Just a little time in the dirt!
Highlights from today: (Click here for today's pictures) 
  • The first thing I heard this morning was Campbell calling for Reagan "Rearea, momma wake me up."  This means "Reagan, call Mom and have her get me out of bed."  Of course, Campbell called and called and called and Reagan never answered her....because Reagan had spent the night at Nonna and Pops' house.
  • Last night the boys had made a list of what to do today.  They made their list possibly at the same time I was making my list.  Anderson had written "eat donuts" before "get ready" so he was pretty adamant that he had to eat his breakfast first so that is what we all did around here.
  • Church and poor Graham really, really wants to go to big church.  I promised that in just a few months he will get to go all the time.  Anderson piped in with he wished that he could go to class.  We asked why and he replied that you have to stand up too much in big church.  And if you were 5 it might seem like you do have to stand up too much in big church but today, I heard Reagan and then Anderson singing a song that we had sang today in church.
  • Today in church, Anderson leaned over to me and said "do you remember when we had to take off our shoes in church?"
  • We had lunch at Grannymom's house and even had a dessert that Oklahoma is famous for-pecan pie.  Then the kids went outside to play a game of kickball.  We played that the other day over there and I think it would be fun to play a big family game of kickball sometime-like after Thanksgiving.  Wouldn't that be a fun tradition?
  • Back at home, the kids watched a movie, the little girls rested and then everyone went outside while Robby was mowing.  I saw both of the boys potty outside and then I noticed Campbell-standing up against a tree, pants and diaper pulled down, holding herself and turning around grinning at me.  Of course I tried to grab my camera but she had moved before I snapped a picture.
  • The kids stayed outside until almost 6 and then I brought everyone in because it was cold!!  Reagan and Campbell had a bath together, Anderson also had a bath in which Campbell who was wearing her clean pajamas joined him and Graham had a shower.  Then they had leftover lasagna and we read a book about caves.  
  • And before I knew it, the kids had flashlights and were spelunking in the dark bedrooms.  Finally, we put everyone down for bed and I really think they all rest a bit better when they are all in the same room.
