  • Thursdays have been my favorite day for as long as I can remember. It was rainy last night when we went to bed which made my sleep wonderful. I was hoping that the rain would continue through the day and cancel our soccer practice, but the sun shone through the clouds early this morning.
  • Today Anderson finished his spelling for the year. Actually, he finished the end of our spelling curriculum-7 levels. I made Reagan go back through each of the levels and spell all of the words to me this year. Now she has a page of words that she can't spell that we review each day. I am not too sure what I will do with Anderson next year. Possibly another spelling program or possibly what I did with Reagan.
  • Whitman goes back and forth between being super focused and super distracted all day long. It kind of makes me crazy. He did enjoy reading a book to his new Minecraft stuffed animal. Everyone was finished fairly early today-early enough that Graham and I cleaned his closet and Campbell and I finished her clothes switch over all before lunch. 
  • We had lunch and I read to everyone. Then after a few minutes, I gathered everyone to read to them again. They tried to convince me that I had read enough to them, but I would have none of that and read and read! 
  • This afternoon flew by since we left around 3 for Third Realm. We know now the workers by name, and they know all of the kids by name. It poured as we were there, and I continually checked my phone to see if soccer practice was cancelled. We then drove home in the pouring rain to put on our uniforms!
  • It wasn't rainy at the soccer fields-the sun was shining and it was even a bit warm. Keaton and Whitman had their practice first. Then Whitman and I ran to Dairy Queen to pick up hamburgers for supper. Everyone else had their practices last, and we had a car full of grass on the way home. 
  • The kids all had their showers in between eating the hamburgers-it is pretty amazing that 3 Dairy Queen hamburgers can field all 8 of us. (The burgers were doubles so we turned them into singles plus two folks had leftovers.)
  • We had a few minutes of downtime before it was finally bedtime. Campbell, Keaton and I watched an RV show-we are getting ready for November!
