  • The girls were the first ones we saw this morning as they put their pajamas into our room. They seem to move slow on most mornings except for Sundays and Wednesdays. Now Whitman was not too happy about having to put on church clothes and then when he found out that it was "Big Church Day." So as I was getting him dressed, I told him all about people in China being scared to go to church and worship God. This conversation didn't change his dislike any for having to go to church.
  • We headed to church without Reagan, who was already there. She had spent all weekend at the middle school retreat. Our service was great with a full choir of regular folks and young people. After church, we found Reagan and then had to go and retrieve her bags.
  • Next up, was lunch at Dana's house to celebrate Grannymom's birthday. Dana had Mexican and all the fixings. After we ate, everyone sang Happy Birthday to Grannymom before having cupcakes and ice cream sundaes. She opened her presents, and then the kids all played outside until we headed home.
  • Once at home, I started to work on the laundry while everyone else unloaded the car and straightened a bit. Grannymom and Grandpa came over to help work on our ceiling fan in our room. It seemed to be an easy fix for Grandpa and Robby. The girls packed their bags and headed on home with Grannymom when they left.
  • We didn't do much at all for the rest of the afternoon. The boys spent a good deal of time watching Minecraft videos. Since the girls were gone, Whitman didn't have his usual buddies so he hung with his brothers like glue. He must think he is as old as they are.
  • The boys grabbed themselves supper, and we all ate different things while sitting in the kitchen. Then we all watched a movie about Jackie Robinson until bedtime. We let the boys finish the movie so they were up until almost 10. It was a pretty interesting movie but we did have to have a conversation about all of the words that they heard! Hope Whitman wasn't listening!
