  • I hit snooze a few too many times this morning and woke up just a few minutes before the kids.  I had almost finished my Bible study when I heard someone knocking-it was Whitman knocking to get out of his room.  I opened the door and there he stood saying, "I can't open door."  He knows he can't open the door but he has never said anything about the door knob not even being on the door.
  • Breakfast included a word search for Reagan and Anderson.  They are taking part in Lilli's science fair project-seeing if they would do better on their puzzle after their tummys were full.  I do believe that all she will be able to see from their puzzles is that we are not that great on word searches here! 
  • School started off well and then it all just fell apart.  My Anderson is so easily distracted but he was the least of my worries. Graham and Campbell were in rare form today.  Basically it was a pretty ugly morning but I stayed Duggarish but that didn't really help.  Thankfully we were able to finish school (everyone except Campbell) by lunch time and things did begin to calm down...some.
  • After lunch was busier than before lunch.  We did our chores which did take quite a while it seemed.  Then I helped Anderson start to build a rocket (crafting is just not my thing) and then I moved into finishing the cinnamon rolls with Campbell.  We made many, many pans of cinnamon rolls and Campbell was delighted with them-they were pretty good (good enough that we passed out a panful tonight after supper). 
  • I always hear of interval training and that is just what I did this afternoon on the treadmill-run for 10 minutes, go downstairs to change pans of cinnamon rolls in the oven and then back upstairs to run.  This probably isn't the type of interval training that they talk about but I did learn one thing-I need a double oven!
  • I had supper ready when Robby made it home (well, almost) and then more crafting after supper-Reagan's valentine box.  It is really, really cute but goodness I am tired!  Whitman has just been all over everywhere today and though he has not broken anything today he did spill most of my cereal but the sweet little thing was trying his best to put it all back in the container!
