Blue Apron

We should get a delivery of meal kits on Saturday. They’ll leave it at the front door. It’s packed well with ice. So it’s okay if you’re not there when they deliver it. Please just unpack it and put it in the fridge. The ice packs can be melted in the sink and then cut them open and pour down the garbage disposal once they thaw.

Carter’s Soccer Game

Saturday morning at 9 am. Takes about 25 minutes to get to the fields.
Carter’s soccer bag is hanging up on his closet door. Black drawstring bag. Should have his soccer ball, cleats, and shin guards. His soccer socks are long yellow ones in the top right drawer. Not sure if they will be wearing black or yellow jersey. Always good to bring both

I bought some decorations from Amazon that Carter picked out. They should all arrive on Saturday. Pretty sure those will be the only deliveries we get that will be addressed to me. Open any boxes addressed to me.
One of the things in those deliveries will be orange and black construction paper if you wanted to make decorations with the kids.

Carter’s birthday gifts

Carter has a stash of birthday gifts he hasn’t really dove into yet. There’s some pretty cool science stuff that he gets into. Boxes are by Sommer and I’s bedroom door


Nora loves helping with cooking. Carter sometimes likes to help. Always likes to help eat.
Blueberry Muffins
Pumpkin muffins


We feed Gus 1 1/2 cups of food in the morning and evening. His food is in the lower left pantry. Next to the back door
We’ll also give him a couple treats throughout the day. They are in the ceramic container in the left corner of the kitchen countertop
We usually give him 1 or 2 walks each day. Usually one around lunch and one after dinner.
He’s been having some issues with his butt. Sort of leaks a bit in the morning. I try to keep him off the beds. He likes to sneak into Nora’s room or Sommer and I’s. I’d leave the doors closed as much as possible. You can also use the mat from his crate. But it’s kind of a losing battle. He’s so used to sleeping on the beds. So
