The plan today may as well have not been a plan. Oh well.
When you’re going to drive a good half hour to go to a garage sale you saw listed on your message board, it’s a good idea to double check the dates.
Also, it’s a good idea to remember where you’re going in the first place and not drive another half hour out of your way simply because you weren’t paying attention.
We had planned to go to the library for a home school open house. Apparently, an open house from 10-12 is really more of a suggestion, because everyone was shutting down and cleaning up when we arrived at 11:30. They were apologetic about it, but I still didn’t get to meet other home school moms in the area, which is what I thought I would be doing.
I did get to meet one, which is better than nothing, right?
Since the children were dealing well with all the disappointment, we went to visit the museum briefly, so that turned out all right for them.
And then I saw a street full of garage sales on the way home and did snag some clothes for the boy.
And even though he protested mightily his nap, he’s finally quiet and asleep. The girls are content upstairs in their quiet times. I am going to read for fun.
When it rains on your parade, you may as well dance in it right?

I love those days best that are an adventure without a plan. You get more surprises that way. Sounds like you had some good luck even if it wasn't quite like you intended.
Oh man… What a day! Did you read Kristen's post at we are that family? She talked about days like this… looks like you two could commiserate.
Good for you for dancing!
IS VERY GOOD..............................
