Today was not extraordinary. There was absolutely nothing outstanding about today – and it was lovely. Some days all you want is a nice, quiet family day and today we had one.
We spent some time at my in-laws’ house, letting our daughter run around their nice fenced-in yard and letting our son enjoy a Titanic documentary on DVR. That gave my husband and I time to visit with other adults, always a nice thing!
We also managed to get out to the shoe store to replace our daughter’s shoes that fit over her braces (AFOs) – boy is she hard on shoes. She drags her toes sometimes, enough that it has an effect on the shoes, plus she just flat out runs a LOT.
Then we came home and had a nice afternoon and evening together as a family. I ran up the street for fried chicken and after dinner, my husband and I played a game with our son, much to his delight. He definitely is following in his father’s footsteps, with an interest in playing games.
All in all, a very nice, ordinary day.
