Wednesday with Dad

This morning we had the special "dad breakfast". Lots of eggs with lots of stuff in them, some OJ, and biscuts with jam.

Then the kids did their schoolwork while I worked on my project for the day. They think I don't check their work apparently because I discovered that J thinks every multiplication problem equals 500 and K can figure large sums in her head! So I had to make them do those worksheets again.

Then we grabbed a super quick bite to eat and rushed out the door to go to Downtown Disney. Well, the kids went there anyway. Dad and Mom went on a "date" to the movies! This doesn't happen all that often. We saw Jumper - a sci-fi film. It was okay.

We came home, chilled out and had a smorgasborg (sp?) of frozen chinese food for dinner. The kids ate whatever they felt like having and finished it off with some yogurt.

The best part of the day, well, night really, is the Lunar Eclipse! Since 8:43pm ET we've been watching the eclipse of the moon! This is a first for all of us. Dad had to go to bed, so he didn't see any of it. J just popped his head out every once in a while. And I popped out every 15 minutes or so to see what was happening. K spent almost the whole time with her eyes on the sky. Right now the moon is covered and will begin to start peeping back out again soon.

I'm hoping to be able to download some pics of the eclipse to save here and for the scrapbook. My camera just wasn't up to the challenge. (I need a super-lens.)

So it's been a good day.
