  • Swim, Work, Rest, Swim, Supper, Bed-See, my blog could be really brief! I will elaborate a little bit. At 6:30, I woke up to go to the bathroom. As I was trying to go back to sleep, I heard little feet above me running. It could only be a few things-Campbell running to Keaton's bed where Whitman was sleeping, Whitman running to Campbell's bed, or Whitman coming downstairs. He never showed up in our room, so I went on back to sleep. Later I did find out that it was Whitman running into bed with Campbell. He was sleeping in there because Campbell did not want to go to bed in a room by herself last night so we offered Whitman to sleep with her. I guess I can't blame her since she has never slept in a room by herself-ever.
  • We started stirring around 8 this morning. Well, some kiddos were stirring before then. It is nice when folks can get their own breakfasts and take care of themselves for a little bit. I guess that is nice, but I do kind of miss it! 
  • We did a bit of straightening around the house, which seems to be a never ending process. Then we loaded up to go to the pool. We were minus Reagan, who had spent the night at Nonna's house, and minus Keaton, who had spend the night at Grannyom's house. 
  • The pool wasn't crowded, and everyone had a big time. When it was time for us to leave, Campbell stayed back with the Heltz for one more hour of swimming. We ran to McDonalds for lunch, Whole Foods to get a coupon and then Dairy Queen for our weekly Blizzards. Then we picked up Campbell on the way home.
  • Grannymom, Grandpa and Keaton arrived next. Grandpa helped work on Robby's outside fridge. Hopefully, they were able to fix it but we will find out in a few days. Then we had a bit of downtime until Nonna, Pops and Reagan arrived. They had taken Reagan to buy a few snacks for her upcoming camp. I had also bought a few snacks for her last night, so she will be well supplied!
  • We then went back to the pool. Anderson opted to stay at home. While we were gone, he had a snack, took a shower and played on the xbox for a good long while. I think he would have enjoyed the pool, but I know that he also enjoyed being alone for a little bit. 
  • Robby ran an errand while we were at the pool, and then when we left, he ran into Kroger. Not only is tomorrow our anniversary, it is also National Ice Cream day so obviously, we must be prepared!
  • Once at home, I heated up leftover chicken, fish, hamburger, steak and pizza, and my fridge is still bursting with leftovers. Reagan tried to do a bit of packing before bed but didn't get very far. She will have a busy day tomorrow with packing, church, a Bible study, practicing with her camera and one little school thing I need her to do before she leaves. I hope she can do all of that while I get my Sunday afternoon nap! (Kidding, well not really!)
