Our Savior's love, shines like the sun with perfect light. As from above, it breaks through clouds of strife.

5 Wednesday night yoga details

Greg goes straight to church after work on Wednesday nights, so it is just us girls.  We are lucky to have a gym that allows our fun Wednesday night tradition.  After an early dinner, we head out the door.

1st step:  Corral the girls into the car (this usually involves several patient requests of "shoe time" and "head out the door" and "please let me close the door" and "leave the rocks on the ground" etc., etc., followed by one not-so-patient "get in your seats!" and is topped off by wrestling SJ into the buckles on her car seat).

don't let the smile fool you... she hates being strapped into her seat

2.  C "closes her eyes" on the ride there, and after "waking her up when we get there" I get to take an invigorating Yoga class while the girls have a great time at "the little gym."

3.  We stop at the fish tank (in the gym lobby) on the way out to play peek-a-boo with the fishes

4.  Then we crank up the Kindermusik on the stereo for the drive home

5.  Bedtime routine:  a shower in "mommy's shower" for the girls, brush teeth, "mouthfloss" (what C calls mouthwash and floss), read scriptures, pray, sing to SJ (Goodnight, moonlight ladies- James Taylor), sing to C (True Love- Cole Porter), snuggle time with C (talk about what good things happened that day). 

Not too shabby for a night missing Daddy
