A brief summary of my day, with a look at the stats.

I started off the day by taking SIX overexcited children to the local library bookfair, where we came home with FIFTY 'new to us' books. This gave me ONE hour of peace, as the SIX kids were immersed in their new books.

I then overcame my longrunning fear, and learned to drive our THIRTY ONE foot bus (not by choice, it needed to be moved, and Fitz was not here to do it.)

After this, I singlehandedly took TEN even more overexcited children swimming in a local pond, where I proceeded to count TEN bobbing heads about every FIVE seconds, to make sure they were all still there.

I finished up the day with a THREE hour wait in the ER, to get SEVEN stitches put into the foot of a very small SIX year old, and then taught her to use her very first pair of crutches.

All this leaves us with ONE very exhausted mom.

What a cute post. Sorry for the stitches though.

Oh no Denise!

I hope everyone is soon recovered from that outing!
