Oh fun!!!!

I'll never be able to do that here to get to the corner store he would have to cross a roundabout where the average speed seems to be 60km/h and people don't look for pedestrians...between 7-9am and 3-6:30pm I won't even cross. When I was like 38 weeks pregnant, I took Bama for a walk and we almost got hit....a hugely preggo woman and an 80lb dog...seriously.

I think a bubble bath is in order tonight...just because

Its run by Empire Theatres...not all of them have them though: https://www.empiretheatres.com/reelbabies/playdates/ON

Taking a mobile 10 month old I do NOT recommend...I had to stand and rock his stroller until he finally fell asleep and he only slept for an hour...otherwise he was crawling on me, trying to get other babies, their pacis, my food, my straw, pinch my face....oi! It was a super cute movie though!!!!!

And I had popcorn...yum! And then went for a run when DH got home from work lol.

We want to go see Monster's University too, but right now the priority is the house so we're going nowhere.

The kids did just fine last night going to the store, I was proud of them. There are no busy streets to cross at all, just two little side streets and they have sidewalks the whole way.

Here's the house update for the night:
All 3 kids rooms - painted and done!
Playroom - painted and done!
Dinning room - painted and done!
Living room - leaving as is, done!
Bathroom - toilet fixed, tub installed, drywall up and mudded, tub surround still to go in and painting to be done
Kitchen - painted, upper cupboards painted, lower cupboards first coat painted, backsplash still to be painted, new cupboards to be installed
Our bedroom - primed, painting still to be done
We're almost ready to move in!!

It is a club kind of like girl guides, but there is lots of projects you can do. Cooking, small animal, small engine, welding etc lots of skills for kids to learn. My kids are in the beef project where they feed/fatten steers for market. They also halter break them and show them. I will find a pic and post

Wow Caroline...we've been in our house for 2 years in September and have barely accomplished half of that!

Love those pics Chrystal! I don't think 4H is as big in Ontario as it is in other parts of Canada. I did girl guides for 12-ish years.

4H is big in this town! I think every kid, boy and girl, signs up for at least a few 4H clubs. I did my full 24 when I was young and loved them! Unlike Guides, you only sign up for the clubs you're interested in. There's the animal ones, but also things like photography, drama, wood working, and cooking clubs. The cooking ones are broken down into the main ingredient too, so if you don't like chicken you wouldn't choose to do the chicken cooking club, if you love milk then maybe that would be the one you'd take. I need to look up who the person in running it here now because I heard a rumour that it starts as young as 9 now and I have a 9 year old who would be interested in doing some clubs, I had to wait until I was 12 when I wanted to start.

I'm getting nothing done today at all on the house. I had one kid or another up since 3am so when DS laid down for a nap guess what I did? I'm so far behind now.

I've looked into 4H in our area, but it's so hard to find information on! It must not be as big here, I think the biggest branch is about 40 minutes away.

Worked today, DH works tonight. I just got the last kid to bed and now I'm cleaning up a bit before I grab a shower and relax, I still have a lot to get done before Sophia's birthday party on Sunday!

I hope your trip into work goes well!

At work today, it is so dreary and rainy outside today! I'm dreading the hour's drive home!
