  • I woke up 6 this morning and looked at the clock and sighed, "we made it."  All night long without anyone throwing up!  That helped me snooze wonderfully well for the next hour.  When Robby climbed out of bed and said that he was going to go and wake Keaton up, I had no idea why or what he was talking about.  Eventually I did realize that she does indeed still have school-only one more day though after today.
  • Robby and Keaton left this morning and soon everyone was awake and we ate breakfast before they started on their school work.  The kids finished their school pretty quickly and we worked on our science before everyone headed outside.  
  • The kiddos played outside for just a bit before I served up lunch.  Then back outside they went for most of the day.  This is the second day in a row that the kids have been outside for most of the day and my kitchen floor feels like the beach.  There is more dirt on the floor of my house than in the dirt pile outside.  Yes, I know that I could sweep it and I probably should but there is always tomorrow.
  • The neighbor kids came over and most of the day was spent playing in "Whitman's desert"-the dirt pile.  This made Whitman incredibly happy but when Reagan was completely buried, it did not make me happy at all.  Dirt, dirt everywhere.
  • Around 5, I headed out with Whitman to the grocery store.  He was a pretty good shopper as long as I would let him get a few things off of the shelf.  He did become pretty excited about ice cream that I was buying.  I tried my best to explain that this was not his ice cream-it was Mommy and Daddy's ice cream and when he was a daddy he could stay up late and eat ice cream too.  
  • It was again nearly 8 when we had our spaghetti for supper (we are like big city folk).  It is kind of nice because just as soon as the kids have showers, we eat and then it is bedtime!...and then it is ice cream time!
