Today could almost be perfect

Today, for the first time in a long time, I played with my kids. I'm not a big get-on-the-floor and play type player. But, today some stressful issues in my life got worked out and it's made me feel a bit happier and I found myself not only playing horsey on the couch with my girls (yes, even my 9 year old got a ride), but I tickled them, wrestled and laughed. Then when my son got out of the tub, I watched some old cartoons on the computer with him. He really likes Caspar and Popeye!
Earlier today, we took advantage of the unseasonably warm weather and took a walk around the neighborhood. It was our first walk as a family where all 3 kids rode their bikes! That's a yay and a not yay, because it means Sophia can ride with no training wheels, but it also means she's growing up and stuff! :( But it was a great walk and we enjoyed talking with a few of the neighbors, which made us sad because we had our open house today (and tomorrow as well). But not sad enough to take the house off the market!
Also, my son had his first flag football game today. His team won, and he had got one flag off a kid and stopped a play. He was such a good sport, cheering when they scored and yelling "NOOOO!" when the other team scored, even though he didn't know what he was doing!

We then went out to
lunch with my mom, then off to my daughter's soccer game. They've had a good two years of being undefeated, but this session moved up a level to be more challenged. They've every game but one this session, until today! They won 8-6. She's facing some challenges there right now, so the ride home was a bit stressful. But as we pulled up at our house, the realtor was gone, but some people showed up to see the house! So we went and got some ice cream, and that lightened the mood back up!

Anyway, today seemed to be nearly perfect. Here's a funny thing too-I always think of funny things to say on our blog--you know, hilarious posts, informative links, election results showing Washington's caucauses--but then I sit down to write and it ends up being a daily journal! Oh well--as I get back into the swing of writing on a regular basis, I'm sure my natural humor and wit will come through! Or maybe Teddy could actually (read) write a post and then it would be funny!
