Gramma and the boys and I went to International Plaza this morning. She bought the boys a bunch of clothes from Gymboree (including cute back to school outfits) and then the boys had a blast playing in the new and improved play area. Then we went to the Discovery Store which must be going out of business because everything was on clearance with all sales final. Finally, Build-a-Bear and the Crocs kiosk and lunch at the food court from Chick-Fil-A. The boys were very good up until after lunch when Mack had a meltdown, precipitated by being told he couldn’t put his new Crocs charms in the holes in the end because they would just fall out. He recovered after being given coins to throw in the fountain and we had a peaceful ride home.

Now Gramma is reading with Mack and helping him go down for a nap and Cal is reading and then going to do some schoolwork with Gramma. Maybe I can start a new scrapbook page?

ETA: I got a page done while Mack napped and Gramma did schoolwork with Cal! Here it is:
