Busy Day

This is the Saturday that never ends!! The kids got home from work after midnight last night, and the twins were wide awake and ready to play at 4:30 a.m. today. Jessica got them to stay in bed until after 6 a.m.

Rick took my SUV to get a new tire and they found some problems that ended up costing a small fortune (like well over $1,000). I just got a new alternator last week!!!

Jessica and I went to get groceries. About the time we got back, our neighbor needed help repairing his roof. Tyler went down first and then Jessica and Adam joined them.

Rick decided to take the twins out in the bike cart. Unfortunately it broke and will have to be replaced. They rode to K Mart to look at carts, but they only had singles. Jasmine rode her new bike. It needs the seat raised. She is almost 50" tall now.

Then Tyler and Jessica had to go to work and get off at 11pm--hopefully. They ended up staying late to close concessions last night.

And soccer opened today, but it was just to find out teams and coaches.

The washer needs a new switch, so Rick took all the laundry to the laundromat. We had been using a clothes pin jammed into the switch thingy, but it's getting harder and harder to get it to run so we really need the new switch. But of course that has to wait until Monday.

The twins fill up the cart!

Jasmine is off on her new bike.

Everyone works together on the roof.

The twins are on a U-5 team. They did kick the ball back and forth with the coach to show what they could do. Rick ended up being appointed assistant coach. One of us will have to be there for every practice and game with the twins anyway.

Is it bedtime yet??????
