Fireworks : I planned another Disney girls night last night, with a bunch of church friends. We had 9 people total, and it was a great time. I got completely drenched on splash mountain again, though. But my favorite part was when we went on Big Thunder Mountain. We lucked out and were on the ride during the fireworks. It was amazing. A great Disney memory for sure.

Brushing Teeth: Ok, I've finally got almost in the habit of brushing Arthur's teeth before bed. Nevermind that he's three, and also that he then has two applesauce pouches before falling asleep.

Butterfly Migration: The Painted Lady butterfly migration is coming through our area this year, maybe due to the tons of rain we’ve gotten, making more wildflower. The first time we watched them Sienna said “maybe they’re hibernating!”

Change the Time Already: Daylight Savings is slowly killing us. John and I have been going to bed at 9. Arthur will barely sleep until 6. And I still have to wake the other kids for school every day. Didn’t we vote for the legislature to make it permanent? Hurry up.

Fun and Fury at Del Taco: Maggie and a handful of her friends wrote a skit and performed it at the school talent show. I guess it was based on YouTube jokes and memes, so I completely didn’t understand it, but Maggie ran around on stage yelling free food, so I still laughed. I’m impressed with their initiative, creativity and bravery in doing it.

Monday Morning: This morning after dropping Sienna off at kindergarten, Arthur and I went to Fisherman’s Cove to look for sea glass and play in the caves. When we got back, I did 30 minutes of Pilates - carefully curated to avoid hurting the cyst on my tailbone. Then I had just enough time to vacuum and shower before picking Sienna up.

Wendy and Skunk: Maggie and Dalton's latest musical theater group did Peter Pan. Maggie was cast as Wendy and Dalton was Skunk, one of the Lost Boys. Maggie did an amazing job learning all her lines, all her choreography, practicing her songs, and being a leader to the younger kids in the group. I was very impressed and proud of her. Dalton had some funny lines, and he had a good time hanging out with a group of the other cast members.

We were going to take a break, but one of my friends talked me into letting Maggie do the next play - Frozen - so her daughter could do it with her. I think they'll have fun.
