  • Robby and I both woke up during the storm last night. It was pretty nice hearing the thunder roll. I did expect someone to come downstairs, but really I guess the only folks who might come down are Campbell, Keaton and Whitman. They all slept right through the lightening and thunder.
  • I stayed in bed a bit longer this morning because I was enjoying reading about all of the weather and roads that were closed. Apparently, Lawson was a mess this morning. Quite a few kids were out of school today, but my kids didn't get wet at all on their way to school.
  • We did our reading and then started on our last day of school for the week. We continue marking things off of our lists so people are finishing earlier each day which makes for a nice day. 
  • I was able to throw a few more things in a garage sale box. I should have taken a picture but we completely filled up the back of Robby's car. We even had to take down his seats so everything would fit. I really could probably go back through the house and fill the back of the car again.
  • We ate lunch and then did some reading for school. Now, after we read the kids made their signs for their lemonade stand. Once we finished the signs, Campbell, Keaton and I made 2 batches of snickerdoodles. The kids have always wanted to have a lemonade stand so we are doing it up big-unfortunately, when you have 5 brothers and sisters, your profit is split by 6 so they won't make too much at all. 
  • At 4, we met out buddies at Third Realm. Everyone jumped without too much drama. Then Robby brought his car which Reagan and I jumped in and headed to Dana's house. I didn't plan on the rain coming back and coming back with a vengeance while we were trying to unload the car, but it sure did.
  • We then ran to the grocery store in the messy rain. By the time we got back to the car and threw the bags in the back, we were pretty soaked. When we made it home, Robby already had waffles, sausage and strawberries ready for everyone's supper. 
  • It was a fairly quite night around the house. We finished getting ready for tomorrow, I pulled out some school for next week and even stuffed a few Easter eggs. Eventually, it was bedtime for everyone and I am even a bit sleepy tonight.
