Happy (belated) Father's Day!

We hope everyone had a great Father's Day! Brent had to work, so we fixed him french toast in the morning and then the kids and I took him lunch. Not exactly the most festive Father's Day, but at least we got to see him!

Saturday morning was Sophie's tumbling class. Brent was working, so I took her by myself. We got there too early (I thought the class was at 9, but it was at 9:30--oops!), so we played on the outdoor playground equipment for a while. She was MAD at me for making her leave the playground to come inside. She had calmed down by the time we got to the gym, but as the parents and kids were waiting outside the gym for class to start, Sophie tried to smack a little girl that got too close to her. A collective *gasp* filled the room (I'm not sure if that actually happened or if it was just my OWN gasp that seemed to fill the room), but when I looked up everyone was looking at me...I wanted to be invisible!! Sophie got a time out (and threw another tantrum), and it wasn't even class time yet. Class finally started...Sophie screamed during song time...then she didn't want to get out of the foam pit...dissolved when I wanted her to try the trampoline...more screaming during closing song time...and we left before she got a stamp on her hand. No way--no reward stamp for Miss Naughty!

We ran to Sam's afterward (trust me--I thought twice about this given Sophie's mood), and saw a friend of mine from church. She's one of those people that has such a sweet peacefulness about her--she completely turned my day around. :-)

The day ended with Jess and Ellie coming over for dinner (Jess made the BEST chicken salad). Sophie was on her best behavior--whew!!
