  • Anderson was the only one awake this morning and he had already opened his blinds and was playing his ipad when I came through. As I walked upstairs Reagan was walking down the hall but everyone else was sound asleep. Keaton had already laid out her clothes so she was quick to wake up when I mentioned her clothes. She did, however, want for me to carry her down the stairs. So I carried her down and then went back up to get Whitman and carry him down. I started my day thinking that I might should spend a bit more time on the treadmill!
  • We loaded Keaton and Whitman up and they headed to school. Meanwhile, back at home we were pretty busy. I did school work with everyone and Anderson had a bit to finish from yesterday. All of that along with a page full of chores kept everyone busy.
  • I did start on making cookies and Reagan offered to make them and I quickly agreed. There was brief panic though when I realized we were out of eggs. I suggested substituting applesauce and the kids acted like that was the grossest thing ever. Thankfully, I was able to find another substitute and everyone was pleased. 
  • We then left to pick up Keaton and Whitman. On the way home, I asked what was one fun thing that they did at school today. Keaton couldn't think of anything at all and Whitman shouted out, "I went potty." Well, at least he had a good day.
  • The Heltz's were there waiting on us this morning and soon everyone was outside playing. The weather was perfect and then kids enjoyed playing. They played until we finally decided that we should do our poems. Everyone recited their poems outside on the patio. All of the kids did so perfect. I am not really interested in poetry but there were so many neat poems that maybe we should do more with poems around here. 
  • Afterwards, we passed out Reagan's cookies. Then the kids played some more. Everyone stayed until mid afternoon and when they left, we picked up and headed out the door for Grannymom's house.
  • The kids played over there while I ran to a few stores before Bunko. Robby picked them up and they headed home to eat. Then everyone went back outside to play with the neighbors and fly their drones until bedtime!
