Are you ready for some football?

  • Robby's alarm buzzed and buzzed and buzzed again and again this morning.  We just laid there talking about how maybe we should have not sent Campbell to school this year-we could have slept in more!  Soon though Campbell was in bed with us and the first thing out of her mouth was "wonder what shape we will talk about today."  She was ready to go-even if we weren't ready.  (And they talked about rectangles.)
  • Robby and Campbell left and Graham and Whitman were the only ones awake to see them off.  My Whitman has had some pretty messy diapers today so I hope that he isn't getting anything and that no one else gets what he has.  He has felt fine though-maybe a bit more "in-to" everything.  Actually, he was such a toot this morning grabbing pop tarts out of the pantry after breakfast over and over again until I had to put him in his pack n play.  He was happy there so I didn't feel bad at all-and he loved it when Anderson put the blanket over the pack n play making a fort for Whitman.
  • The kids did well in school and only Anderson had work to finish after lunch-reading.  I told the kids that they couldn't play their kindles until all school work and chores were done.  It didn't take Graham too long to figure out that if he did Anderson's vacuuming then he could play his kindle sooner-I do love that boy.  
  • My Graham also did offer to help me with the laundry. I guess that he could see the overwhelmed look in my eyes.  We had at least 5 loads of clean clothes to fold and that is what I did while I worked with everyone during school.  Then the boys helped put up laundry in their room and even helped some with laundry from my closet.  I finally finished with all of the laundry by after lunch.
  • The afternoon was fairy calm-Grannymom had picked up Campbell and she spent the afternoon shopping and playing at Rock Creek.  And when Robby made it home with Campbell, you could tell that she was exhausted.
  • We had our supper and then quickly jumped in the car to head to football and cheer leading practice.  Anderson spent most of his practice being the center but did get to play other positions.  Campbell fooled around some during her practice but Reagan tried her hardest to keep Campbell in line (impossible task).  Graham always enjoys football practice and works really hard.  Reagan really seemed to enjoy cheer tonight-they learned a dance.  And Whitman and Keaton ran, rolled and flipped all during practice.  
  • Once at home, we quickly showered everyone and gave them a snack before putting them in bed-practice makes for a late night and tomorrow is another school day!
