To do: wear out children
Since we arrived the kids and I have not gotten much sleep. One night Aidan will sleep and the other Jaylee will sleep. This boils down to no sleep for mom. So, today I decided it was time to take charge. I had the kids out from 4 until 7. Now they are asleep...thank you Jesus.
These kids have been great. They are eating new foods, walking everywhere, getting used to a new town and playing with kids in the park that they cannot communicate with. However, in Aidan's situation you just walk right up to whatever you want and take it. Have a glare off with the poor child and nanny and continue on like nothing ever happened. So really I cannot complain, but I am tired. Hence, the two sleeping children. I think the walking and the melatonin that I split in their apple juice did the trick.
So tomorrow starts off our school hunt. Jaylee misses CU and her friends so badly that she now assigns herself homework. We have a total of 8 schools to start with and then from there we will decide where our apartment should be.
Besides wearing the children out I attempted the dry cleaners, bakery and meat shop. Yes there are technical terms for these, but I don't know them. As for the dry cleaning I have no idea what I got, when to pick it up or how much she will charge me. I did get that I needed to pay upon dropping off, but we both got the jest that I didn't have Euros on me. Or so I think. So I left two shirts with her and we will see what comes out. The bakery was great and I finally tried an eclair. It was supposed to be for Jaylee's dessert, but you see what happened to her. You snooze you lose the eclair. Lastly, the butcher next door is a good man. I start speaking and he says, "Habla espanol?". Viola complete conversation. Just not in French.
Ps. I love the comments and the emails. We miss you guys already.
