Today was just a normal day . . .
Cali played a Concerto with her teacher, Cyrena, at the Sonatina Festival.
We drove up to Orem to shop at Xpedex, my new favorite store. They have the coolest selection of envelopes -- if you're ever in the market! Ha! Ha! Aaron kept groaning and saying, "How much longer are we going to be in this store?!" He's such a trooper.
We went and ate lunch at Carraba's to celebrate Cali's performance at the recital. We had a gift card, so we went all out . . . an appetizer, sodas . . . Usually when the kids try to order sodas at a restaurant, I give them the evil eye and they quickly change their order to water. But not today. Ian gave his meal a perfect 10!
Next we headed to a fancy Stamp Store to pick up some items for a Scout Merit Badge. Fun, fun!! The owner of the shop was nice but VERY quiet. I guess that's to be expected when you hang out with stamps all day long.
WalMart was the next stop. The girls had a list. The boys had a list. The race began. The girls got sidetracked at the clothing section. The boys won!!
Cali got called back for the Winner's Recital -- Top 10! She got to play her concerto again!
Aaron baked pumpkin chocolate chip cookies for me so I could go listen to Cali play at the festival.
Ian sorted 100s of stamps by country and loaded them into a binder.
The evening ended with a little homemade pencil making. Don't ask!
All in all -- just a "normal" Saturday at the Heber house.
