A day with Grandma and Papi

It is approaching two o’clock and I am sitting down, quiet for the first time in the day, listening to the dishwasher and the Grandfather clock.

We picked up the youngest two grandkids at 8:30 AM and brought them home. I had a doctor’s appointment at 10:00 so I went there, stopped for a few necessities at the grocery store, and came home.

By the time I came home, the two older grandkids had just arrived.

All the kids were home from school. Our youngest, who would have had pre-school, stayed with all of us, as it would have been hard for him to accept the others all being together without him.

We have done many a thing this morning. First, we were all outside, with the oldest grandchild organizing the games. Then inside, to do some projects Grandma had come up with from a visit to Joann Fabrics. That lasted a long time.

Lunch came and the infamous ‘soupy woopy’ from Uncle Mikey. Great chicken stock with some Italian noodles. We are out of the Hungarian favorites and need to get there for some more. While everyone was doing crafts, I was working on making the crêpes, having made the batter yesterday. It took a while and although I though I had made way too many, we ended up with one left (there is still a small amount of batter in the refrigerator). Luckily, MK and I managed to each have one (lemon juice and confectioner’s sugar).

I just finished cleaning up the kitchen and although the dishwasher was empty, we somehow managed to fill it, which is why the dishwasher is being used.

Just another day in the Koerner household.
