Amelia didn't go to her skating class this morning for obvious reasons, so she and I stayed home and cleaned the house.
We sorted clothing and did laundry and cleaned bathrooms and generally worked hard. Amelia was surprisingly helpful. I was pretty happy about getting Amelia down to only two bankers boxes worth of "too big" clothes, when I discovered a whole 'nother large box. Sigh... So we have four boxes of footwear and eight boxes of clothing in storage, which seems excessive but at least that's down significantly from last week when we had twice that.
After all that cleaning I desperately needed to get out of the house and Amelia seemed fine so after lunch I took the kids to the Glebe Community Association's 50th anniversary party. Cake! Balloons! Face Painting! Community art projects! Free T-Shirts! The kids thought it was great and it was a nice way to spend an afternoon.
