Silly Face!
(click here for today's pictures)
  • Last night as we were about asleep, my weather radio went off.  I am not sure if the volume can be adjusted on that blasted thing, but it was deafening.  My first thought was that it was the house alarm, but then I began thinking that it was a bit odd for a tornado on that clear night.  Either way, I was ready to bolt somewhere and then the scary weather radio voice man started talking about an abducted child.  Robby grabs that radio and probably would have thrown it out of the window (with my blessing) if we had an open window.  Now, I had to go back to sleep not only scared from the radio but upset about the child.
  • We finally went back to sleep but by that time, I had decided that it was too late to even think about getting up in the morning for my treadmill time (thankfully I was able to get a walk in tonight with the Wilsons)  
  • Campbell was the first one up this morning and then Graham.  Graham was ready to start to work on his school work so I helped him out some with his Bible study and then we had to wake everyone else up.  Whitman saw Robby still in bed this morning and he pounced on him.  There is a water leak at Robby's work so they couldn't work there today (or tomorrow) and had to work from home (yeah!)
  • Keaton spent the night at Nonna and Pops' house and had a big time-lots of eating, perusing Toys R Us and lunch at Chick Fil A.  Since she was gone, the school day should have been a little bit quieter but it was not.  I have to assume that was because Whitman was missing his buddy and was a bit lost.  
  • We had our lunch and then Whitman and Robby ran to Grannymom's house for a bit while we did our together work.  It has been a very long time since we have done together work with just the big kids and it was wonderful! 
  • After this, the afternoon was spent pretty much-doing nothing until Keaton came home and when she arrived, she had a plate full of cookies for us to enjoy.  She was so proud of her cookies and we ate them up.  
  • We had lots of leftovers for supper and then the kids and I went upstairs to play Wipeout on the Xbox.  There was a lot of yelling and it was great.  I played the game for just a few minutes and quickly became winded!
  • Around 7, we went to walk with the Wilsons.  The kids played outside until their feet were filthy.  Whitman wanted to walk with us so we eventually had to put him in the stroller and push him up and down their road.  When we finally made it home, it was shower time for the kids and then bedtime for all.
  • At bedtime, Robby asked the kids what something they would want to do with us when they were adults and we were older.  My thoughtful Anderson that we could travel with him in his RV and my Campbell said that she would push us in our wheelchairs!
