Kids. We have great kids. Like, super great. I am thankful for the kids we have everyday…But no matter how awesome your kids are, there’s always those times when you just want to pull your hair out!

We had a great day today. Home school went great. Atticus and Bonus are doing amazingly well. Atticus is older and is pretty good at working on his own once he is given instruction. Bonus usually needs more help, but that’s expected for his age. I can tell his attention span is getting better and he is starting to enjoy his school work more and more each day. I love working with them side by side. When Bonus does something good, he always wants his brother to come over and check it out. It’s so cute!!

After school we went to the park. It was so hot today, but that never keeps them away! They could stay for hours if we’d let them. Once we left there, we went and chatted with my grandma and headed home.

At this point it has already been a long day. No naps. They did lay down for a bit, but never fell asleep. All in all….things were going good.

Then we decided to go to the book store.  Once we pulled up they were excited because they know the kids section has toys. Not just any toys….Thomas the Train.  While Jeremy looked for a book, I took the kids to the their section. They played with those trains for a long time. They were having a great time and playing well with each other.

Then it was time to leave.

Atticus did well. When Jeremy said we were leaving, he dropped his things and was ready to go. Bonus on the other hand….let’s just say he got loud. “I never want to leave!” He even said we had to stay forever. FOREVER! Jeremy picked him up screaming and kicking. We were both so embarrassed! I know he was tired. I know others have kids and they know what it’s like. But really!? Why must they act so crazy in public? Bonus is stubborn. He gets that from his dad. When he feels strongly about something he sticks to his guns. I’m sure this will come in handy when he’s older. 😉 But right now, I’d really just like to leave a store without everyone staring at us!!!

That’s not too much to ask is it?

But who couldn’t love these faces? They are just to darn cute to be mad forever.
