  • Did you hear the rain this morning? It was wonderful and absolutely perfect. It was so perfect, that I hit my alarm over and over again. We could tell that the kids were not awake so I decided that everyone should be able to sleep in a little bit longer. Now, that did mean that our work together time was shortened.
  • When I did head up the stairs to wake everyone up, Campbell was walking down. Everyone else though were pretty difficult to wake up. Nearly impossible. Their rooms were so dark, and the rain was pitter pattering on the roof so loudly. 
  • Once I did get everyone downstairs, they fixed their breakfasts and ate while I did a tiny bit of reading. Then it was time to start on today's school work. My big boys acted like crazy boys all morning long. Thankfully, everyone finished their school work at a decent time.
  • We had our lunch and then started on our afternoon-chores, working on Keaton's winter clothes, reading with Whitman, typing for the big kids, Jr. Ranger books, more history and science reading and then finally the treadmill for me.
  • This evening, we picked up a pair of blue jeans for Anderson from Walmart. Poop, if they weren't too small. I have to get that boy new jeans and khaki shorts as soon as possible. 
  • Then we ran to Chick-fil-a to eat our last free meals from when Robby spent the night at the Chick-fil-a in Maumelle on their opening day. I am going to miss those chicken sandwiches. I think if you count Chick-fil-a as fast food, it would be my favorite. Now, Robby disagreed and said that he would opt for a big McDonald's hamburger.
  • Our final stop-the Main library. I signed Reagan, Anderson and Graham up for a Powerpoint class. It was an hour and a half. Robby opted to go with them instead of with the littles. The class was pretty good and I do think that the crew learned something.
  • Robby was pleased that he picked the class since I was across the hall without about 200 other people making slime. It was crowded and sticky! My fingers are blue, but Campbell, Keaton and Whitman had an absolute blast.
  • Once at home, the kids had a big bowl of ice cream to celebrate their day before bed.
