  • We had to scurry a bit this morning but were still able to sent Whitman and Keaton off to school on time-or nearly on time. Robby took them and the rest of us started on our school work. 
  • Everyone worked pretty hard and were soon finished earlier than usual-well, Anderson wasn't exactly finished early. I don't know what all he did this morning but he didn't mind being the last one to finish. 
  • We did our work together early this morning and the kids went to town working on their Mammath Cave junior ranger books. We didn't have time to complete them there so we brought them home so we can sent them in after we finish. I am glad that they enjoyed doing them so much because I have already printed out a few Hawaii junior ranger books.
  • Robby brought home Keaton and Whitman. They had good days at school. Ms. Jennifer said that as she was reading a story about Noah's ark, he told her to "Stop!" and ran to his school box to pull out his picture of him at Noah's ark. Keaton had her pictures to show off too and I think that they were pretty happy to have a show and tell.
  • Reagan made lunch-buttered toast, sausage, and fried eggs. She did almost all of it by herself and I was just around for clean up duty. After the kids ate, we cleaned up a little bit and soon some of my people were outside-in the rain.
  • The girls and Graham splashed around in the dirt pile, which now has a hole filled with water in it. They asked to put on their bathing suits and I said "not a chance." They apparently didn't need them to get soaked though!
  • At 3, we hopped in the car to head to the library. I started the car and immediately heard some strange sounds. I could barely hear a man talking coming through my radio. I looked and the radio was off. Hmm, it didn't take long for me to realize that when I turned the car on, Robby's phone's blue tooth connected and the call that he was on was now a call that we were all on. I was quick to hush the kids and tried to pull out of the garage quickly so we would be out of the phone's range. Thankfully, Robby figured it out too and was quick to hang up and dial back in to his work call. I did laugh and laugh about this-thinking about a bunch of people scratching their heads during the meeting while thinking, "It sounded like I just heard a bunch of kids."
  • The children's library had May the Fourth party. They had cupcakes, pretzel stick light sabers, cookies and yoda soda. They also had an obstacle course, crafts, a movie playing and some games. My people couldn't have been happier and were especially thrilled when the Kamps showed up as well. After a good time eating and playing, we headed home.
  • Once we came home, the kids ended up outside for a bit. Soccer was cancelled because of the weather but it was nice enough for the kids to shoot hoops for a while. After everyone had showers, we passed out nachos. The boys went upstairs to watch a Star Wars movie and the girls watched a movie down stairs. I made some cookies for dessert and when the movies were over, it was bedtime!
