  • Well, the 2018-2019 school year is all wrapped up at the Dennie house. It is a wonderful feeling which doesn't really last long because everyone will have work to do each day during the summer, and I am already feeling the need to start planning everyone school for when we begin again in July. 
  • I think that everyone was pleased with ending school and they all ended up in a good note...except Whitman. He ended up at the table with a warning to not get out of the chair until all of his school work was finished. Campbell walked by the kitchen at one point (I was trying to stay away) and noticed that his papers were all on the floor along with his pencil. He told her that he could not get out of his chair to get his work or pencil so he wasn't able to finish his work. 
  • And yes, he did finally finish when I told him that he was going to have to go shopping with us if he didn't finish his last two pages. He flew through those pages because he sure didn't want to go shopping !
  • We left him, Reagan and Anderson at home around lunch as Campbell, Keaton, Robby and I ran an errand or two. We went to the tent sale at Edwards-we left with 2 cases of water, 1 bag of potatoes, 3 flats of strawberries and lunch for all of us (hot dogs and bbq sandwiches). 
  • Next stop was the Tractor Supply store for Robby to pick up a little trailer. Then it was to Walmart to pick up a few things...and yes, even though we had a list when we made it back to the car, we remembered all of the things that we didn't get.
  • We weren't home very long before we headed to Third Realm for a little bit. Then we all went to Dana's house to celebrate Grandpa's 87th birthday. I think that he enjoyed all of the grandkids singing Happy Birthday to him. 
  • We then took the big boys and Cash to basketball for the evening. On the way we did stop at Arby's to grab a bite of supper. After dropping the boys off, we went back to Walmart and also to Sams. 
  • Then Robby did some grocery shopping while the girls, Whitman and I spent his Christmas gift card to Five Below. Yes, I am a little late on letting him do this, but there are so many of them! That boy felt like it was his birthday. He would pick out something and I would tell him that he could get one more thing. He couldn't believe all of the things that he left with-2 full bags of fun.
  • We then picked up the boys and headed home. At home, everyone showered and then helped me with the strawberries. It took a little bit of time but everyone seemed to enjoy helping. They all jumped to help clean up as well since that meant that they were finished. 
  • Once again. we are going to bed tonight not real sure if we are playing soccer tomorrow. Luckily, we have a later game so we don't have to wake up at the crack of dawn.
