  • My girls must have been exhausted this morning because I had to wake them all up this morning.  They were pretty groggy when I tried to wake them but finally managed to get them to get up and put their church clothes on.
  • They had doughnuts for breakfast and then we loaded up and headed to church.  We were driving happily along when I realized that Whitman didn't have his shoes on so we turned around (we were just past the school) to run back and get his shoes.  The kids spent the afternoon at Grannymom's house so we knew he would need them there for sure-it is had been just church, we would have sent him shoeless.  I also used this as an opportunity to grab my sunglasses.
  • This time we went a bit further when Robby looked at his phone and saw that Grannymom had text asking us to bring the kids bathing suits.  So we turned back around again-Robby grabbed the towels and floatees while I ran in to find swim suits (Reagan said that I had sent her a mis-matched suit-I guess she is lucky that I managed to grab her a top and a bottom!)
  • We made it to church on time but not in enough time for Keaton and Whitman to see all the grands and this didn't sit well with Whitman.  He was kicking those feet when I passed him over the door to his teacher.  All I could think of during this exchange was the little song "I like to go to church, I like the happy songs we sing, I like to go to church"-I probably should teach that to Whitman because he sure doesn't like to go to church!
  • The boys had woken up at Dana's house and went to church with them while Lilli came with us.  Robby worked in the nursery while I taught Sunday school and then we headed to Grannymom's house for lunch.  After lunch, Robby and I ran home to start on our painting.
  • I had taped most everything yesterday so we were able to get started pretty soon after arriving home.  We averaged about an hour per bedroom and the hallway took about 45 minutes.  That was pretty good and we think that we did a decent job (for 2 non-painters).  I am sure there will be a few touch ups tomorrow morning but soon those bedrooms will be covered with beds!
  • When we wrapped up our painting, Robby went to get the kids while I headed up some cheese dip and beans for the Wilsons to come over and eat hamburgers.  The kids ate outside and we (the adults) ate inside.  The kids spent the evening playing the xbox, wii, watching a movie, playing sardines and dancing!  Needless to say it was an exciting night-and my people didn't get in bed until 11! 
  • Sleepy kids plus sleeping in my room (their room smells like paint) hopefully equals sleeping late tomorrow!
