(click here for today's pictures)

  • Whitman was the first one up this morning and he did lay quietly in our bed for a while before he went upstairs to look for his brothers.  Anderson said that when Whitman came upstairs, Anderson asked him "who is it?" and Whitman answered back "It's me, budder."
  • We had our breakfast this morning while I read a few books.
  • Since Reagan wasn't here today, I let the kids skip their school work and you would have thought that I had given them a year off of school.  Reagan had spent the night at Camryn's house and then spent the day dodging rain storms at Magic Springs.  They did end up closing the park early so Reagan was back with us before supper time.  
  • The highlight of this morning was Ms. Jennifer stopping by to deliver Keaton's diploma from when she missed the last day of school.  Having a teacher stop by her house was a big deal to Keaton.  Jennifer had her diploma, lots of pictures and an end of the year gift-a blow up beach ball (which is now hidden in my closet!)
  • We had our lunch and then we pretty much did nothing for the rest of the afternoon.  The kids did manage to go outside right before it poured here.  I was out in the garage but did manage to let them get wet enough that they were soaking when they came in.  
  • Whitman, Keaton, Campbell and I read for a long, long time this afternoon-long enough that when we were finished I needed a nap.  Soon after Reagan arrived so did Robby.  He brought us pizza for supper and after a bit, Robby and Graham headed off to Graham's Sunday school party. 
  • The rest of us had our supper and then the kids went on a walk with the neighbors.  I had told them to come in at 7 and my Anderson remembered to ask the time and then I was walking out to get them as they hurriedly bicycled home.  They showered and then we watched a baking show while we waited on Robby and Graham to return home.
