  • Today was the first day of Vacation Bible School. I woke up at a decent time-not as early as I wanted, but I was able to get all of my bags in the car before it was time to go. The list of bags/items in the car today included-my bag/purse, VBS lesson bag, clothes bag, swimming bag, floatie bag, ice chest 1, ice chest 2 and library book bag. Sometimes I wonder why I am mentally exhausted!
  • Reagan and Keaton bought VBS shirts today. Graham and Campbell are going to buy some tomorrow if the adult sizes come in. I told them that I would pay for half of their shirt. I am not feeling to sorry for their financial situations since they are rolling in their Moose Money ($15). Anderson, my wise and frugal child, was passing on a shirt. 
  • I only had to tell my Bible story 4 times instead of 5 which I had expected. So I was able to have a break which was nice. Everyone seemed to have a really good time. Whitman came home with a whistle which was lovely! (Sarcasm!)
  • After I found everyone, we headed to the library for me to pick up some books. Then we ate lunch at Grannymom's house. She had grilled cheese and a dessert for us. Once everyone ate, they changed into their bathing suits, and we headed to the pool. There were 3 other families from church at the pool with us and counting friends that were brought, there were 24 kiddos. Plus the pool was already packed when we arrived, so it was a pretty crazy day. 
  • We stayed for 3 hours, and by the time that we left Anderson was pretty exhausted. He had also ripped his swim shorts. Graham did the other day but does have a spare. Anderson doesn't have a spare so he will get a new pair tomorrow. I was a bit shocked that both boys ripped their shorts until I realized that this is their second year to wear these trunks which are hand me downs anyway, so no telling how old they are.
  • Once we came home, some folks took showers, but everyone worked on their Jr. Ranger books. We have about 10 that we brought home to finish from the trip and started on them today. I painted Campbell and Keaton's fingernails, and Whitman and I also worked on his reading book and school work. 
  • By the time all of that was accomplished, it was time for supper. Robby was already working on quesadillas. We gobbled down quite a lot of quesadillas. I think that my crew was pretty hungry from swimming most of the afternoon. 
  • After supper, we watched some of the hogs baseball game on tv. It was a pretty quiet evening around here and everyone was almost in bed at 9. Hallelujah!
