It’s been a rough time here, especially for Michael (18) with the passing of 2 of his friends. It has taken quite a bit to coax ham from his room at all.
So yesterday, I pried him out and we had a family day- all 5 of us.
1st: I had a meeting at the Healing Center, where I volunteer in a supervisory role. (Thursday while volunteering, I got 4 free tickets for Adventure Golf, and Thomas had his first perfect week at school. So, it was all great timing.)
2nd: Grabbed a small lunch& went to play at Fairfield Fun Center. The guy was awesome enough not charge us for the 5th child’s ticket, & we had a great 18 holes.
3rd: With saving so much money, we then went out for a very nice dinner at The Old Speghetti Factory. The younger boys were excited to sit in a trolley, and the restaurants meals include a 3 course menu. Kids are under $6, most adult meals are around $10-$11. And again, that’s 3 courses- or 4 if you count the limitless bread and butter too. 🙂 (the went through 2-3 loaves.)
Next, I Was introduced to the Redbox, where we bought a movie for $5, & rented 2 for less than $2 more. So, We finished up our long day with an evening of movies.
Thomas ate SALAD. 🙂
All and all, it was a great day….
