The girls love some watermelon!
Highlights from today: (Click here for pictures)
  • This was the first crazy day of this crazy week.  So we started it off with a bang or actually a flash: pictures!  We had our breakfast, read our stories and then started getting ready for the day. 
  • Our doctor’s office had asked the kids to take pictures at a local photographers so they could hang the pictures in the office once it is redecorated.  So we were out the door almost on time-we were only late because as I was leaving, I snagged my pants and tore a big hole in the knee so I had to change.  Reagan reassured me that it was okay because Grannymom could stitch them up.  But unfortunately, the hole is large enough that it can not be stitched-oh, well, I’ll have to buy more pants just for 10 more weeks.
  • The kids did very well at the photographers.  Well, they did as well as could be expected.  Campbell was a wild card but when she smiled, she really put on a show.  Anderson was as stiff as he could be, Reagan was pretty shy but Graham was Mr. Cheese and Mr. Conversation.  That boy is something else.  She will put the pictures on the web in a few days
  • We made it home for lunch and the kids even had a few minutes to play before we started school.  Today was the first day of school for Reagan so Anderson and Graham also tagged along for the journey.  Reagan was pretty excited and things went very smoothly-probably because Campbell was napping most of the time.
  • After school, Reagan and Anderson watched a bit of a movie and I woke everyone else up.  Then it was time for Robby to come home and a hot dog supper.  We had dinner and then went swimming in the back yard and ate a watermelon to celebrate Reagan’s first day of kindergarten. 
  • Soon it was time to come in and another movie before bed.  The kids again must be tired because it is quiet upstairs-blissfully quiet.
