After Sandy got home from work she took Naomi, Liam and I through the cow pasture to the horses that are behind their house. We went to feed some carrots to the horses. Naomi did great till we got within arms length of the cows..."I wanna hold you" was all she said as she made her little scared face. I think I'd be scared too if something on four legs that I only came up to the knee on was standing right by me. Once we got to the horses she kind of did the same thing. But she helped Sandy feed the carrot to Boo who was behind a fence. Walking back was fun as it was only 6pm but VERY dark and the clouds kept the moon covered for most of our walk. Liam wanted to wait for the moon to come back out to light the way but we knew that wouldn't happen for a while so eventually we got him to walk again. We got the kids some dinner and into bed before enjoying a nice steak and potatoe dinner ourselves. Yummy! Naomi and Liam had their first boy/girl sleepover as they shared a room with mattresses on the ground. We knew that they'd be okay because they were both SOOO tired.
They did do okay, until this morning. I'm not sure what woke Naomi up but at 5:30am she was crying. Which obviously woke Liam up. So, I tried to get her to calm down and Kristin took Liam into bed with her and we tried to get them to go back to sleep. I was making some progress with Naomi and then Micah woke up. So, I left her to go get him and then she started crying even harder and came down into our room to find us. She didn't want to sleep in my bed but she didn't want to be alone in her room either. So, I fed Micah and finally convinced her to come back into my room...we laid there for a little while but I could tell she wasn't going to go back to sleep. So we got up and shortly after that Micah decided he didn't want to try and sleep either. Later in the morning Micah did take a nice long nap so that was good. We went over to Trinity for their little chapel service that Bob leads with the preschool kids. Naomi would not sit still so we just spent most of the time outside (Micah was back at the house sleeping this whole time). We decided that it would be best for us to head home after lunch so that the kids might sleep in the car and so Liam could get a good nap. So, we headed to lunch and in the 15 minute drive Naomi fell asleep very hard. After a nice lunch at Panera we got in the car and started our 2.5 hour drive home. Of course since Naomi got her little power nap she didn't nap at all on the way home and Micah only slept for a short time. Thanks Julie for keeping ME awake!!! It only took us two hours and twenty minutes! Austin traffic wasn't bad at all. The reason it took longer to get there is because I took a different route to avoid Austin during the morning. Austin traffic is HORRIBLE during rush hour so I just wanted to stay away! So, that's my story of Waco. Both kids were in bed before 7:15. We'll see how well they sleep tonight. Could be interesting!
