- Friday -- opening Mass at dh's school; long, "playdate" with dear friends (where there is someone for everyone: BamBam and LegoManiac have boys to play Wii/Nintendo/trampoline, String Bean has a "little sister" to mother, and I have a dear homeschool mom with older and younger kids just like me); traffic issues on I95 (go figure) with the promise of a stop at Borders once we got passed ... dh made dinner and we watched a family movie!
- Saturday -- after the typical kvetching about chores, we all settled in for a day of open windows/doors, comraderie and prepping for the evening: the boys did a magic show at a fund-raiser for the local elementary school and then we all ate "fun foods" (that is, homemade junk food: nachos, cheese dip, chips and onion dip made with yogurt) and watched LSU win their season opener against UNC!
- Sunday -- another open-window day with brilliant blue skies, short rehearsal and lots of family time (watching the first season of Hogan's Heroes!)
- Monday -- dh home (!) and yet ANOTHER open-window kind of day with morning Mass, lots of knitting time and kids' playing time, and an evening watching Fitzwilly.
Hope your long, end-of-summer weekend was just a lovely!
