At home with Will

Will stayed home from school today after having a meltdown this morning. He was so exhausted from the weekend that he was basically non-functioning. Will had a basketball tournament on Friday night and all day Saturday, and we had three kids spend the night Friday night. Then after basketball on Saturday Will and Jacob went to spend the night with some friends. I think Will might have been home for 20 minutes that afternoon. On Sunday after church another friend invited Will over. I almost said no, but they had not had much opportunity to hang out since we have been back. I asked Will what he thought, he said he thought he was okay to go. The good thing is that Will does know himself well enough most of the time to be able to make that kind of decision. He has often not gone to someone's house when he thought he was too tired or just didn't feel like playing. He knows that if he doesn't get enough sleep or have enough downtime he will be a basketcase the next day. Good morning, Will! He couldn't handle it. I should have said no.

Having a Turkish breakfast at 11:30am. You can tell just by looking at Will that he is still tired.

Tomatoes, cucumbers, boiled eggs, feta cheese, olives, and bread. Traditionally this is what Turks eat for breakfast. They might also have jelly, honey, garlic sausage, and some other bread items.

And then we can't forget the tea. I didn't make tea at first, but Will requested it. Here he is talking about his weekend.

What a good mom you are! We've had a few of those mornings before too, after big baseball mornings. Although, I must say, if I made that for my kids' breakfast, they would more than likely go on to school!! :) It looked yummy to me, but......No wonder you lost so much weight!!
