arrived to take over and we headed out.
On the way home, we ran into this critter. I was glad that he was securely tied because I sure wouldn't want to run into him on the loose somewhere.
More about our busy week in the next post.
