10 in 10, 11 in 10, or 11 in 11?

It's been forever since I've done a 10 in 10 or the like, so when Lauren suggested it I thought it would be fun to give it a go. I forgot how crazy things were yesterday. _MG_9482.jpgOften times the children are awake and eating breakfast before I even make it downstairs. Rebecca was braiding the babies' hair when I came down. (She is wearing my jeans and she looks way cuter in them than I do. We also wear the same size shoes now. Sigh!)
_MG_9485.jpgSince we had many activities for the day school was started a lot earlier than usual.
_MG_9486.jpgOnce we school was wrapped up we needed to get lunch made because we weren't going to be home. Rachel volunteered to make peanut butter and jelly for everyone. This is when I'm super thankful for a friend like Kellee because of all the bread she brings us. We go through an entire loaf whenever we make sandwiches.

IMG_4061After shopping around a few stores at the Orchard Town Center the children were a little restless. They needed to run around a bit.
_MG_9511.jpgWe finally made it back home to finish up some school we didn't finish in the morning. Rachel and I played a few math games.
_MG_9515.jpgIssues, Etc. is on at the perfect time in the afternoon. They were discussing demons yesterday.

Your day looks great too! I am so glad I can bring bread:) And your clean dishes look lovely too.

So cool how your girls pitch in and help with hair-braiding, breakfast-getting and lunch-making. Looks like a fun day!

Heather said...

Your sweet girls :)

I'm going to have to listen to the demons discussion on Issues. I used to read a lot about that topic when I was younger. {Shudder}

Looks like a good day! You definitely got more done than I did.

Is Issues paying you for product placement? They should!

Jan, every time I look at your blog, I always think "How does she do it all?" Please write a book or clue me in to your magical ways.
Your day looked great!
