For any of you who are following along at home, we survived day one. And it went amazingly well, actually.
We read scriptures together over breakfast, the girls completed their morning To-Do list, we went for a walk, I got a shower, we went shopping, Jesse took a long nap, Julia had a friend over, Kennedy played outside most of the afternoon, I made a yummy dinner, Kennedy went to a birthday party, the girls did their chores and completed their evening To-Do list, and everyone was in bed at close to 8:30 (some a little before, some a little after).
I only had to yell at them once for playing in the hose (again!), once for playing in the car and painting the dashboard with fingernail polish (how do they come up with this stuff!?) and a couple times for sneaking Gummy Worms. Renie peed on the floor once, Jesse is cutting molars, and Devon continues to refuse all food but fruit, bologna, and ham. Julia rode her bike into the curb in an attempt to avoid a collision with Kennedy, resulting in some serious crying, a Not-Visible-To-The-Naked-Eye scrape, and the chain coming off her bike.
So all-in-all, not too bad. We'll chalk it up on the Good Day side.
Now, on to tomorrow.
