Sitting down with the kids to watch the third Harry Potter movie on TV tonight. It's almost started but first we got to watch a baby pretend to talk on it's iPhone foot ... its seems like a long time since our 6:40am wakeup for the Little Girl's swimming. There were second hand textbooks bought, dinner tonite volunteers meeting attended, a departure to Singapore (that would be Hubby) and KK presents bought. As team manager I almost had to coach the Big Girl's basketball match but managed to rope in another mum who had a clue and they won 29-19.
After all that we came home and did a simultaneous jump into the pool ... well The Boy, Big Girl and I did ... the Little Girl preferred her own space. Ten minutes later I was cool enough but the kids swam for over an hour while I pottered in the kitchen and read the paper, a lovely end to a busy day.
If you have a quiet moment I have a few links to linger over ...
1. Cute PL printables - These are the Days
2. Good advice for the busy season.
2. With Bach's Resolve - "He sets beauty before our imagination, gives us stories or poems, pictures or songs or even new ways to love and live, and asks us to bear them into the world. "
3. Gold that is Clear as Glass. - "Rationalism has its place in our society, but when it denies beauty, we instinctively rebel."
