Farmer Dad takes a Day Off

It doesn't happen often, but every once in a while....he stays home from work.
Today was a great time to do it, because we have a lot to do to get ready for
Princess's party on Sunday. I still can not believe she is going to be 5 next week!
Today she helped me cook, and Farmer Dad paint the garage window after he
went food shopping for me.I'll post some pictures, they were so cute.
We did take a break to play with Polly Pockets (ugh!) and swing on the swings,
but most of the day was spent working. I just sent Farmer Dad over to pick up the tent we are borrowing
from our friends and to another store. My sister has promised to take me to the "Big Bad Warehouse"
tomorrow morning for a few things I need and then Farmer Dad will go to the Yankee Game with our friends
who have an extra ticket.He has never been to Yankee Stadium, so he should have fun.
I'll be here cooking and doing some last minute cleaning and such.
The weather is supposed to be lovely and Farmer Dad has agreed to pull the "Skee Ball" game up from the basement, so hopefully the kids will have fun.

Now that man is a keeper! When mine takes a day off, he certainly doesn't go food shopping for me!

It looks like lovely weather for Princess' party! Five, oh my! Can't wait for photos! Give her a birthday hug from her friends in PA

Well I thought I was the luckiest lady for having a DH that went grocery shopping when I had a million other things to do... I guess we're tied! Although - if yours comes back with the "list" items and more veggies than doughnuts and cookies then you win. I can't wait to see all the pictures from P's party. I bet she's beside herself with excitement :)

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
