A New Day!
As predicted, I am sore but I really enjoyed last night. Amy awoke at 8am and I could not pull myself from bed. She played until 8:30 and I reluctantly ask Cathy if she would let me sleep in (which I did until 10:30–what a bum!).
When the fireworks started lastnight, Amy could have startled, screamed, cried and jumped into the nearest adult arms. Instead, she rose to her feet in one bound, squealed with joy, clapped her hands (which is always so cute looking), yelled “yeah!” and laughed. For most of the show she was enraptured. About 2/3s of the way through she lost some interest but was overjoyed with our outing. Tommy was on pretty good behavior. Sarah had a friend and was naturally perfect (with the exception of not owning up to dying Amy’s hair). And Noah is the angel always is. The boys had a real tough time not participating in the juggling show (they like to yell out the punch lines and otherwise heckle but its thrilling for them and I need to nurture that somehow).
