We went to Echo Summit a couple of times and we're headed out again this weekend with the Sua Clan....

It is 10:30pm and not a child has been stirring for 2hrs now...
11:25am: I picked the girls up from preschool and their teacher told me "I just wanted to let you know Louina hit her sister, grabbed another child by the neck and then was cutting her finger with the scissors today. Oh and Amelia was very emotional as well."
Oh man! That's what happens when I leave daddy in charge of putting them to sleep while I go to the store. I left last night at 9pm, got home at 11:55pm and began putting the groceries away. One at a time both girls came down and said that daddy told them to check on me. I freaked and said "You're still awake? Get to bed!". FYI my girls need around 10hrs sleep to function well long term....
So this morning I carried each one from the bed, fought their kicking from wanting to lie down, started to dress them and then the counting began. One-Two-...Louina's eyes opened, looked up and she rolled onto her feet.
My poor girls' energry was spent and they couldn't deal with the emotional issues they were confronted with. Louina said she got mad at her friend because she didn't listen when Louina kept telling her to look at something...so she said she grabbed her neck to bring her over to it! As for the finger cutting-Louina said she was cutting and thought she was cutting paper....not sure what to think about that because that is randomness at it's best.
So please let this work
I want to put them down to sleep at or before 8:30pm so that I can be in this same place at 10:30pm; peaceful knowing that sleep deprivation has been ruled out in the cases of Hafoka children acting out in school. We'll see, lol.
No matter...I am in heaven, just finished a $1 packet of mini kitkats from walmart and a whole cup of hot milk with chocolate peanut butter cake cookies. My chocolate craving satiated, check! Next, apologize to mah hubby for the mood swings, again. Can you tell what time it is? lol.

My parents, siblings and spouses planned a camping trip to Beals Point, Granite Bay for the kiddies. We've been spoilt in New Zealand because it's so green. When you say camp at the river, lake or beach you can walk out of your tent and that's exactly what you'd see. Na'a was told by a customer at work that Beal's point is really nice and my impression was that the lake was just a walk across the grass. When we arrived last Friday it was brown, more brown, dried green and we had to drive to the lake, lol. I just took a breath and let it go until we pulled up at the lake. Water levels are so low that it was about a half mile walk to get to the waters edge, hmf! Goes to show that it is about the company because camping was so much fun that we want to go again before the summer ends with everyone else; Cockers, Kois, Browns, Suas. Pretty much those that lent us their camping equipment and more!
