  • I probably hit snooze a bit too long this morning because I was struggling to get myself ready and make everyone's lunches. Again, I probably should have made those last night but I guess I was hoping that the lunch genie would just appear last night and make our lunches. It didn't happen.
  • The kids were mostly ready this morning and even had time to help around the house some before we left. I did make sure that I had time to toast my bagel before we walked out of the door. 
  • I helped in the children's area today for CBS. We have to once a year and I like to get mine over with. The class was small and cute-I will say that Robby probably doesn't want for me to work with those little bitties too often. I miss having a baby around here.
  • After Bible study, we headed to the park with our buddies. The kids played and played as the grown ups talked. They do have a fountain there and Whitman left completely soaking wet. I would have probably beat Graham if he had soaked himself like that but I guess I have softened some. I just ignored it until we made it home and made sure that he had dry undies on.
  • Once we did make it home, I did a few things around the house-read to Whitman, did his homework with him, unloaded the car, divided some meat, straightened the kitchen, cleaned the fridge and a few other things and the next thing that I knew, I was sound asleep on the couch,
  • Now, I am sure that the kids absolutely loved me taking a nap. I think that I was pretty agreeable to whatever would allow them to leave my alone-for example, I now remember Campbell asking me if they could make slime using flour. I said sure and when I did wake up, I had a whole other mess to clean in the kitchen. Actually, they did pick up most of it but flour is just hard to clean.
  • I made supper pretty quick and soon it was time to head to church. It was hat day for everyone but Reagan and Anderson. Graham wore a cowboy hat, Campbell made her own hat and Keaton and Whitman both wore baseball hats. My group was on the playground again tonight which was very nice since those nights are probably coming to an end.
  • After church, the kids changed into their pjs and I passed out cookies. Then everyone had time to play on their ipads a bit before bed.
