All Grins!
(click here for today's pictures)
  •  I hit snooze a bit too many times on my phone this morning so we had to scurry a bit.  The kids were happy about rushing around since it was Bible study morning.  But in the end, we even had time for the trash cans to be emptied while I ran around cleaning the potties.  We didn't really have to hurry until breakfast time but that was fine since what was left in their bowls was taken to the car.
  • Our first stop was to pick up Graham.  He had a big time spending the night with Grannymom and Grandpa last night.  He told us all about his evening and morning on the way to Bible study.  He is a bit like Campbell when he rejoins the group (grumpy!) but today he was in a great mood.  I was glad of that but had done everything I could think of to smooth his transition...as in I made sure that his seat in the car was empty!
  • The minute we walked into Bible study, Whitman started reaching for the door and saying "that way."  He was pretty adamant that he not go to class but he didn't fuss to badly when I dropped him off.  Whitman has been getting more and more upset when I drop him off at any class the last few weeks...he has also been getting more and more upset at nap times too!
  • After Bible study, we all headed to the park.  We just have 2 more weeks after today of Bible study this year so the kids are dreading not going to Bible study and not having our weekly park time.  I knew we were going to the park so I made sure Anderson did all of his medicine this morning and then Jodee remembered Anderson's attack last time we were at that park, so she had wiped down the table for my Anderson.
  • The kids played and played until it was time to head home.  We missed seeing Beebee this afternoon-she has some type of infection that is possibly contagious.  So we headed home and did some of our school work-well, first the kids played outside in the sprinkling rain while I unloaded the car and tried to put things away.  Then we started that school work-today was our last official day of science.  
  • The afternoon went pretty quickly by.  Robby came home with supper and we demolished a whole pound of bbq meat.  We started off giving the kids a half of a sandwich at a time but they were asking for more before I could even make my own sandwich.  
  • Then it was time to head to church.  Even when my Graham was in Ms. Stacy's class, he has always had a hard time memorizing things (though he can remember every single thing that I has ever happened in his life).  So he has really struggled with his April's verse (Romans 12:1-2-Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.)  I seriously, would struggle with that verse too but he finally said it tonight and I think that he was pretty pleased with himself!
  • Once at home, we celebrated that with cookies and some milk before bedtime.  Campbell snuck in a shower while I put on Whitman's pajamas.  He heard the water and started asking "shower? shower?" and before that when we walked into the door from church tonight he started asking "ice cream?"  It was pretty hard to explain to a 2 year old that ice cream night is after church on Sunday nights and not Wednesday nights!
