the kids will play. Joe was gone last night and today. Today the boys had a birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese. The girls and I were going to go to Sara's soccer game, but the weather actually got gross enough that they canceled. Sara was only slightly bummed because once it was canceled we decided to do what girls do when they have free time--shop. The girls spent some of their birthday money and I hear that the boys had a great time being initiated into the world of pizza birthday parties. They did differ on their opinions of Chuck E. Nathan keeps saying "I was scared and cried." John told me at supper that when he grows up he wants to be Chuck E. Cheese--he thinks it would be totally cool to dress up in the outfit. So all had a great time and everyone was back in time for my favorite part of the day (especially on a gross one like this!)--nap time.
