Yesterday I took a personal day off, and it was so worth it. Eli has Wednesdays off from preschool/therapy, so I decided since it was sort-of his “birthday week,” I would take off and spend the day with him. He turns 4 years old on Sunday!
Yesterday, we woke up and just relaxed and watched a little TV. Then we took a trip to Target. Eli enjoys riding in the buggy. He stretches out in the bottom of it. 😉 We went back home, ate lunch, and read lots of books. Eli loves to read books, and I love reading to him. He is a big fan of the Eric Carle books, which is why we are doing that for his birthday theme (with a focus on The Very Hungry Caterpillar. 😉
We got dressed and went downtown for Eli to get a hair-cut. Downtown Athens is so pretty right now with all of the trees changing, leaves falling, and they have the prettiest fall decorations on each corner of the square. We walked around the sqaure some and then went on to get a hair-cut. Eli did great and just talked to the ladies in the salon so much. “Mrs. Whitney” does a great job with him.
Afterwards we went to get ice cream at the Drug Store. We walked since it’s right across the street and the weather was so nice. 🙂 Eli knew we were going there after his haircut, and he was excited! He ate lots of vanilla ice cream all by himself!
Thankful for such a wonderful day with my sweet, sweet Eli!
